How to upgrade your house
To upgrade the shack you live in, you must have two things, lumber and ALOT of money. Go to the carpenter's house and check to the right of the bed and there will be a sheet. Check the sheet and it gives you a choice:
3. Log-terrace (Deck)
4. Baby bed
(These are not in order) Choose one and he'll say he'll be over to see if you have the money and lumber. Go back to your ranch and if you have the materials, he'll tell you he will start tommorow.
How to get rid of your dog
If you want to get rid of that no good mutt just bring it in the bathroom and place it on the ground. Then let it walk around and eventually it will walk into the black where you can't and will fall down some sort of hole. You can call for it but it won't come, you will just hear it's barking.
How to get the Music Box
During the Summer go to the dog house. Line yourself with it facing your field (you'll be in between the dog house and the crate that you put your veggies in) From there walk towards the end of the field (you'll have to go around the crate) untill (like it says in the map) the tree, the same tree you found the map in, is to your left. Now dig in the spot where the two (dog house and tree)line up. You'll have to strike the ground with the hoe about 10 times. You'll get a rusted up music box. Take it to the tool shop and the shop keeper (Rick) will fix it for you. It's purpose is to be given to the girl you like because it plays a love song.

Milk and Wool upgrades
For Milk: When you get a cow it makes small milk(100G) to make it give you better milk "forget" to feed it one day. The next day she will be sick. Buy a medice from the rancher or potion man. Use it and your cow will produve medium milk(150G). Do this again and it will produce large milk(300G). You can't use this method to get gold milk though (500G). The only way to get that is to win the cow festival (Fall 4th at green ranch) For Wool: Do the same thing you did to get better milk except only do it once. Wool:900G, Good Wool: 1800G

When your cursor is highlighting the horse names, press B and exit out of the screen. It gives your money back, but it keeps the medals that you bet on the horses! Just don't talk to her again until after the races and if your horse wins, then you'll get the medals just as if you had payed!
To receive a Anti-Rain Power Berry, catch a small fish, and then throw it into the pond where you first met the fisherman, a blue monkey should appear and give you a berry, which allows you to not get tired during rainy days. Another one is to throw any vegetable into the pond near the carpenters house, a spirit will appear and gives you a wish to use for one of three choices, Weather, strength and love.
Note: Do not wish for love if you have a mate with a pink heart in her text box, it will do nothing.
The pond behind the fisherman's tent freezes during the winter so that you can walk on it. If you have the golden hammer, walk onto the frozen pond and hit the rock in the back with your most powerful swing. The rock will break and a power berry will come out.
If you look in the tree on your farm by pressing the A button there will be a treasure map inside.
