August 20, 2019
Welcome to this week’s update at Lamgo Farms! I’m so excited for all of our beautiful puppies to meet their forever families! This is the exciting part. Seeing those smiles and for some families. . .watching their kiddos walk in not even knowing why they are here!
Thank you for stopping by to see just what is happening in our family, on our farm and with our many furry friends!
I’ve been a little behind in getting emails and this update completed due to our large Bella litter going home this past weekend. It was a whirlwind, but we made it!
We are now in the thick of crate training and getting all of the puppy packets together for Maybelline’s litter which is going home this weekend. Then the following weekend we have Charmin’s babies going home.
It all seems to happen so fast. But I’m excited for all of our new puppies and families to meet.
We do have some new first time breedings coming up that I will introduce after we send home our Charmin babies. There is just so much paperwork and actual keeping the puppies clean and training that I need to focus on that I will tend to the upcoming litters once we are a little less busy.
On the home front. . .we will be starting back up with school the first week in September. We homeschool the kiddos year round- so it’s time to get started again. I usually start once we reach the 100 degree days. But with all of our puppies and starting physical therapy for my back- I thought we would just wait for our current litters to go home and then we can dive into school. Funny, the kids didn’t argue with me over it.
Thank you all so much for praying for my husband, Phil who is the actual one to spend the most time with these babies right now.
Phil had an MRI on his spine and neck for some horrible pain he has been having when they found a lesion on his brain stem. He went back for a brain MRI and the contrast allowed the radiologist to have relief that it did not look malignant. There is a mass in his brain that needs to be removed but Praise the Lord, it does not look like cancer.
At this time, we are waiting on insurance approval for spinal steroid injections for Phil to feel better and then we meet with a specialist to figure out just how we will get rid of this mass.
I know you all are praying and I appreciate it so much. We feel the prayers as the stress and worry lifts from our shoulders.
Well, we have a lot of updates and news and well, things are always moving fast around here. . .so let’s catch up and scroll on down to see just what is happening in each of your litters. . .

Planned 2019 Breedings
(2020 is still being planned)
Mini Double Doodles
A Double doodle is the cross between our mini Chocolate Labradoodle and our Red Mini Goldendoodle. The coat is thinner and tends to have a cotton or wire texture. Puppies tend to have more of a Labradoodle coat.
What’s Happening Now:
We are down to the final days with the sweeties! I can’t believe the time is already here. These babies have so much personality and sweetness. I’m so excited for you to meet them. They have been working hard on crate training and learning to sit for you. They are receiving their final deworming and the vet visited this week and gave everyone a clean bill of health.
What Happens Next:
Here is our picking schedule. I’ll update each of you as puppies are chosen so you know just who is remaining. We know the first pick is yellow boy. Picks 2 and 3 are in the same family so they will choose and take home on Friday. You should have receive by now:

F3 Mini Goldendoodles
Charmin delivered 2 girls and 5 boys on July 1st!
What’s Happening Now:
Oh where has the time gone? I can’t believe picking is just around the corner. Oh I just love this F3 generation. These puppies are oh so soft and these little personalities just kill me. They are funny and sweet and just full of personality. We have been crate training with a “buddy” to get familiar with their crates. Next, they will be moved to their crates all by themselves to prepare to go home. The puppies have had one last deworming and their first set of shots. You’ll be getting some reading material that will show you just what shots were given and when the next set is due so you can make arrangements to take your puppies to the vet when they get home.
What Happens Next:
Each of you should have received a few emails: Temperament testing results, directions to the farm, Puppy Picking instructions and Reading material. Please let me know if you did not receive these. I will email one last one a few days before coming which will prepare you to take your puppy home. This will have the contents of your puppy packet, a little run down of everything I’ll explain before you go just in case I miss something. This will also contain your puppy’s pedigree. We’re almost there!!!
Picking and Pick up will be on the same day, August 31. Times listed below are all central standard time.
- Sawyer- 10am
- Thomas- 11am
- Conrad-12 noon
- Garrett- 1pm
- Kuang- 2pm
- Hessler-3pm- long distance pick
Sanjay and Paddington F1bb Petite
Sanjay delivered 3 girls and 1 boy July 29.
What’s Happening Now:
These babies! I just can’t accurately describe just how adorable they are. It’s not just their looks, it’s also these little personalities. Sanjay is such a great dog, mama, friend. I see those genetics have passed down from Daphne and I can now see some of this in these beautiful puppies. They are gentle, sweet and playful. Right now since they are getting more than enough milk, we will probably just hold off on gruel for a week. They have already had one de-worming and will have another one this next week.
What Happens Next:
I’ll be updating pictures in a few days. Video and the group pictures are new but I just ran out of energy to get new ones since we’re a little off schedule. During week 4, I will be emailing directions to the farm as well as puppy picking instructions. Week 5 will be our temperament testing. The results will be emailed just before our picking at week 6. Puppies will NOT be going home after picking. They will remain here for another 2 weeks until they are ready to go home at 8 weeks old.
We will be having our picking for this litter at week 6 on September 14th and then pick up at week 8, September 28th at 11am. I’ll speak with the first pick to see if we can do Friday the 13th.
- Walls- will text you to see about when is a good time to choose.
- Hayward- Saturday, Sept 14 10am
- Howe- Sept 14 11am
Jasmine/Beans Petite Red
Jasmine delivered 3 girls and 2 boys on Monday, August 5th. Mama and babies are doing great!
What’s Happening Now:
Jasmine and the babies are doing great! Eyes are just now staring to open, but they are just little slits right now. As soon as all eyes are fully open, I’ll post pictures immediately on our Facebook page. I’m thinking just another few days.
These are clearly the petite size as Brie’s puppies just one week old are twice as big as they are! They are spending their days nursing and sleeping right now. But that will all change within a few weeks.
What’s Happening Next:
This weekend, the puppies will receive their first de-worming and we will start letting our kiddos hold them. Right now, it’s just Phil and I. We’ll start holding them on their backs while we massage their little ears, paws, tummy and we touch them on their little nose. This is our socializing program. It’s all about getting them ready to go home.
We will be having our picking for this litter at week 6 on September 14th and then pick up at week 8, September 28th at 12 noon. I’ll have picking times after I settle a few questions I have for a few owners.
- Warner- thinking this is a female preference right now- will see if you want to choose on Friday vs Saturday.
- Rainwater- female preference
Brie and Duke F1bb Mini/Medium
Brie delivered 3 girls and 2 boys last week on my husband’s birthday. . .August 14. All are extremely fat and healthy and doing well! I’ll post individual pictures as soon as eyes open around day 14. Right now their eyes and ears are closed and they use their sense of smell to locate mama. They are clearly spending all of their time nursing and sleeping!
The F1bb generation is our most hypoallergenic and perfect for those with severe allergies and asthma. Both wavy and curly coats although the majority are curly.

Sammy/Paddington F3 Mini Goldendoodles
At this time, I will be contacting those on this list to give my opinion. Sammy should be delivering puppies any day now if she is pregnant. She has milk sacs and I do feel something inside of her. . .but she is not huge and her uterus does not feel greatly expanded to me. I believe we either have a single puppy in there or she is doing one of her false heats where she has signs of pregnancy but no actual pregnancy. She should have really popped out this last week and we are not seeing that.
For those wanting this “look” I would suggest looking at our current Charmin litter that has 2 openings or our Lilly litter that has just been bred. We also have picking spots available in our Brie/Duke litter for those wanting a curly coat and closer to the 40-45 lb range.
I have just completed inseminations on another first time breeding with one of our own Bella daughters that we kept. She was just bred to our little Burton. So we will have all shades of red coming up a little smaller than Lilly’s puppies. The first picking spot is taken (female) but all others are open.
Please let me know if you have any questions. We do not plan to try another breeding with Sammy as her age is getting up there and more false heats could be in her future. It’s time she just plays.
Cream, white, apricot and peanut butter coloring. Wavy coats (one or two curly fleece possible). 25-35 lbs.
- White, N. (double listed on Lilly’s)
F1 Mini Goldendoodles
Inseminations are all complete. We will now wait another 2 weeks to confirm pregnancy. October 10th is our expected due date with puppies going home the final weekend in November. These puppies are usually a peanut butter coloring and have wavy coats. They mature between 27-37 lbs.
- Getterman (double listed)- this name will most likely fall off the list
- Burton (double listed)
Past Snowflake/Burton Puppies:
F2b Red Mini Goldendoodles
Lilly’s cycle has completed her inseminations. Now we wait about 3 weeks to confirm pregnancy. Due dates will be around October 11th with puppies going home around November 30. Colors are medium red with some white markings.
- White, N.
Next Future Jasmine breeding:
Jasmine aka “Red” / Beans F1bb Petite Goldendoodles
(Dec 2020/ Spring 2020)- This litter is still a 2019 breeding but puppies will go home in 2020. Just listing here so we don’t forge the “list.” We will know more on dates after her next cycle is complete. If she has plenty of puppies in her cycle prior to this, first available will be made to those on this list. At this time, I’m closing this list for further deposits until after our Spring breeding is complete.
- Rainwater- double listed with Current Jasmine litter
Parker’s F1bb Pocket Goldendoodles – Breeding again early Summer 2019. Parker will be bred to Beans or one of our F1b Pockets. We have now retired Squishy.

What breedings to you have coming up? Please scroll back Up for current and upcoming litters (scroll down for more future litters) to the “Next Season’s Breeding Schedule” to see what will be bred and what picking spots are open.
How do I know if you have any open picking spots in a particular litter? Scroll until you see your desired litter. Any available picking spots will be listed as “open.”
How do I reserve a picking spot? Complete the contact form located at the end of each litter. Then make your deposit payment by choosing the add to cart button. For litters not yet listed please Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with “deposit” in the subject line. Note which litter and number on the picking spot you prefer that is listed as open. Include your name, mailing address, phone number and any preferences you may have for your puppy. Then go to our pricing/payment page at LamgoFarms.com to place your deposit of $250. There is a $5 PayPal processing fee that will be added to your total.
Are Deposits refundable? Unfortunately, due to the high demand of our puppies, we no longer refund deposits for any reason. If for some reason we do not have enough puppies born to provide for every owner- your deposit can be transferred to your next desired litter. The $250 is a picking spot reservation. This also helps us weed out those who are not serious about taking home one of our puppies.
Do you have any paperwork we need to complete? Since our puppies are Reserved almost a year in advance- we will spend that time getting to know each of you and will be offering the proper education to make sure you are fully prepared to bring home your puppy. When placing a deposit, please include your name, email address, mailing address, phone number and any preferences you may have. Once you place your deposit, I will email you your purchase contract which also serves as your receipt. You will need to sign and email this back to me. You will also receive a suggested supply list as well as our Health Warranty. The Health Warranty is not due back until 30 days after you take your puppy home.
Do you choose the puppy for us or can we choose our own puppy? You will be asked to visit the Farm at your puppy picking appointment and will be given an hour to choose your puppy. The choice is yours. Please understand that we cannot guarantee gender availability. When it comes to our donated therapy/service dogs, we will choose the top two for you and then you can make your choice out of those.
Can we visit Lamgo Farms for allergy testing or just to see the dogs? Every puppy owner that has placed a deposit is invited to the farm between weeks 5 and 6 for a puppy picking appointment. If unable to attend- we can send extra video and pictures or FaceTime the appointment. Unfortunately- we do not allow other visitors due to the health risk for our puppies and dogs as well as for the safety of our family. If you wish to have allergy testing- it’s best to find a doodle owner and see if you can tolerate that particular generation of doodle. We have several pictures, video as well as slide shows showing our grounds, parents and past puppies. You may also visit our Facebook page and join our open forum to communicate with any of our past owners about their experience with Lamgo Farms. We welcome your questions!
Do you do temperament testing? Yes, all puppies are tested at week 5 and the results are emailed prior to your puppy picking appointment.
Do you take weekly pictures of your puppies? Yes, The first week is simply a group photo but individual pictures are taken weekly starting at week 2. Video is taken weekly starting at week 3 and concludes at week 7.
Are your puppies socialized? Yes! We now have 8 children. Ages 22, 18, 17, 15, 11, 3, 2 and 8 months old. We homeschool and are able to hold, socialize using sensory stimulation as well as play with and cuddle your puppy several times a day which prepares them for any home environment.
When do the puppies come home? Puppies are ready to go home on the Saturday between weeks 7 and 8.
Do you have a Health Warranty? Yes, Lamgo Farms has a 1 year warranty over hips and eyes.
Do you Health Test your Breeding dogs? Some are OFA tested but not all. After consulting an Animal Orthopedic doctor- we learned that these tests do not offer the assurance that puppies will not have hip issues. A good line of breeding stock along with cross breeding and proper care of the puppy will protect and prevent hip issues.
Do you allow boarding after the release date of the puppy? Unfortunately, we are unable to keep your puppy past the pick up date. You will be notified within 24 hours after the birth as to your picking appointment time as well as puppy pick up date/time/information. This will allow you at least 7 weeks to make pick up arrangements. Pick up is on a Saturday a 10 am. We do sometimes offer a Friday pick up by appointment. Lamgo Farms is closed on Sundays and cannot do picking appointments or pick up appointments at that time.
Do you fly puppies out of state? At this time, we only fly pet cargo during the months of November through May. Our summer months are too hot to fly. Flying is an additional $450. We use both Flight Nannies (for dogs that stand no taller than 11 inches) and pet cargo flights. We can fly during the off season with Flight Nannies only.
What is included in the price of the puppy? An awesome Lamgo Farms PUPPY. . . complete puppy packet: Crate, potty training bells, nutritional supplement, toys, treats, scented blanket from littermates, training material, folder with health records, pedigree, etc, emailed photo collage of your puppy as well as a 10 lb bucket of premium puppy food that will last a few months.

Do you offer discounts: Yes, we offer a $300 discount for our Military owners. Verification of service is required. Once a year we also offer donation dogs for those medically requiring therapy or service dogs. Please email me your circumstance and we will pray and ask God for the answer. We have a medical form that needs to be completed by a doctor to qualify for service needs.
Do you have a Spay/Neuter clause? Yes. All of our puppies are sold with our contract stating all males must be neutered before 5 months old and females must be spayed before 6 months old. We no longer sell for breeding purposes. Puppies not fixed by the requested time frames will void the Health Warranty.
What sets Lamgo Farms apart from other Goldendoodle breeders? First, having 14 years experience in breeding Goldendoodles- we have learned quite a bit about what to breed to create the perfect doodle for every coat type and personality desired as well as our dedication to each litter. Living on a farm and homeschooling allows us to constantly lay hands on the puppies and give them the ultimate care they need and you desire in a breeder. We care greatly for our puppies and owners and strive to give that personal touch to every one and puppy that comes our way. We also trust God to give us the perfect puppy you desire. We pray over every breeding and puppy and are genuinely blessed with the ability to raise these fluffy friends.
Pictures and Video: When we do have puppies. . .Pictures will be uploaded in our photo gallery at photos.lamgofarms.com and on our Facebook page. Video will be located on our Youtube channel at Happenings at lamgo Farms. Weekly pictures will start at week 2 and Video will start to be taken when puppies are three weeks old.
