Thank you for stopping by to see just what is happening at Lamgo Farms in this week’s Update. We are doing great and enjoying all of these beautiful puppies!!! This week we have a puppy picking for Maybelline’s litter and then we start the real work of crate training, potty training, and continued socializing. I must admit. . .I LOVE Fall and Winter litters for this main reason. . .potty training. Puppies do so much better potty training in the cold. They can stay outside longer because of those thick coats and they don’t drink as much which means they learn how to “hold it” longer. Yep, you guessed it. . .this is MY season folks!
Right now we are in a waiting pattern for our final fall/winter/spring breedings before we move on to our summer litters. Please keep checking back in for updates and any announcements.
Between now and the New Year, we will be incredibly busy with puppies and the holidays. But I still want to hear from you! I’m emailing on Tuesday and Thursdays and if I don’t get back to you right away . . .just send me another or text me at 817-366-7995. You’re NOT bothering me. . .you’re giving me a nice reminder which is greatly appreciated during this busy time.
Now, before we bust. . .let’s hop on down and see all of those cute puppies and just what is happening in each of your litters. . .
CURRENT and Next Season’s Breeding Schedule: (this is our Fall/Winter 2017 and Spring/Summer 2018 schedule)
Here is what we have now and have planned:
Maybelline/Paddington Mini Double Doodles
Maybelline gave birth to 5 boys and 3 girls October 3. Girls are purple, pink and light green collars. The rest are boys. Puppies going home November 25.
What’s Happening Now:
The puppies are now 5 weeks and 2 days old and doing excellent! I just love these little guys. They are so attentive and playful and loving! Just the best of everything. We are feeding most of them a solid diet. A few still don’t that their teeth, so they are getting gruel along with some kibble. Maybelline is still nursing 2 to 3 times a day but is no longer with them in between feedings. This makes the transition a lot less stressful for the babies when we gradually move momma away. The puppies are playing and we are just now introducing the “sit” command. Puppy picking is THIS Saturday!!! Yay!!! I will be emailing your temperament testing results today so you can take today and tomorrow to review prior to your picking appointments. Please let me know if you do not receive them by this evening.
What Happens Next:
After puppy picking is completed the real work begins. Weaning should be complete by week 6 and the puppies will receive their first set of puppy shots. I will be emailing you more information after puppy picking. One of these emails will include the exact shots your puppy is receiving so you can make your first puppy Vet appointment and have all information in hand. I will also be emailing training material and puppy pick up instructions.
Puppy Picking is Saturday, November 11, 2017. All times listed are CST. If you need to set up a long distance pick- please send me a message.

The Double Doodle: F1 Mini Chocolate Labradoodle mixed with an F1b Mini Red Goldendoodle. Puppies will be a chocolate/red color with a wavy coat that matures between 25-35 lbs.
Brie/Duke F1bb Medium
6 girls, Born October 22, 2017
Going home December 16, 2017
What is Happening Now: (**Please check the picking schedule below for a few time changes)
Oh just look at these beauties!!! The individual pictures really show off their cuteness. Almost everyone has their eyes open. Some take a little loner than others- but I wanted to show them off! I’ll post more pictures on our Facebook page once everyone has opened their eyes. Right now, the puppies are nursing and sleeping. They are CLEARLY getting full (even the little blue girl) and waddle away with their fat and full bellies to sleep once done eating. Brie is doing an excellent job caring for these babies. During week 2 we start the potty training process. Yep, you read that right. We start early by placing potty pads next to their bed so they can crawl to the pad to potty and then back to their bed, which his a bathroom rug. As they get older, they’ll walk farther and farther away until we start going outside. This week, the puppies will receive their first deworming. We give this every two weeks until going home.
What Happens Next:
When the puppies are nice and fat, my girls call them “potatoes.” Because they look like a row of potatoes just laying there side by side. Now that eyes are opening, I’ll allow our kiddos (not the toddler) to hold them to start the socializing process. The greatest differences are between weeks 2 and 3. Eyes and ears are open so they respond to us and they start to crawl instead of scoot around. Week 3 is all about holding them and loving on them.
Puppy Picking for this litter is Saturday, December 2, 2017 (times will be listed in your email). Puppy pick up is Saturday, December 16, 2017 at 10 am. Due to a few people moving around- some of the times have changed on our puppy picking time. Please take a look at the new schedule and let me know if your time still works for you.
Brie/Duke’s Baley (click link for baby pics)
Brie/Duke’s Emmie (click on link for baby pics)
Nala (Brie/Duke’s 2014 puppy) (clink on link for baby pics)
Parker/Squishy F1bb Pockets (white, cream- 8-16 lbs) (This is Parker’s second litter but Squishy’s first- so we do not have past puppy pictures for a litter for the two of them together. Parker was partnered with Paddington last year which gave us beautiful cream and peanut butter colored wavy coats- just larger in size due to Paddington’s larger size.)
Parker is expecting puppies due November 24th. I estimate puppies will go home late January or early February. Once puppies are born, I’ll have the exact going home day and puppy picking day so you can plan.
Parker is doing great! Still active and playing around like normal. Her belly is growing and we’ll schedule a prenatal X-ray for a puppy count to be done sometime at the end of next week. She will be moving to the puppy nursery after our puppy picking this Saturday. This way she can nest and relax knowing she has the perfect place to deliver her babies.

What breedings to you have coming up? Please scroll down 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 down until you see your desired litter. Any available picking spots will be listed as “open.”
How do I reserve a picking spot? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with “deposit” in the subject line. Note which litter and number on the picking spot you prefer. 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.
Are Deposits refundable? Unfortunately, due to the high demand of our puppies, we no longer refund deposits. 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 7 children. Ages 21, 16, 15, 13, 9, 1 and 3 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 2 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 between 10-11am. 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 during the months of November through May. Our summer months are too hot to fly. Flying is an additional $450.
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.

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.
