Welcome to this week’s update at Lamgo Farms! I appreciate your taking the time to stop by and see just what is happening this season. I trust each of you had a blessed Thanksgiving. We are now preparing for the Christmas season, puppy picking this weekend, and getting ready for Christmas puppies to go home! Although we have had some hiccups with a few of our kiddos medically speaking. . .the show must and always does go on!
Thank you all so much who have been praying for our 15 yr old son, Matthew. He has another appointment with a specialist this week and we are praying for answers to prayer and complete healing! I also appreciate your patience with me as we take this week to tackle this new situation along with our other son’s surgery today.
Now let’s focus on something new and exciting!
We are excited to introduce a few of our newest additions that will become our next momma’s!
Bella, one of Brie and Duke’s English Creme F1 Goldendoodles, Jasmine (Red), one of our Mrs. Beasley/Burton F1b Petite Goldendoodles and Charmin, one of Duke and Daphne’s F2b Mini Goldendoodles. And of course, our newest baby. . .Boston- who we brought in for a new line. That is how it works, we retire our favorites and take the best of the best to make new favorites.
(Charmin- left, Jasmine or “Red” as the boys call her is the red dog lower right)
We will hopefully be adding a few of these to our breeding season this time next year. Now, that the cat. . .or puppy is out of the bag. . .let’s hop on down to see just what is happening in each of your litters. We do have an announcement in Mrs. Beasley’s litter!!!
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:
Brie/Duke F1bb Medium- all reserved
6 girls, Born October 22, 2017
Going home December 16, 2017
What is Happening Now:
The puppies are doing great and oh so chunky!!! I love chunky puppies! Perhaps because I myself have some extra fluff. These babies are a pure joy. Everyone’s personality is really showing and all are super sweet, loving, gentle and laid back. It will be a hard choice for some and an easy one for others. Temperament testing was done today and the results will be emailed tomorrow sometime. I’ll also be sending out your picking instructions once again just as a reminder. Please text me at 817-366-7995 if you have any questions. Puppy picking is this Saturday, Dec 2nd. Check below for your scheduled time.
What Happens Next:
After puppy picking we will concentrate on getting the puppies fully weaned and begin our night time crate training. Please refer to your picking instructions regarding your scented item for your puppy. The puppies are already trying hard kibble and will be ready to fully wean the day after puppy picking. They will also receive their very first set of puppy shots. The next set will be due at week 9.
Puppy Picking for this litter is Saturday, December 2, 2017. Puppy pick up is Saturday, December 16, 2017 at 10 am.

Parker had 3 girls and 2 boys on Friday, November 24, 2017. Picking for this litter is January 6, 2018 and pick up is Saturday, January 20, 2018 at 10am.
What is Happening Now:
Oh just look at these babies. Sadly, Miss Little Bit did not make it, but we do have five beautiful babies here! I’ll be putting on their collars this Friday. I see 2 maybe 3 wavy coats and 2 curly. They are basically just like Brie and Duke’s babies. . .but tiny. Right now they are simply nursing and sleeping.
What Happens Next:
Right now the puppies eyes and ears are both closed. Around day 14 we will see the first slits of the eyes open and they will be able to hear me. They will go from scooting around to crawling. Individual pictures will be posted once the eyes are open. Video starts at week 3.
Mrs. Beasley/Burton F1b Petites (all shades of red- both curly and wavy- 16-20 lbs)- LIST FULL!
Mrs. Beasley has now started her cycle!!! Breeding will begin in a few days. After that time, I will have a due date posted. Prayers for a nice large litter for everyone!

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? 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.

Do you offer discounts: Yes, we offer a $300 discount for our Military owners. 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.
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.
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.
