January 3, 2018
We have been enjoying the colder weather, although with a hard freeze does come some extra planning and challenges. We’re waiting for water lines to thaw for the cattle and waiting for a little more of a warm up so the dogs can run around outside for long periods of time. I’m excited to have a hard freeze to get rid of the bugs both in the ground and in the form of viruses.
Yep, we rang in the new year with the flu. So far it’s hit everyone but the babies. They were tested at the doctor’s office on Tuesday and so far they have escaped it. They only have colds, which is hard enough with little lungs. So, we’ve been managing the farm and dogs on a “who is the sickest of them all” logic. Mostly that left my husband and I doing everything for a week once our oldest son was diagnosed. I’m on day 3 and loaded with Tamiflu, so I’m still in the “what kind of bus just hit me” phase.
We’re praying for everyone to stay well after this bump in the road. Perhaps we used up all of our sickness for 2018 in the first week? Well, we can hope.
Now, enough about our health- let’s move on to the puppies! We have our puppy picking for Parker’s sweet little pocket sized doodles this Saturday! I can’t wait for these owners to see just how little they are going to be. Yet, they look like all of our other doodles.
At the end of our current breedings- I’ve listed a few of our upcoming and new litters. If you have sent a deposit and do not see your name- please do text me at 817-366-7995 to make sure I have your information. If you see your name and it is accurate- hold on. . .purchase contracts, Health Warranty and supply list is on it’s way!
We are excited that our newest momma’s to be, Charmin, Bella, Jasmine and Boston will bring the best of our best after many years of breeding our greatest lines together! We are so excited to see these puppies and are praying for God’s blessings over our new families and litters for 2018.
Sadly, we are retiring a few of our momma’s who have given such beautiful puppies. But we are encouraged to see the lives changed by these beautiful doodles and are happy we have kept a few puppies to keep the wonderful characteristics in these lines going for years to come.
Now, let’s sit down and scroll on to see just what is happening in our planned litters for this year and the next. . .
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:
Parker/Squishy F1bb Pockets- Litter Reserved
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:
These are the most adorable babies ever! I just want to put them in my pockets and walk around with them. Hmmm. . .too much info maybe? Anyway- they are at the end of the weaning process and are ready to be separated from momma this weekend after puppy picking. We will complete another round of deworming and then they will have their first set of shots on Saturday after picking. I don’t want to vaccinate them just before picking to cause any extra stress. This weekend is puppy picking. . .times are listed below and you all should have received your email of puppy picking instructions along with directions to the farm. Please let me know if you have any questions.
What Happens Next:
We will be moving Parker away from the puppies this weekend and then will start the crate training process. We will put 2 to one crate and 3 to the other. This way they can get use to the crate without being stressed out. Once they get use to the crate together, we’ll move them by themselves.
Puppy picking for this litter is scheduled for Saturday, January 6. Puppies will be going home Saturday, January 20 at 10am.
- Scroggins- 10am
- Andrews- 11am (Long distance)
- Henrichson- 12pm (Long distance)
- Bottenfield- 1pm
- Taylor- 2pm
Mrs. Beasley/Burton F1b Petites (all shades of red- both curly and wavy- 16-20 lbs)- LIST FULL!
Mrs. Beasley is now presenting pregnancy symptoms. Due to our recent illness in the family- I have not palpated her tummy to check for the feeling of babies. I will be doing that before next week’s update. But her symptoms are a great pregnancy sign!
Right now I’m setting a due date for February 7. Puppies should go home around March 31. Please keep in mind that much like humans, puppies can be born a week before or after this due date therefore- going home dates can change. Once the puppies are born, we will have the exact picking times and pick up times for you.
- Swearingen (double listed)
- Deggs (double listed)
Past Beasley/Burton puppies
Sammy/Paddington F3 Mini’s (white, cream, peanut butter coloring 25-35 lbs) Litter Reserved
Sammy is done with the breeding process. We will wait another week to confirm pregnancy. Her due date is set for February 24, 2018. Puppies should go home around April 21. Keep in mind that momma dogs can deliver up to one week before and a week after delivery date- so this would change the going home date.
- Manor (double listed)
- Wait list: Kuyrkendall, Mercado
Lina/Paddington F1bb Medium Goldendoodles (40-55 lbs) (Light red or a Peanut butter color with both wavy and curly coats). This is the same generation as Professor Raman who is from our Brie/Duke litter.
Lina has now completed all inseminations. I’m setting her due date at March 3 which would put puppies going home at the end of April/Beginning of May. We will wait another 2 weeks to confirm pregnancy. I’ll keep you posted! We have the final 2 picking spots available in this litter.

Lina and Paddington’s Past Puppies. . .
Jules/Paddington F2b Mini’s (red- 20-30 lbs) Litter Reserved
STILL Waiting! At this time, I believe Jules has skipped her scheduled cycle- so we are still waiting and praying she will start any day now. I do believe the extreme weather has affected her cycle this time around. I know many on this litter are double listed on our other litters which are now being bred. So- many may end up with puppies before this litter is bred-we are anxiously waiting for this along with you! Since our other females are starting their cycles this usually means it’s any time now!!! Our scheduled time was October/November. So, just in the waiting game right now.
- Lamgo Farms First pick
- Swearingen (double listed on Beasley’s litter)
- Wait list: O’Brien, Hayman, Shivdasani, Assing, Atit, Garrett(more on waitlist not listed)
Snowflake/Burton English F1 Mini Goldendoodles (35-45 lbs)
Snowflake and Burton had their first litter this past year. All were a “peanut butter” color with beautiful soft cotton wavy coats and blocky heads. We are excited to watch them grow! Snowflake should have her next breeding cycle in January which will mean puppies will go home around May/June 2018.

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.
What is your pricing?

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.
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.
