February 14, 2018
I’d like to first express my deepest sympathy and condolences for our Friends, Family and Fans that have been affected by today’s school shooting in Florida. Being a bereaved parent myself- my heart is aching and breaking for these parents who are embarking on a journey they never signed up for and would never imagine. We are praying for these families as well as those precious children who had to go through such trauma. May the Lord be near tonight.
Many of us have lived through so many of these tragedies and I know your hearts ache as well. I know many of our owners have been through such tragedies and I know this shooting today just brings all of the raw emotions to surface. Many prayers for you as well.
We have had a super busy week as we are continuing to complete our new building along with taking care of the daily events with all of our kiddos.
Yesterday was our youngest, Nathan’s cardiology appointment. Nathan came to us through adoption and suffered a traumatic birth resulting in HIE. He has a hole in his heart that we have been monitoring and were hoping it would be mended by now. It is still there, but the doctor is quite hopeful that Nathan will not need surgery for quite some time. As always, we appreciate your prayers for our little guy who is thriving and growing at warp speed.
We do have a few updates for you to notice in our Brie/Duke litter and Lina/Paddington litter. Now, I’ll let you get back to sampling all of those chocolates in those big heart packages right after you scroll down to see just what is happening in your litters. . .ok. . .I’M the one wanting to get back to the chocolates. . .
CURRENT and Next Season’s Breeding Schedule: (this is our Spring/Summer 2018 schedule)
Here is what we have now and have planned: scroll down to the FAQ section to see how to place a deposit and to answer many questions.
Mrs. Beasley/Burton F1b Petites
1 girl, 2 boys
What Happens Now?
Mrs. Beasley has been recovering beautifully and the babies are super fat and healthy! Right now the girl and dark boy are the most curly and the other male is a wavy. Keep in mind that they are all hypoallergenic and will not shed no matter the curly or wavy coat. The curly coat does have less dander so it is best for asthmatics and those allergic to saliva. The puppies are now one week old! They’ve had their first vet visit and had their dew claws removed. They are still spending their days sleeping and nursing.
What Happens Next?
Around day 14, we will see the first eyes opening and we will notice the puppies responding to noise. This means their ears will be opening. They will begin crawling around instead of scooting and we will begin our socializing and potty training.
Puppy picking will be Saturday, March 17 (St. Patrick’s Day)- times are listed by the names. Puppies will be going home Saturday, March 31st at 10am.
- Cordes- 10am
- Swearingen- 11am
- Young/Neal- 12pm
Past Beasley/Burton puppies
Sammy/Paddington F3 Mini’s (white, cream, peanut butter coloring 25-35 lbs) Litter Reserved
Sammy is HUGE! She is still active but starting to slow down with that big belly. I always find it humorous to watch the mommas at this stage. They take their hind legs and scratch the belly as the puppies move around inside. I’m sure it feels weird to them. Sammy has been moved to the nursery and her whelping box is being prepared. A few days before her due date we will start to take her temperature twice a day. The average temperature for a pregnant dog is around 101.5. When the temperature drops below 100, we can expect labor to start within 24 hrs.
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. Everyone should have received their purchase contracts earlier this week. Please let me know if yours did not go through.
- Manor (double listed)
- Wait list: Kuyrkendall, Mercado, Colbourn
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. LITTER FULL! WAIT LIST ONLY NOW.
Lina is doing well and as active as ever. With larger dogs, it takes a little longer to see that expanding belly. Right now I will say I have some concern that her belly is not as large as it normally is at this point in the pregnancy. So, we are praying and asking you to join us to pray that she is full of plenty of puppies for everyone listed! I can’t wait for these babies! Her due date is March 3 which would put puppies going home at the end of April/Beginning of May.

Snowflake/Burton English F1 Mini Goldendoodles (35-45 lbs)
We are now just waiting for Snow to go into cycle. UGH! I know, I’m waiting right along with you! Any DAY now! 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 any time nowwhich will mean puppies will go home around May/June 2018. I received an update from one of our owners of this past litter who mentioned that her puppy is now just under the 30 lb mark. So it is possible to have a puppy just under our estimated 35 lbs. Although, this puppy still has some time to put on fat which could boost her up to the 35 lb mark. Just wanted everyone informed as I learn about each puppy sent home.

Brie/Duke F1bb Mini/Medium Goldendoodles. Well- if you’ve been following us for a while, you’ve seen that our lives are always exciting and we often encounter the unexpected. Brie has been cycling and this is usually the cycle we skip for the year. BUT- with the ice storm on Sunday- All dogs were let out to hurry up and potty before the freezing rain came in. Brie was bred by Duke. I know, exciting and UGH! Right dogs to breed, just the wrong time frame. I know many of you were wanting puppies for Christmas. So, we will most likely be having puppies from Brie going home around the first week in June. If the timing is off for you- we will certainly work on fitting you into another litter like hers. I know many are also double listed on Lina’s current litter.
These puppies mature between 30-40 lbs and are cream, white and a peanut butter coloring. The coats are a soft curly and wavy coat.

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.
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.
