February 21, 2018
Welcome to this week’s update at Lamgo Farms! We’re so happy you’ve decided to visit! Right now we are wondering if we should have invested in a boat with all of this rain! Wow, we have a lake both out front and back now. And it’s not going to stop any time soon!
The new puppies are thriving and we are excited for Sammy and Lina’s litters coming up!
Please join us in prayer that we will have enough puppies for everyone who wants one. We are always so blessed to see what the Lord brings us each litter!
I am happy to announce that we have invested in a few new lines and will be offering more standard/medium reds, more mini red litters next year as well as a new Sheepadoodle line which will be downsized into little Panda Doodles! EEK! I can’t wait to show you pictures next week of what we are doing!
Oh, so much and so litter time these days. I’d appreciate the prayers as I get the final touches on my book as well as praying that I make my deadline.
Emails are a little slow, but hopefully everyone has been able to use the links provided in our bounce back message to see just what is available.
Contracts are on the docket for tomorrow during the girls’ art lessons. Yay!
But until then, let’s scroll on down and see just what is happening in each of your litters. . .
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?
These babies now have their eyes and ears open! Yay! On the down side- they now have to listen to me sing. Right now the puppies are crawling instead of scooting and potty training has begun. Yep, you read that right. We place a potty pad right next to their bedding and they crawl over to it instead of messing up the bed. We will eventually move these pads farther and farther away until the go outside to potty. First deworming will be this week as well as increased stimuli socialization. This is when we hold them on their backs and touch their nose, rub their ears and paws and talk to them.
What Happens Next?
I believe the greatest changes happens between weeks 2 and 3. By week 3, the puppies will be playing with each other and walking over to Beasley’s water for a drink. Week 3 is also when we start our video series. I will include links to both their photo albums and our Youtube channel next week. You will want to subscribe to both of these so you can see video and pictures without having to wait for the update. The photo gallery is photos.lamgofarms.com and the Youtube channel is “Happenings at Lamgo Farms.”
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 – no gender preference. Wanting a curly coat.
- Swearingen- 11am
- Young/Neal- 12pm- no gender preference. Wanting a curly coat.
Past Beasley/Burton puppies
Sammy/Paddington F3 Mini’s (white, cream, peanut butter coloring 25-35 lbs) Litter Reserved
Well, Sammy is still pregnant. Very, very pregnant! I can’t wait to see these babies. Sammy is in the nursery and we are just waiting for “go time.” Once she is in active labor, I will email you and announce updates on our Facebook page. The first stage of labor is panting and shaking. This can go on for many days. Next- contractions set in and then we start seeing puppies!
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.
- Lamgo Farms
- 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 great and is active as ever- however with the rain- she’s been stuck inside staring out the window. She loves her outside time! I am still monitoring her belly as we are in a holding period before I can palate her tummy again. If for some reason we do not have enough puppies from her- we do have Brie and Duke’s litter (same generation) just in case people need to switch litters. Still praying for lots of puppies!!! Her due date is March 3 which would put puppies going home at the end of April/Beginning of May.

Lina and Paddington’s Past Puppies. . .
Jules/Paddington F2b Mini’s (red- 20-30 lbs) Litter Reserved
Jules breeding has now concluded. We will now wait another week to confirm pregnancy. Due to the rain and yucky weather- I have not yet been able to conform Jules’ pregnancy. I will be working on that as soon as the weather clears up. If confirmed- the due date will be set at March 27, 2018. Puppies will be estimated to go home around May 19.
- Lamgo Farms First pick for Mercado
- Wait list: Hayman, Shivdasani, Assing, Atit, Smith, Montez (more on waitlist not listed)
Snowflake/Burton English F1 Mini Goldendoodles (35-45 lbs)
Oh, just waiting and waiting some more! Any day now we should have signs of a heat cycle from Snowflake. 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. Duke and Brie’s breeding has concluded! We will now wait 2 weeks before I can confirm pregnancy. I know many of you were wanting puppies for Christmas.

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?
Double Doodles (mini Labradoodle/mini goldendoodle cross): $2,100
Goldendoodles (Standard, Medium and miniature): $1,950
Goldendoodles (Petite, Micro mini’s): $2,100

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.
