March 7, 2018
This past week was a BIG one for us! Our 2 babies celebrated their birthdays on March 2nd. Ava turned 2 years old and Nathan turned One whole year!!! Yes, they share a birthday which we find amazing.
The day was full of laugher and tears as we were reminded just how God moved some incredible mountains allowing us to adopt these precious babies and how He performed miracle after miracle to save their lives and bring them home to us!
Today we visited their pediatrician for annual check ups. Nathan just amazes our doctor’s office. It was just 3 days after being discharged from the NICU with Nathan that our doctor sent us to Children’s hospital. He said, “don’t break any laws, but go as fast as you can.” Nathan had pyloric stenosis on top of being diagnosed with HIE (lack of oxygen due to a traumatic delivery) Atrial Septal Defect of the heart and endured infant brain cooling. Nathan was severely dehydrated and was fading fast.
The Lord performed miracle after miracle for our little boy. To look at all 25 lbs of him today is beyond amazing after seeing him so thin and frail.
Talking the kiddos anywhere is always a bit of a circus act for us. But we wouldn’t have it any other way! Thank you all so much for the well wishes and prayers!
Sammy’s puppies are as beautiful as ever and right now we are looking at having 4 dogs being pregnant at one time. Jules, Brie, Lina and Bella!!! I can’t wait of this busy season.
Now, let’s not waste a moment. . .let’s hop on down to see just what is happening in each of your litters this week. . .
(Thank you Liberman family for these precious pictures of “Honey.”)
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.
1 girl, 2 boys
What Happens Now?
They are growing so much!!! I can’t wait for you all to see them. They just waddle with those fat tummies. They are in a kennel in the middle of the house just off of the kitchen. I’m thinking they smell all of that yummy food and that’s why they eat so much. Haha! I just love each of these babies and always love seeing those cute personalities shine through. I will be emailing puppy picking instructions along with directions to the farm tomorrow. Right now, the puppies are simply starting to play and be awake more often. They are also transitioning to hard kibble! They are big babies now!
What Happens Next?
Puppy picking is approaching! Temperament testing will be done Wednesday, March 14 and the results along with video for puppy picking will be posted on Thursday, March 15. Specifics about picking day are being emailed to you tomorrow. Please let me know if you do not get them by the evening tomorrow.
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
What’s Happening Now:
Just look at these precious babies!!! Sammy’s puppies have the softest most silky coats ever! You can see shades of peanut butter coloring, cream and apricot. The 2 girls are the dark pink collar and purple collar. The boys are blue, orange, bright green, red and brown. The red collar is the most curly of the litter and also the darkest. Everyone else has a wavy coat from what I can tell right now. Keep in mind they are only one week old today. So, a few days can help with coat determination. Right now the babies are nursing and sleeping. Their eyes and ears are still closed so they use their sense of smell to find momma.
What Happens Next:
Please note that we did have a cancellation and a few of you did move up in picking order. Also note any time changes for your picking appointments. For those unable to make the picking appointment- we will do extra video and pictures or can do a FaceTime appointment at your allotted time.
Around day 14 we should see the first slits of eyes beginning to open. We will also administer the first deworming at week 2 and continue every 2 weeks until they go home.
Puppy picking will be scheduled for Saturday, April 14 and pick up will be Saturday, April 28. Picking times listed are central time zone.
- Rinehart- prefers girl, but temperament most important – 10am
- Rice- girl – 11am
- Burger- would like a girl, but fine with a boy – 12pm
- Martin- prefers a girl – 1pm
- Garrett- 2pm
- Nugent- 3pm
- Kuyrkendall – 4pm
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 now in the breeding process. We are praying this is a real ovulation cycle and that she carries many babies for us. Her final insemination will be this weekend. This should give us a due date around May 12. Puppies if born on May 12th would go home around July 7.
Many of you are double listed with other litters. You are free to move to another litter such as Brie’s since she is already bred- or you can hang in there for a Lina baby. Please let me know your thoughts and wishes for this litter. You can also remain in this litter and double list with another just in case. God does throw us some curve balls and lately, there have been quite a few. But I know that after each and every moment of disappointment or loss we can expect a beautiful miracle just around the corner. So, that’s what we’ll be expecting! I’ll keep you posted on her inseminations. I understand this is pushing you back quite a bit- so please let us know how we can assist you!

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?

Goldendoodles (Standard, Medium and miniature): $1,950
Goldendoodles (Petite, Micro mini’s): $2,100
Goldendoodles (Pocket): $2,400
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.
