April 25, 2018
Today was a crazy weather day. We started off with mild temperatures and a calm wind. By 10 am, the wind was blowing me down (that’s hard to do) and it was COLD! Even my flowers are confused.
But it was nice to get to dress the babies in some warm clothes one last time before they outgrow them.
The horses seemed to really enjoy it though. The doodles stayed inside once it started to rain. Burrrrrrr!
Our first Sammy/Paddington puppy went home today since they are officially now 8 weeks old! You’ll notice there is not an update for them this week as they are getting ready to go home! Crate training is going well and they are ready to go to their forever homes!
We have been busy training the little doods, grooming the bigger doods and preparing for all of our new litters coming up! It looks like we will once again have multiple litters at one time. With a few staggered to help with the work load.
Preparations include re-arranging the nurseries to make sure all momma’s feel safe and secure as well as pre-ordering supplies to make sure we have everything we need now.
On the Homefront- this means food prep! This is when I cook all week long double the servings and freeze meals so he family can still eat while I tend to puppies.
The month of May is our final school month in homeschooling. So I do apologize for the delay in purchase contracts and returned email. Feel free to send me another message or email if I’m behind in getting back to you. I’m excited to see how we can help you find your dood!
Now, enough chit chat. . .let’s scroll on down and see what’s happening this week in each of your litters. . .
CURRENT and Next Season’s Breeding Schedule: (this is our Summer/Fall/Winter 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.
Jules/Paddington F2b Mini’s (red- 20 lbs) Litter Reserved
boy- light blue, girls- lavender and light pink collars
What’s Happening Now:
Oh I just loved playing with these babies this week. They are so adorable and sweet. I can’t wait for you to see them next week as they will be much more active. Right now we are simply socializing them and letting them nurse and grow. The big stuff is yet to come.
What Happens Next:
Next week we will begin to see those little personalities emerge. I’ll be emailing next Wednesday your puppy picking instructions to help you prepare for your picking appointment. Most questions should be answered in that email. Directions will also be sent to you for travel plans. For those unable to attend picking- we can do a long distance pick with video or FaceTime. Temperament testing will be done before picking during week 5.
Puppy picking will be scheduled for May 12. Appointments are one hour long. Times are listed below. Puppies will be ready to go home on Saturday, May 26 at 10am. This is Memorial Day weekend. Extended stay is possible for an additional week for those who already have plans for this weekend. Our extended stay pricing is $30 per day which includes the second set of shots.
- Deggs- 11am
- O’Brien- 12 pm visit
Brie/Duke F1bb Mini/Medium Goldendoodles.Brie is doing great and it looks like we will go past her due date with is today! I believe she ovulated late and since we let breeding take place for over a week’s time- the babies are just not done cooking (so to speak). Unfortunately, we missed her X-ray this past week as I was down with a bad back and just couldn’t make the trip. Knowing we are a little early- we will grab that X-ray sometime next week unless she starts signs of labor. It looks like we have at least another week to go if ovulation took place later than we expected. Her belly is growing and she is doing awesome!!! We will be waiting until the first signs that labor is near and then she will have a c-section for this litter. I’ll keep you informed if anything happens via email and then will update on our Facebook page after that.
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.

Lina is continuing to do well and her due date around May 12. Puppies if born on May 12th would go home around July 7. Please take note that we will not be able to keep puppies for extended stay this summer for vacations. You will know exact dates for picking and pick up as soon as the puppies are born. This will give you 6 weeks to plan for picking (we can do long distance picks for those out of town) and 8 weeks to make arrangements for puppy pick up.
Many of you are double listed with other litters. You are free to move to another litter such as Brie’s since she will deliver first- or you can hang in there for a Lina baby. We will ask you to make that decision within the first week after Brie has her puppies. Congratulations!!! And thank you all for your patience!

Lina and Paddington’s Past Puppies. . .
Bella / Paddington F1b English Medium Golendoodle: Bella is a Brie/Bison English Creme puppy and Paddington is a Beasley/Bean puppy. These will be a Peanut butter coloring, red and cream with wavy coats. Some straighter coats can have a shedding capability but nothing like a retriever. This is a first time breeding between the two so we will reserve 6 picking spots and then hold a wait list.
Bella is just as active as ever- however, her appetite has increased big time. She is carrying a lot of babies! Her due date is now set for May 13. I know several of you are double listed in other litters. So, whoever gives birth first- you will have a week to decide if you wish to stay on that litter or move to your next choice. Congratulations!!!

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
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.
