May 9, 2018
We have new puppies and are getting ready for another puppy picking this weekend! Yay! I can’t wait for our owners to see these babies! Absolutely beautiful.
With our new large litter, my email has been greatly neglected. Thank you so much for your patience! I know several of you are inquiring about our new Bella litter and a few for future litters. I do believe we will have available spots opening up in our Snowflake litter due to so many being double listed. So keep visiting the weekly update for any new openings.
We do have openings in our Bella litter, however, we do have inquiries already in my inbox and some on the wait list. If you’ve sent an email- I’ll be emailing tomorrow night and will try to respond to as many of you as possible.
I have the awesome opportunity to visit my Dentist tomorrow (ugh) so I’ll be unavailable during the day- but will sit down at the laptop tomorrow night.
This coming week is full of awesomeness!!! Sunday is Mother’s Day. This great day of showing our thankfulness for Mother’s is both awesome and hard for many. I just want to take a moment and say Happy Mother’s Day to my own momma who has been so great to us! We are so very thankful she is here with us after several close calls. I am also blessed to have the absolute best and amazing Step mama out there! Happy Mother’s Day Linda!
I am aware of those who are missing their mother on this day. My husband is one of those. I will forever be thankful for this woman I actually knew before meeting my husband. We miss her dearly and our thoughts are with those of you missing mother’s this year for the first time.
I have a special soft spot for those of us who are celebrating Mother’s Day without our children here on earth. For my fellow bereaved mommas. Big hugs and lots of love as this week can be oh so hard.
For my friends experiencing loss and the hurt of empty arms and infertility. . .this day is like a knife to the heart. My prayers are with you this week for peace and grace.
Back to the hubs real quick. I don’t mention him enough but he is the backbone of this farm. Phil and I will be celebrating our 24th wedding anniversary on the 14th. It has been an amazing ride with this great man of mine! So, I’ll be completely unavailable as we’ll most likely go out for a lunch and movie on Monday. Yeah, I said lunch. . .we’re getting old and have babies and puppies and a farm. . .so we turn in at 9pm. Haha!
Thanks for reading through all of that! Now, let’s tend to the most important thing this week. . .and that’s just what is happening in each of your litters. . .scroll on down!
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:
Things are moving right along! We had our temperament testing today and results will be emailed tomorrow! Puppy picking is THIS Saturday! Your times are listed below. The puppies are busy playing and enjoying being held. They are slightly spoiled. Puppies are officially weaned! Yay! They are doing great and as fat as can be.
What Happens Next:
The puppies are just now getting some teeth, so we will be giving more and more kibble and transitioning from gruel to kibble this next week. After puppy picking, we will introduce the puppies to their crates. This will start with them simply having the crate in with them and then slowly moving them all by themselves. With a litter of just 3- we do things just a little different than with our large litters. The puppies will also have their first set of shots. After puppy picking I will be emailing reading material with what happens next!
Puppy picking is May 12. Appointments are one hour long. Times are listed below. Puppies will be ready to go home on Saturday, May 26 at 10am.
- Mercado/Assing-10am- long distance pick
- Deggs- 11am
- O’Brien- 12 pm visit
Bella / Paddington F1b English Mini/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 mostly wavy and some curly coats. Some straighter coats can have a shedding capability but nothing like a retriever. We will know after birth if we have any straighter coats.
Bella delivered 4 girls and 6 boys on Wednesday, May 2, 2018. All puppies are absolutely beautiful and doing well. They visited the Vet on Monday and had their dewclaws removed. Bella is a fabulous momma! All owners have been emailed and will receive another email tomorrow regarding our puppy picking. Right now the puppies are nursing and sleeping and gaining weight. Their eyes and ears are closed right now so they use their sense of smell to find momma to nurse. The pictures above are from Monday. I’ll have new pictures with their collars sometime this weekend and will post them to our Facebook page. Individual pictures will begin at 2 weeks old.
We do have the final picking spots available in this litter. I will first be contacting those who are on our wait list and those who have recently inquired and are wanting for a returned email.
What Happens Next:
Around 14 days old we will see the first eyes opening and we will see them respond to our voices. I will have individual pictures starting at 2 weeks when we have eyes opening. Video will begin at week 3.
Here is the puppy picking schedule. We did our best to accommodate as many as possible. For those unable to attend their puppy picking appointment- we can do FaceTime or extra video.
Puppy Picking is scheduled for Saturday, June 9, 2018. All times listed are central time. Each appointment will last 1 hour. I will email you puppy picking instructions at week 4. Your temperament testing will be done at 5 weeks and then we will have picking. Puppies will be going home Saturday, June 23 at 10 am.

Brie/Duke F1bb Mini/Medium Goldendoodles.
This litter has been cancelled and owners notified as Brie’s breeding did not take and cysts were discovered instead. We will wait on testing and removal of cysts to see if future breeding is even a possibility. At this time, unless my Vet is 100% for breeding, Brie will retire.
We loved this breeding so much but we have similar genetics that produce these same great looks and quality. You can still get a Professor Ramen in one of these litters. Our Bella is Brie’s daughter and Lina and Paddington produce the same puppies as these shown below. If you are on this list and have not seen your email- check your bulk inbox and then let me know if I need to resend.

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.
