June 7, 2018
Right now we are up to our ears in puppy fluff and are loving every busy minute of it. Thank you all so much for your patience in waiting for paperwork and returned messages, emails and calls.
Just a reminder that just about everything you need to answer questions is right here in the update. Just scroll down until you find it. If not, then please do reach out to me! I may take a few days or a week to get back to you. . .but I’ll try my best to answer.
I also send out detailed emails to help you navigate time frames and answer questions specific to your litter. Make sure you read your emails and your section in the update so you know just what is happening and you don’t miss anything.
We want you to be informed and enjoy this journey!
I want to thank you all for allowing me to be late on this week’s update. We’re usually a little late on weeks where temperament testing and picking are coming up. But this week had a few special days in it for us.
On June 5th we celebrated the life of our sweet son, William, who passed away to HLHS 21 years ago! We took a few days to remember him and spend extra time with our other children. God was so very gracious in giving us a good day while we revisited the past.
We have always adopted and welcomed new ones into our lives when we are full of puppies! So, we have this thing down now.
For those of you picking and picking up near our baby’s due date- I will try my best to let you know if we have any schedule changes. Most of the time, we simply alternate who will be at the hospital and I am able to conduct business here at home.
Please keep us in your prayers as we navigate these waters once again!
Ok, enough shock therapy for one night. . .let’s slide on down to see just what is happening 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.
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.
Girls are bright blue collar, dark pink, light pink and lavender collars. Boys: black, brown, red, orange, yellow and green
What’s Happening Now:
Can you believe it? Picking time is upon us already! The puppies are now fully weaned and have been split up a bit to start getting use to the idea of being in smaller groups and eventually, moving on to being by themselves when they are home. Picking is this Saturday! And for the big news. . .Lamgo Farms has chosen Bright blue collar girl to stay here with us. I can’t wait for you to meet everyone! You all should have received puppy picking instructions, directions to our farm as well as temperament testing results. If you are missing something, please let me know asap!
What Happens Next:
After puppy picking, the puppies will receive their first set of shots and another deworming. We will start crate training 2 to a crate and then move them by themselves along with their scented item. Then it’s time to go home!!!
Puppy Picking is scheduled for Saturday, June 9, 2018. All times listed are central time. Each appointment will last 1 hour. 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.

What’s Happening Now:
Oh Linda’s babies are absolutely adorable! I can’t wait to see them running around a little more in the days to come. We’re already seeing the some personalities emerging. Right now the puppies are still nursing and eating their gruel. They are also starting to sample some hard kibble right now. We are working on socializing and simply playing. Another deworming is this week. Each of you should have received puppy picking instructions and directions to the farm. This is to get you well and prepared to choose your puppy.

5 girls and 4 boys ( I realize I labeled one of the girls a boy- ran out of my typical girl colors- I’ll make this correction tomorrow for you as tonight I can’t remember which boy color was the girl!)
What’s Happening Now:
Oh my goodness! I don’t need to say much about these little ones. Just look at the beauty! I love how uniform this breeding is for us. Right now the puppies eyes and ears are open and they can hear my ridiculous singing! Poor babies! They are still sleeping and nursing all day long but that will change in a few short weeks. Now that the eyes are open, the girls can start to handle them!

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 email@example.com 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.
