June 14, 2018
It’s been another busy week with puppies. We’ve been training, testing and working our way to getting these puppies in their owners’ arms in a few weeks.
This weekend is our puppy picking for our Lina medium Goldendoodles. And we still have a few picking spots remaining! We then have two weekends with puppies going home along with another puppy picking!
But as fast as these puppies arrived, they will be leaving us. And then we start all over again. Maybe a little sooner than expected. . . but our Maybelline Double doodles and Parker Pockets will be arriving in August! Yes, we have announcements in both of these litters for you.
So it looks like we’ll have about a month of rest from puppies before we fluff up again. Not to worry. . .we have plenty of work with our adults.
I will be taking a break from doing the update between July and August to catch my breath. I’ll give you more specific dates next week. And I promise to update if anything happens with Parker and Maybelline.
Now, I’m already running late with all of this news, so without further delay. . .scroll on down to see all of our new announcements and 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:
Oh these little fluff balls have my heart! They are doing great with their buddies in the crates and are ready to move to their own crates this weekend. I’ll let you know how it’s going. They are busy playing and learning their “sit” command. We’ve spent a few mornings outside but not for very long as it is just so hot. Keep that in mind when they go home. They can go outside to potty and play a tad, but during the heat of the day- just out to potty and then back inside. You will also notice that they may have to go “potty” more often right now. When they are hot, they will drink more and when they drink more. . .they have to potty more often. Always leave water out to drink during the day. These little bodies need it.
What Happens Next:
It’s just around the corner! Puppy pick up day! I will be emailing you all your puppy pick up instructions this weekend. This will have all of the contents from your puppy packet listed along with a few other tips to taking home your puppy and travel. Please shoot me a message or email if you haven’t already told me your pick up day. The official pick up day is Saturday, June 23 at 10am (unless you’ve made other arrangements with me). Puppies going to Hilton Butler have already been arranged. Pick up is also possible on Friday via appointment.
There will not be pictures or video next week as puppies will be crate training and getting ready to go home!!!
Puppies will be going home Saturday, June 23 at 10 am. You can also pick up your puppy on Friday, June 22 by appointment only. Yellow boy is going home Thursday, 8am.
Past Polly/Paddington puppy pictures: Bella is Polly’s sister- so puppies will look similar.
Lina/Paddington F1bb Medium Goldendoodles (40-50 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.
2 girls and 4 boys on Thursday, May 10th
What’s Happening Now:
Lina’s babies are doing great and growing! They are so soft and sweet and cuddly. I can’t wait for you to meet them in person. Each of you owners should have received your temperament testing results along with puppy picking instructions and directions to the farm. If you did not receive these. . .please text me at 817-366-7995. The puppies are now in the weaning process and have been moved away from momma at night. They are doing very well! We have puppy picking tomorrow (Friday) and Saturday. They will receive their first set of shots on Wednesday as well as another deworming.
What Happens Next:
After puppy picking and their first set of shots, the puppies will be introduced to their crates with a buddy. Once they have mastered this feat, they will be moved to their individual crates along with their scented item. This is when we will start to teach them a few commands such as “sit.”
Puppy picking will be scheduled for Saturday, June 16th. Times for each picking spot is listed below. Puppies will be ready to go home on Saturday, June 30th at 10am or we can release puppies on the 27th, 28th and 29th via appointment.
- LF – Heather 6/15
- Steelman Service Dog – 6/15 evening pick
- Garcia- 6/16 – 5pm
Lina and Paddington’s Past Puppies. . .
Snowflake/Burton English F1 Mini Goldendoodles
5 girls and 4 boys ( girls are bright blue, pink, purple, white, yellow)
What’s Happening Now:
Yay! We have video up this week on the puppies! Now, they just kind of lay there for the first video. But by next week we should see them playing and start to see those little personalities emerge. Right now they still spend all day with momma and nurse or sleep most of their time. But we will be introducing them to their first food this week which will start the weaning process. Their first food is called, “Gruel.” This is our own recipe of premium puppy food, milk replacer, nutritional supplement and warm water all blended to an oatmeal consistency. And they LOVE it! The first feeding is the most fun. They eat some and then lick it off of each other.
What Happens Next:
Next week will be another deworming cycle for these babies. This is to keep them nice and fat and healthy. During week 4 you will be emailed your puppy picking instructions to prepare you for your picking appointment. You will also receive directions to the farm. For those of you that cannot attend picking, we can send extra pictures, video or we can facetime the appointment. Unfortunately, Skype does not work due to our satellite internet. Week 5 will be our temperament testing and then we will have our picking!

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.

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.
