Welcome to this week’s update at Lamgo Farms! I am so excited to be back from a little break and so very grateful that you have stopped in to see just what is happening with our family, farm and furry friends this week.
Thank you all so much for the condolences as we lost my father in law and travelled for his funeral. We took an extra week and drove up into the mountains to rest and rejuvenate.
It looks like we made it home just in time to see Parker go into labor! Puppies are coming and I will have an update tomorrow letting you know how many and the specifics.
Maybelline, Charmin and Boston are all due soon! We also have a surprise litter this FALL! I will update you on that next week. These will be a Medium/Mini F1bb cream/white/peanut butter litter.
If you are on a list and have not yet received your purchase contract, please send me a message at 817-366-7995 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I realize that I completed several contracts and simply did not email them off yet. Thank you for your patience and help as I ease back into the daily busy.
One of the many busy things I’ve been doing this week has been working on updating our website. The Godaddy support can’t believe that my site has been on their old platform since 2009. Yep, I’m walking with dinosaurs people.
Simplifying our website and using this update as our constant communication and available puppies will help everyone keep track as to what we have now and coming up.
We are also excited that the new platform will allow me to make changes to our mobile site and include our very own APP so owners can simply sign documents online, print out purchase contracts and make payments without waiting for me to get my act together for the day! (or month)
As you can see, I have started our lists for our “Red” and “Sammy” already. Once we a few weeks into this season with new puppies, I’ll expand into our 2019 season so you can see what is available. However, deposits will not be accepted in those litters until January 1, 2019.
Well. . .let’s not get ahead of ourselves just yet. There is plenty going on right now! So, let’s scroll on down to see just what is happening in each of your litters this week. . .
Our friends who now own Cupcake, the chocolate Lab have new miniature F1 Labradoodles with available picking spots. Here is a link to more information. https://www.lamgofarms.com/Labradoodles.html

Maybelline / Paddington Mini Double Doodles
The Mini Double Doodle: F1 Mini Chocolate Labradoodle mixed with an F1b Mini Red Goldendoodle. Puppies will be a chocolate/red color with a wavy coat that matures between 25-35 lbs.
Maybelline’s due date is approaching and her tummy is absolutely huge. I can’t wait to see these puppies. Her estimated Due Date is August 19th. Puppies should go home around October 13. Of course, this all depends on exactly when she delivers. Labor can begin a week prior to the due date or a week later.

Charmin / Paddington F3 Mini Goldendoodles: Charmin is a Duke/Daphne F2b Mini Goldendoodle and Paddington is our Beasley/Bean F1b Goldendoodle. They will have another F3 mini litter like our Sammy/Paddington. Charmin has more apricot markings on her back and tail. Colors to be peanut butter, white and cream. Coats to be wavy. This is a first time breeding for Charmin. She is the same breeding as our Sammy. So you can look at past Sammy/Paddington puppies for comparison as to what the puppies will look like.
Charmin still has at least another week to go before we see the first signs if labor. But she is growing and her tummy is showing nice and big. Her Estimated due date is set at August 22nd. 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 email@example.com with “deposit” in the subject line. Note which litter and number on the picking spot you prefer that is listed as open. 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. There is a $5 PayPal processing fee that will be added to your total.
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 22, 18, 16, 14, 10, 2 and 16 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 1 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 a 10 am. 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. We use both Flight Nannies (for dogs that stand no taller than 11 inches) and pet cargo flights.
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? Sales Tax is included in the price.
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. Verification of service is required. 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. We have a medical form that needs to be completed by a doctor to qualify for service needs.
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. Puppies not fixed by the requested time frames will void the Health Warranty.
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.
