Weekly Update September 19, 2018

 

September 19, 2018

Welcome to another update at Lamgo Farms!  We are so excited you’ve found your way here to find out just what is happening in our neck of the woods.

Thank you all so so much for the sweet cards, messages, texts and emails welcoming home our little Sara.  We are in LOVE!  She is super sweet and just fits in perfectly with the family already.

I’m not getting much sleep these days. . .so I’m asking for a thick layer of grace for this week’s update.  As I type this, I’m wearing Sara on my chest with a Moby wrap.  Ava is sleeping next to me and I just laid Nathan back down for the 6th time tonight.  It’s almost 3 am.  LOL!

It is possible that I missed a name, attached the wrong photo gallery or somewhere in the middle of it all, I may have included the lyrics to JJ Heller’s “The boat song.”  That’s Nathan’s go to song when we rock him to sleep.

The hope I hold on to tightly when we have a struggling toddler, baby or newborn who does not sleep along with crate training puppies, is that this is all temporary.  Yes, we do have puppies off and on throughout the year.  But the season is eight weeks long.  And I know at the end of that time frame. . .I’ll get a good nap before we start all over again.

I also know that one day the babies will grow out of this and sleep.  So, thank you all for bearing with me as I navigate new baby life along with new puppy life.

A few things I’ve learned over the past 22 years of parenting and 15 years of breeding puppies:

*Toddlers and puppies are very much alike.  They both will get into anything you leave out within reach, chew on cords of any kind; and take your shoes and hide them so you end up wearing two right shoes with one being a high heel and the other being a tennis shoe.  They love a good pair of glasses (seriously. . .it’s a thing), but only if they are prescription, expensive or hard to replace.  They both like to chew on dog toys when teething; and they both like to eat cat food even though they have their own food.   They will ultimately have some kind of poo accident on the carpet- just cry out to the Lord and clean it up. . .it will pass. They both like plastic cups, bubble wrap, bubbles floating in the air, Styrofoam, socks and sleeping on nice soft blankets.  They both will also try to escape any confined area and whine until you give in. . .because those eyes will melt you and you know it.  So really folks. . .I’m in the same boat with you.  Which means. . .I’m happy to help if you have any questions or need a support system when you get your little fur ball home.  Just keep in mind. . .every stage will pass- so enjoy the moment, the chaos, the cuteness.  And when you’re ready to do it again. . .I’ll be here!

Before I go on to sing a stanza of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. . .I’ll quit while I’m ahead but will encourage you to scroll down to see just what is going on in each of your litters.  We have NEWS for Sammy and Jasmine’s litters!!!!

P.S.  Thanks for putting up with me these past few weeks. . .

What’s Happening Now:

Well, it’s here!  Puppy picking starts later today (Thursday) with our first pick of the litter.  Both girls will be chosen in the first two picks.  I’ll keep you all updated as to who goes first and if there are any surprises.  This first pick is a little early, so temperament testing will be done tomorrow with results available on Friday.  I’ll be able to talk a little about the results with the first pick tomorrow.  Results will be emailed prior to picking next week for the remaining owners.  The puppies are doing great!  Sometimes they can be a little shy to new people, but they are super young and little.  They are use to my husband and tall boys.  So if you are a big tall guy. . .they’ll be use to you.  Haha!

What Happens Next:

After picking is complete, I’ll be emailing your pick up information as well as reading material with training tips.  This will also include information on food, vet visits, shots, etc.

Puppy Picking is spread out over a few days.  Scroll down to the picking list to find your day and time.  For those unable to attend, we can do a long distance pick with FaceTime or video.

The puppies are doing great!  They are super social and walking and talking!  Any of Duke’s down line is automatically super smart and usually talks early.  Right now the puppies are starting their gruel or first food.  This is the beginning of the weaning process.  We mix our premium puppy food, nutritional supplement, puppy milk replacer, and warm water.  They love it!

What Happens Next?

This weekend, I will be emailing you directions to the farm and your puppy picking instructions.  These should answer most of your questions about what happens on picking day and how to prepare.  During week 5, we will have our temperament testing and will email the results prior to your picking.  Once picking is over, you will receive your emails with reading and training material as well as information on food, supplies, vet visits and shots.

What’s Happening Now?

Brie’s babies are doing awesome!  Our picking process is already this Saturday.  I know we are picking a little early with this litter.  However, they are our mini size and are large enough to handle all of the attention and handling during picking day.  And with everyone delivering at the same time, this helps us fit all of our owners in on a weekend.

Each of you should have received your directions and puppy picking instructions in an email.  Please text me at 817-366-7995 if you did not receive your email.  Also- anyone who has not yet receive a purchase contract, give me a shout out and I’ll send that right over.

The babies are doing great!  They are actually starting on some hard kibble along with their gruel.  Once those teeth are fully in- they will have hard kibble only.

What Happens Next?

Temperament testing was done today and will be emailed late Thursday.  I’m sorry- it was just impossible to get it out to you today.  But you will have it to look over for a few days before picking.  After your puppy is chosen- I will email reading and training material as well as puppy pick up instructions to help you prepare to take your puppy home.  Information such as food, supplies, vet visits and shots will be included in those emails.

Times are according to picking spots.  Pick up for this litter will be scheduled on Friday, October 12th.  For those needing to pick up on the weekend, please email me.

Girl Collar: Dark Pink

Boy Collars: Black, Red, Orange, Yellow, Blue, Green

What is Happening Now?

What a week it has been!  Well, each of you should have received an email just updating you on the status of the little red collar boy.  So far he is healthy, energetic, nursing and even playing.  But he is super tiny.  He is a small pocket size.  I have spoken with the final pick of the litter and we have double listed her on 2 other litters just in case this little guy needs special care.  We should have a good assessment on him prior to picking.  If he is in perfect health and just tiny- you are free to choose him.  But if the vet and I do not believe that he is healthy- we will remove him from the picking process.  I’ll keep you all informed.  Until then. . .please pray for him!  God can do this!

We uploaded our first video this week and we should see some actual “action” next week.  The puppies have received their first deworming and will begin “gruel” next week.  Gruel is their first food that consists of our premium puppy food, nutritional supplement, puppy milk replacer and warm water all blended to an oatmeal consistency.  They LOVE it!  This week is all about socializing and learning to play.

What Happens Next?

Week 4 is much like week 3 with a little more energy and playfulness.  I will be emailing you during week 4.  You will receive your directions to the farm and puppy picking instructions to help you prepare for your visit or your long distance picking appointment.  Most of your questions will be answered in that email.  Week 5 will be our temperament testing and then we’ll have our picking!  After picking I’ll be emailing you more reading material, training material and all of your information on food, vet visits, shots, etc.

Puppy picking for this litter for Saturday, October 6, 2018.  Picking times are listed next to your names.  IF you cannot attend your picking in person, we can schedule a long distance pick via FaceTime or extra video.

These super sweet and soft babies are doing awesome!  They have the most loving and gentle temperaments already.  I cannot wait for them to grow a bit more for you to see them.  We uploaded our first video this week and we should see some actual “action” next week.  The puppies have received their first deworming and will begin “gruel” next week.  Gruel is their first food that consists of our premium puppy food, nutritional supplement, puppy milk replacer and warm water all blended to an oatmeal consistency.  They LOVE it!  This week is all about socializing and learning to play.

Jasmine “Red” F2b Petite Goldendoodle Litter.  Jasmine is a Beasley/Burton Petite Goldendoodle.  These will be mostly wavy and a few curly.  All shades of red.   LITTER FULL!  WAITLIST ONLY!

ANNOUNCEMENT:

Jasmine is now FINALLY at the very beginning of her cycle! (And all of God’s people said, “AMEN!” We will wait until just before ovulation to inseminate.  Jasmine is being paired with our new little “Beans.”  Not to be confused with our retired, Mr. Bean.  Beans is a miniature dark red poodle.  These will make the puppies an F1b generation.  Because Jasmine is a wavy coat- we are using Beans to make sure we have the desired coats and colors. We do expect mostly wavy coats in this breeding.  I’m so excited to see these puppies!  Both Jasmine aka “Red” and Beans are dark reds.  Once we start inseminations, I will be able to give you an estimated due date.  I’ll grab some pictures of Beans for you for next week.

FAQ:

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 goldendoodles@lamgofarms.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.

***To better serve each of our clients as well as my family, I have limited my emailing and online time to Tuesday’s.  If you need to reach me and cannot get a returned call. . .simply text me at the number below.  It is much easier to text or email during homeschooling hours.
As always, please feel free to email or call/text (817-366-7995) if you have any questions or concerns.
