September 27, 2018
Right now we are preparing for another puppy picking weekend along with training our puppies that are preparing to go home.
We have our hands full of fluffiness and the one question I get all the time is, “How do you do it all?” Well. . .I don’t. My 16 year old has taken on the laundry as a way to earn a little extra cash. My girls are always lending a hand in the kitchen and well. . .the living room maintains a very “lived in” look.
As our family has grown, I have opened up to letting the kids and Phil help me as much as they can. We are incredibly scheduled during puppy season and everyone has a chore and those old enough to work have a position here at Lamgo Farms as their job.
Homeschooling is top priority right now to make sure we keep on track so we can take off a little during the Holiday season.
I’m so very thankful for all of our kiddos! For helping me with puppies, chores and for even babysitting while I fit in a few hours of hands on with the puppies myself. It truly is a family thing.
As many of you have noticed, my voice has not returned to normal since I became sick when my father in law passed away.
After visiting a specialist, they discovered a nodule on my vocal chords which they believe was caused by my illness and trauma to the vocal chords.
At this time, I have limited time to use my voice. I cannot yell, raise my voice, use a high pitch, sing or whisper. Along with that, I cannot have any caffeine or spicy foods. Yeah. . .whatever you just thought. . .my thoughts exactly.
So, as much as I want to return phone calls, I honestly cannot even if I find the time. I’ve tried to answer as many questions as possible in our FAQ section below. Please feel free to read through this to see if your questions can be answered. You can always email me if you need assistance.
I know we have recently had an increase in phone calls, email and messages. Thank you for your patience in waiting for your purchase contracts and returned emails. I treasure each of you and appreciate you inquiring about a Lamgo Farms puppy!
Now, before this update becomes two days late. . .let’s scroll on down to see just what is happening in each of your current and upcoming litters. . .
CURRENT and Next Season’s Breeding Schedule: (this is our Fall/Winter 2018 and Spring 2019 schedule)

Upcoming Litters. . .FAll 2018-19 Breeding Schedule
Parker/Squishy F1bb Pockets
Born August 16, 2018
2 girls 3 boys
Girl Collars: Purple, Light Pink
Boys Collars: Orange, Blue, Red
What’s Happening Now:
We are down to our final puppy picking this week! These babies are so fun. Now that they are officially 6 weeks old- they will have their first set of shots and another deworming. This is the week we will begin our crate training process. We will have 2 to one crate and 3 to the other. Once they are use to their crates as a group during nap time, we will move them to their own individual crates to work on crate and potty training. The next few weeks will be super busy filled with training.
What Happens Next:
Once the pockets are use to their crates, we will move Parker away from them. I allow our Pockets to be with momma longer than our larger sizes as they are particularly sensitive to stress and they need momma a little longer than most. The girls are enjoying play time with these babies and are helping me teach them their commands. It won’t be long and they will be ready to go home.
Each of you will receive a few emails. First, your invoices. If you have not yet sent your balance payment and need a link to pay online, let me know. Otherwise, you can still send it in the mail (choose 2 day to make sure it gets here on time). Those with balances paid will receive an invoice marked PAID. Next, you will receive your “Reading Material” if you have not yet already received it. Finally, I will email you your puppy pick up instructions to prepare you to pick up your puppy and hopefully answer any questions you may have.
Pick up is Friday, October 12th via appt.

- Desilets- Light Pink girl

What’s Happening Now?
Puppy picking is THIS weekend! Each of you should have received directions to the farm as well as puppy picking instructions. Temperament testing results will be emailed this evening. Let me know if you have any questions. Picking times are noted below! Please let me know if I have forgotten to note any long distance picks. Right now the puppies are working on socializing and playing. The big stuff happens after picking.
What Happens Next?
During week 6 we will give the puppies their first set of shots and another deworming. It is during week 6 that we will complete the weaning process and start our crate training. The puppies are placed in a crate 2 at a time during nap time until they are use to their new surroundings. Then they will be moved by themselves. This is when they’ll receive their scented item from you. Next we will work on getting them ready to go home!
Puppy picking day for Saturday, September 29. Times are listed by your names. Pick up is scheduled for Saturday, October 20th at 10 am. Alternative pick up days are the 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th via appt. We are unable to keep puppies past pick up dates this year due to the number of puppies we are caring for at this time.

Duke and Brie F1bb Mini Goldendoodles
Born August 21, 2018
3 boys 3 girls
Girl Collars: Lavender, Dark Pink, Bright Blue
Boy Collars: Black, Orange, Yellow
What’s Happening Now?
We had a fabulous puppy picking and everyone has their new forever homes! Now for the big work! The puppies all have their teeth now and are eating solid food which means. . .yep, it’s time to say goodbye to momma. I know, it seems hard, but these babies are ready to be on their own. We will wait until the weekend and then move Brie out of the nursery. We do this slowly over an entire week so they still get momma all night long and a little in the morning and afternoon. This way Brie’s milk can dry up slowly without causing her any discomfort and the puppies can get use to being alone without any stress.
What Happens Next?
This next week the puppies will receive their first set of shots. You will receive an email listing exactly which shots were given and when the next set is due. These puppies will be going home before 8 weeks old. As a larger mini, these babies will be ready to go. Next week is all about crate training and learning manners.
Each of you will receive a few emails. First, your invoices. You will receive an invoice marked PAID. Next, you will receive your “Reading Material” if you have not yet already received it. Finally, I will email you your puppy pick up instructions to prepare you to pick up your puppy and hopefully answer any questions you may have.
Pick up for this litter will be scheduled on Thursday the 11th and Friday, October 12th.

Jasmine “Red”/ Beans 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!
Jasmine is having her first insemination today. We will do a minimum of three inseminations. Once I have the final date, I’ll have an estimated due date. Right now, it looks like puppies would go home late January. 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.

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 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.

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.
