January 16, 2019
I’ll start with the obvious. I was so late with last week’s update, that we literally just skipped it. Video and pictures still went up of little Milo; but that did give me a little more time to check our expectant mama’s to confirm pregnancy. It looks like we have a lot of babies on their way in February!
We don’t have a busy season without planning. Actually, a lot of planning goes into a busy season. And with each new busy season- lessons are learned and we tweak the plan a little more to make the next time a little better for everyone.
This next time around we will be on a little tighter schedule as well as considering the picking/pick up on the same day to allow all owners the opportunity to choose their puppy in person and then take them home the same day. This seems to work well for those who live out of state or far away so they don’t have to make the trip twice or choose via video.
We’ll put each litter to a vote to see which way we will go once puppies are born. Feel free to chime in and give me your opinions if you have one about the matter. I’d love to hear what you all think!
As far as the tighter ship goes. We now have 2 adult children and a 16 (almost 17) and 14 (almost 15) yr old that will be grateful to earn a little by lending a helping hand this season. This can be watching the babies while I visit with puppies. Or helping with the adult dogs; or lend a hand to the morning cleanup and feeding routines with the puppies. Making sure everyone helps out that wants to without a few of us becoming exhausted is a big part of the tightening the schedule.
I know many were waiting to see if we had confirmed pregnancies prior to reserving a spot. Those will be filling up here pretty quickly. Scroll down to the FAQ section to see how to reserve a picking spot and then feel free to message me if you have any questions. Once a litter is born- my main communication with owners will be through this update under each litter’s section. Emails regarding directions, puppy picking instructions, pick up instructions, reading material, shot information, suggested supplies, health warranty questions, puppy packet information and temperament testing results- will all be emailed and at specific times to make sure you have plenty of time to plan. We try hard to think of what is coming up so you know what to do next.
Now, let’s not waste any more time. . .scroll on down to see just what is happening in each of your litters this week!
2019 Breeding Schedule
Here is what we have now and have planned: scroll down to the FAQ section to see how to place a deposit, pricing and to answer many questions.
Jasmine “Red”/ Beans F1bb Petite Goldendoodle Litter. Jasmine is a Beasley/Burton Petite Goldendoodle. Beans is a dark red Miniature Poodle. These will be mostly wavy and a few curly. Although this is still classified (as of now) as an F1bb generation- it differs from our other F1bb litters in that the sire is a poodle in this litter. Our other F1bb litters have the Dam as the poodle. I’m sure I’ll come up with another label for this breeding, but for now, I’m leaving it as the F1bb. These petite puppies mature between 18-24 lbs. All shades of red. This is a first breeding therefore we do not have past puppy pictures for this litter.
Milo is doing great and is oh so cute! He is a natural sweetie. This little guy is gonna be hard to let go. But we know his family and they are awesome!
Right now Milo is just being a puppy and being socialized by the family. He doesn’t know any tricks yet. But we’ll be working on that. Crate training won’t start until the middle of week 6 and we will start by simply letting him play in and out of the crate with the door open. Once he learns this is his resting spot, then we’ll let the door close. Next week is also the first round of shots and another deworming. As you can see, his little coat gets longer and more fluffy each week!
Jasmine has been 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.
Poppins and Banks
F1 Standard Sheepadoodles
This is a first breeding for this litter so no past puppy pictures. Poppins is a standard AKC registered Black and White Tuxedo Poodle and Banks is an AKC Registered Old English Sheep Dog. Poppins is beyond smart and sweet and Banks is just about the best dog we have ever had. He is super sweet to our toddlers and baby and is gentle and kind. I can’t wait to see their puppies!
Poppins’ pregnancy has been confirmed! She is due February 24. Puppies should go home around late April. Colors should be black and white, however, with the first generation, puppies will most likely fade to a gray as they mature. We won’t know how much they will fade until we follow this first litter. Poppins’ black coloring could influence the fading gene.

Lilly and Beans
F1b Mini Goldendoodles
Lilly has just completed all inseminations. We will now wait another week to confirm pregnancy- however, her uterus is already enlarged at this time. So, I’m fairly positive she is expecting, but I like to wait another week before palpating her tummy to feel for little babies. Estimated time to go home will be the last week of April or early May.
Lilly is an F1 Medium Dark Apricot Goldendoodle and Beans is a dark red Miniature Poodle. Puppies in this litter are expected to mature between 30-40 lbs. Based on other litters we have matched together, I expect Peanut butter coloring and all shades of red with more wavy than curly coats. (first time breeding- no past puppy pictures)

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.

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.
