February 5, 2019
It’s been another busy few weeks where we really didn’t have much news, therefore last week’s update just didn’t happen. I’m so sorry to disappoint you! But we do have a lot to cover this week, so I’ll jump right in.
Our Lilly, Snowflake, and Brie litters are either completely full or almost full. Scroll down to see just what we have available. Poppins who is expecting our first Sheepadoodle litter does have picking spots available! Bella is expecting and does have a few open picking spots as well. I know a few of you were inquiring about just which litter would suit you best. It’s probably a good idea to get your name on a list and then we can move it if necessary. Once puppies start to be born, those open spots go away quickly.
We are preparing for puppies to come! I texted our Vet today to prepare for dew claws and even prepare for our vet check prior to puppies going home. Whelping areas are being prepped and supplies are ordered! We are getting ready for the busy to come!
Based on popular demand as well as the number of litters due all at once- we have decided to have our puppy picking and pick up on the same day for all litters due this Spring. This has been a very popular choice for our owners who live out of town. This way, they only have to make one trip- yet they can still choose in person!!! We will still have video and pictures along with temperament testing to assist you in your choice.
Everyone will have one hour for your picking/pick up appointment. Your choice for your puppy will be during the first 50 minutes followed by going home instructions. Each owner will receive a going home email outlining everything in your puppy packet as well as going home instructions to better prepare you to take home your puppy. Because of this, going home instructions should only take a few minutes. As always- I’ll update everyone on the list as puppies are chosen so you know just which puppies are remaining!
Valentine’s Day is almost here! For those interested. . .check out our store for pet attire for this special day! We also have our ChowChairs on sale! www.LamgoLand.com.
This week week will be a busy and heavy one. I know many of you follow my personal Facebook page and saw the home going of my Husband’s step mom, Saundra, who also was our kindergarten teacher. Thank you for all of the sweet notes! A few saw her name and inquired if I had passed. Nope. . .I’m very much here! My step mother in law’s name is Saundra Lamgo. Who is also an author. I’m Sandra. We get mixed up often. It’s been a very hard season for my husband who since July has lost his father, brother in law and now step mom. We certainly covet your prayers!
Up next. . .Besides having puppies due soon, we have our next visit to the cardiologist for our son Nathan. I know we have many who prayed for him after he was born and continue to do so. Thank you! Nathan was born not breathing and was diagnosed with HIE. Basically, he had a loss of oxygen to the brain for a long period of time. He is our little miracle!
Nate also has fenestrated Atrial Septal Defect. Which means, he has multiple holes in his heart that look much like a piece of lace. Each echocardiogram, I have hope that the Lord will close these holes. And He has closed several. But we still have some left and if they do not close soon, Nathan will require surgery. So, please keep us in your prayers next Wednesday as we travel for another echocardiogram to see just what’s going on.
With all of our special kiddos with special abilities. . .we have found that the kids need our puppies just as much as the puppies need our kids. The kids socialize the puppies and the puppies offer a certain kind of therapy we desperately need at this time. God works in so many ways. And I don’t understand most of it. But I know it’s all good. Oh, so good!
Now, before we get too off the main topic of the hour. . .let’s scroll down and check out each of your litters. . .
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.
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. This is a standard size. We do plan to downsize in the future- but these puppies should mature between 50-65 lbs. With Banks, our Old English Sheepdog being the sire- we do expect more wavy coats vs curly.
Next week Poppins will be moved to the nursery to get familiar with her whelping box. For our first time momma’s it helps for them to start nesting and get comfortable with the area. Our veteran momma’s know what’s coming. They know we’ll move them to a quiet location that is safe and secure. They know I’ll be with them during labor and delivery and will help them in the clean up process. They know that home made chicken noodle soup is coming after delivery. They know that nice clean and soft bedding follows the birth and that hourly check ups from me for those first few days is the normal. Our momma’s labor fairly easily as they are relaxed and have “been there and done that.” First time momma’s need extra assurance that I’m with them- that even though those instincts do kick in- there are still some first time lessons to learn for the both of us. I don’t know “their” usual and they don’t know yet what’s coming from me. So we learn about each other during the process. I can’t wait to see these babies!

F1 Mini Goldendoodles
(Litter all RESERVED!)
Snowflake’s pregnancy has been confirmed. Puppies should go home around mid to late April with a due date of February 18th. These puppies are usually a peanut butter coloring and have wavy coats. They mature between 27-37 lbs.
Snowflake is doing great! She’s starting to slow down a bit but not enough to stay out of the mud. Yep, just 24 hrs after her grooming, she decided to sprawl out in the mud. Back to the bath we go. Her belly is getting large! So, I’m very hopeful for a large litter as usual. If we are able to fit it in- we will take her in for a prenatal X-ray to count puppies. If she is too close to delivery- we’ll wait. Snowflake has always had 9 or 10 puppies per litter.
- Williams (double listed)
- waitlist: Wattelet (female only)

Lilly and Beans
F1b Mini Goldendoodles
(Litter RESERVED!- Waitlist only at this time)
Lilly is most definitely expecting!!! Yay! Congratulations! Her estimated due date is March 2nd! Our toddlers, Ava and Nathan’s birthday also!!! 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)
Lilly is doing great! She is clearly responding to her increase in hormones as she’s becoming my shadow. She follows me everywhere. Her belly is already growing large so I can’t wait to see just how many she has for us.

Brie and Duke F1bb Mini Goldendoodles
Brie and Duke have bred and pregnancy has been confirmed. Puppies are due February 19 with puppies going home mid to late April. These puppies are cream, apricot and peanut butter color with mostly curly and some wavy coats. 30-45 lbs. Average is below 40 lbs. Brie is doing great and is as active as ever. I will not be taking any more than 6 deposits for this litter (I know she’s had as many as 11 before) since she is near retirement and her last litter was low at just 6 puppies. If she has more. . .we’ll have more openings!

Planned Spring 2019 Breeding
Jasmine/Beans Petite Red
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. 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.
Jasmine had a singleton for her last litter. So we are transferring many from that list onto this new one and any open spots will be reserved for her next breeding. Not to worry- she will still have a late FALL cycle.

Mini Double Doodles
Expected to breed in August 2019. A Double doodle is the cross between our mini Chocolate Labradoodle and our Red Mini Goldendoodle. The coat is thinner and tends to have a cotton or wire texture. Puppies tend to have more of a Labradoodle coat.

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.

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.
