Weekly Update March 29, 2019

 

March 29, 2019

Welcome to another update at Lamgo Farms!  I’m happy you’ve taken the time to visit and see just what is happening in our lives, with our littles and especially with our furry loved ones.

I can’t believe how fast our puppies are growing.  I think as you get older, time literally speeds up on you.  Just yesterday I could climb in and out of whelping boxes without issue.  Now my 3 yr old daughter makes grunting noises when she stands up from a seated position because that’s what she hears from me!  My little old girly girl.

For those of you just joining us and those who have deposits on puppies not yet born- hang in there and thank you for your patience!  I’m kind of triaging communication based on litters going home and getting their emails and paperwork together so we can prepare owners to take home these little fluffies.  I’ll be emailing in the order litters are to be bred.  Next up. . .Lina and Boston owners!

Well, today is a super special day at Lamgo Farms.  Our son Matthew is turning 17 years old today!  It’s a special birthday as some of you who have been around for a while know.  Matt spent 2017 and 18 suffering from blindness, vertigo, and extreme head pain as well as edema in his leg.

After many months of tests and hospitalizations and being told to expect a brain tumor. . .Matt is doing well!  No brain tumor! He was diagnosed with something I handed down to him called Hemiplegic and complex migraines.  They mimic a stroke and can be quite scary.  But Matt has been a wonderful trooper and now on medication- he knows how to manage them.  What an answer to prayer!

Another thing that makes his birthday so special is that after we had Matt, we began packing up our lives in Colorado and moved here where we started Lamgo Farms.  It’s been that long!

So thank you all who have been on this amazing journey with us!  I can remember when there were just three of us Goldendoodle breeders here.  Now, I can’t even tell you how many there are as new ones are popping up every few months.  We know you have a choice between many breeders and we are so very thankful you’ve chosen us!

We are honored and pray we can serve you well and help you take home that perfect puppy of your dreams!  Now, let’s not fall asleep just yet. . .scroll on down to see just what is happening in each of your litters.  For those with questions. . .scroll on down past the litters to the FAQ section to find out the process of getting a puppy as well as pricing and the specifics.


 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 

 

Poppins’ Photo Gallery

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.  We estimate these puppies to mature between 55-65 lbs.

Poppins delivered 3 girls and 4 boys on Friday, February 22nd.  All puppies are doing great!  We have 3 “brindle” and white and 4 black and white.  Keep in mind that most Old English Sheep Dogs do turn gray, therefore, the black and whites will most likely turn gray and white.  With Poppins being a black and white tuxedo- some black coats could stay black.  Time will tell. The girls’ collar colors are Bright blue (turquoise), Light Pink and Purple.  The boys are Dark Blue, Lime Green, Red and Burgundy.

What’s Happening Now:

Oh these little Panda Bears!  They have stolen my heart.  Right now they have successfully weaned from Poppins and are doing life together as siblings.  They are now eating solid food three times a day.  Socializing twice a day and learning to sleep a little longer at night.  Although they really do like the party night life right now.  Each of you should have received directions to the farm as well as puppy picking instructions.  Temperament testing for this litter is tomorrow.  Results will be emailed Monday.

What Happens Next:

Starting this next week, the puppies will begin crate training during nap time.  Each will have a buddy or two and they will spend about an hour in their crates during their afternoon nap.  We will increase this to two naps and then once they are comfortable in this new environment, we will move them by themselves.  Week 6 is also when we give the first set of shots.  I will be emailing a little more about shots in your pick up instructions so you can make your first vet appointment and give the all of the necessary information to schedule.  Puppies will need their next set of shots at week 9.

Puppy Picking/Pick up Schedule:  We are having our picking and pick up on the same day this season.  We are scheduling on Friday, April 19th.

  1. Eavenson- 10 am- female preference

English Golden Sheepies

Picking spots available!

Golden Sheepie Photo Gallery

  English Golden Sheepies are a mixture of our AKC Registered English Creme Golden Retriever Dam and our AKC Registered Old English Sheep Dog Sire.  This is a first litter, so we do not have past puppy pictures, but a few links to a few Instagram pages for you to see what one of these beauties looks like fully mature.

They are black and white and will have the coat of a Sheepdog with the facial features of a retriever.  Old English Sheep dogs shed lightly when brushed well.  Brushing limits shedding greatly.  The Retriever part will shed a lot.  We have learned that brushing this particular mix does help with shedding greatly.  But bear in mind, there will be a certain amount of shedding.

Golden Sheepies are know to be incredibly docile, brilliant, obedient, easy to train, laid back with a longevity of approximately 18 years.

Lamgo Farms is keeping the first pick of the litter.  For pricing, please scroll to the FAQ section.

The girls’ collar colors are: Bright Blue, Light Pink, Purple, White, and Burgundy.  The boy’s collar colors are lime green and red.

Puppies will go home Friday, April 12th. 

What’s Happening Now:

I am so excited about these babies and these beautiful coats.  I’ve never seen anything like it.  Fluffy and soft and long and not a bit of shedding!  They are super sweet and calm.  My dream puppies.  Right now they have successfully weaned from Poppins and are doing life together as siblings.  They are now eating solid food three times a day.  Socializing twice a day and learning to sleep a little longer at night.  Although they really do like the party night life right now.  Each of you should have received directions to the farm as well as puppy picking instructions.  Temperament testing for this litter was done this week. Results will be emailed Monday.

What Happens Next:

Starting this next week, the puppies will begin crate training during nap time.  Each will have a buddy or two and they will spend about an hour in their crates during their afternoon nap.  We will increase this to two naps and then once they are comfortable in this new environment, we will move them by themselves.  Week 6 is also when we give the first set of shots.  I will be emailing a little more about shots in your pick up instructions so you can make your first vet appointment and give the all of the necessary information to schedule.  Puppies will need their next set of shots at week 9.

The girls’ collar colors are purple and light pink.  The light pink almost looks white in pictures.  The boys’ collar colors are yellow, dark blue, red and green.

What’s Happening Now:

Time is moving right along and very fast if you ask me.  These sweeties are growing and the typical Brie/Duke babies.  Very bright and sweet.  Right now they have successfully weaned from Poppins and are doing life together as siblings.  They are now eating solid food three times a day.  Socializing twice a day and learning to sleep a little longer at night.  Although they really do like the party night life right now.  Each of you should have received directions to the farm as well as puppy picking instructions.  Temperament testing for this litter was Wednesday.  Results were just emailed.  Please let me know if you have any questions.

What Happens Next:

Starting this next week, the puppies will begin crate training during nap time.  Each will have a buddy or two and they will spend about an hour in their crates during their afternoon nap.  We will increase this to two naps and then once they are comfortable in this new environment, we will move them by themselves.  Week 6 is also when we give the first set of shots.  I will be emailing a little more about shots in your pick up instructions so you can make your first vet appointment and give the all of the necessary information to schedule.  Puppies will need their next set of shots at week 9.

Lilly and Beans

F1b Mini Goldendoodles

Lilly’s Photo Gallery

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’s Happening Now:

It’s week 4!  These little ones are coming out of their shells and showing us those little personalities.  They are super sweet and playful now.  Right now they are in the weaning process and are only nursing twice a day.  They are spending their nights just the three of them.  We introduced them to hard kibble now that they are getting teeth and they are loving it.  We’re seeing some playing with toys and each other.  We are continuing socializing three times a day with lots of cuddles.

What Happens Next:

Week 5 is another big one with temperament testing.  We will email the results so that along with video and pictures you can start to pick out your favorites.  Each of you should have received directions to the farm and puppy picking instructions.  More instructions for pick up along with vaccination information and training reading material will be on it’s way during week 6.

Puppy Picking/Pick up:  April 20 and 27th.

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.

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 pet cargo 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.  We can fly during the off season with Flight Nannies only.

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.

Goldendoodles (Standard, Medium and miniature): $1,950 

Goldendoodles (Petite): $2,100

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.
