Welcome back to our weekly update at Lamgo Farms! Thank you for stopping by to visit to see just what is happening in our family, on our farm and just what is going on with our fluff balls!
Thank you all so much for understanding I needed some time away from the blog to work in the store, nurture my babies and heal a little from all of personal loss and family health issues his past year. Thank you so much for the continued prayers for my husband’s health, my parents, my kiddos and myself. We feel each and every one!
We’ve been enduring many stages all at one time. New babies, children growing up, children graduating, parents failing health and death and well, we discovered that we ourselves aren’t getting any younger. So, we are working overtime to complete that streamlining we’ve been working on with our new website and mobile app to keep us connected without missing a beat or missing out on life with our kiddos.
Life is so very short and fleeting. And lately, my sweet children have been listening to my promises of “just a minute” or “mommy just needs to make one more phone call” or “hang on, I’m texting someone right now” and I’ve been missing out on life with them. And they need me just as much as the puppies need me.
It is my passion to breed and raise these wonderful doodles of ours. It was the loss of one of our children that was the springboard to fluffy therapy and working so hard to create that same experience for others in need or just to have that life long friend.
I’m not anywhere near giving that part up or dialing it down to any degree. I just need to work smarter. We are so very blessed with the addition of our three little ones over the past three years. My heart has grown so much. But I have also learned that children with a hard start require much more than I could imagine.
So I will be delegating picture taking, emails and relying on our mobile app to keep you all connected to just what is happening at any given time in your litters, the ability to download forms, directions to the farm and even get information on local hotels, places to visit in town and even a link to order some of our favorite items to help you with your new puppy.
This update will continue with breaking news and the typical little update each week. But once the app and new website is complete- you will simply download it and rely on notifications to let you know what is happening and even take a peek at your puppy as it grows.
Puppies are due Friday! Of course, as with humans, this is an estimate. Sometimes our dogs are generous and deliver on my expected due date! Yes, it makes me look awesome. But most of the time, they are a tad early or a little bit late.
I’ll keep everyone updated on our Facebook page and through email when something happens.
We have a lot happening! Maybelline, Bella and Charmin have been bred! Yay! Before scrolling on down to see just what is happening in your litters, please join us in praying for each of these mama’s, lots of puppies and wisdom to raise each one for their new homes.
Love to you all and thank you!

Planned 2019 Breedings
(2020 is still being planned)
F2b Petite Goldendoodles
Boston is doing great! She has had her prenatal cut and she has been moved to the nursery. Right now we’re watching her for signs of impending labor. She has been nesting a bit. Now we just wait!
These are petites. They will be smaller than our miniatures but a tad larger than our pockets. I have set her due date at May 10 with puppies going home mid July. For those double listed- you can stay on both of your lists until puppies are a week old. Then we’ll ask you to choose your litter.
- Ratzlaff- (double listed)
- Rainwater (double listed)
- Harmon (double listed)
Past Puppy Pictures:
Mini Double Doodles
Maybelline is expecting and due June 22nd with puppies expected to go home around August 17th. These dates are an estimation that can change depending on exactly when puppies are born.
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.
- Cowder- darker coloring
(past Maybelline/Paddington puppy- black turning dark chocolate- wavy coat)
(past Maybelline/Paddington puppy- red with white markings- wavy coat)
F2b English Mini/Medium Goldendoodles
Bella has completed her inseminations. Now we wait another 3 weeks to confirm pregnancy.
- Getterman (double listed)
Past Puppy Pictures. . .
F3 Mini Goldendoodles
Charmin has just completed the breeding process. We will now wait another 3 weeks to confirm pregnancy. If expecting, she would be due July 7th with puppies expected to go home around September 1st. Charmin is one of our Duke and Daphne F2b Mini Goldendoodles and Paddington is one of our Mrs. Beasley/Mr. Bean F1b red Mini Goldendoodles. Together they create cream, apricot and white babies with soft cotton wavy coats.
- Yedlin- double listed
- Getterman (holding)
F1 Mini Goldendoodles
Next cycle should be in June 2019 (yes, this timeline has moved) with puppies due around August 2019 and going home around October. These puppies are usually a peanut butter coloring and have wavy coats. They mature between 27-37 lbs.

Past Snowflake/Burton Puppies:
Lilly and Beans’
F1b Mini Goldendoodles
Lilly will be breeding around June with puppies going home between October and November 2019. Colors are medium red with some white markings.
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. She is due to cycle at any time now. This is considered her “Summer” litter.
- waitlist: Reyes
Jasmine aka “Red” / Beans F1bb Petite Goldendoodles
(Fall 2019/Winter 2020)- This litter is still a 2019 breeding but puppies will go home in 2020. Just listing here so we don’t forge the “list.” We will know more on dates after her next cycle is complete. If she has plenty of puppies in her cycle prior to this, first available will be made to those on this list. At this time, I’m closing this list for further deposits until after our Spring breeding is complete.

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 email@example.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 for any reason. 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.

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

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.
