May 16, 2019
First things first. I know we usually have our update on Wednesday’s; but since we are transitioning to a new schedule with the babies and since our Boston litter was born on the weekend, my new day to update will be on Fridays!
We have had a great busy week! Although it is scheduled to rain and storm again this weekend, we are happy to have had some dry days for both the kiddos and dogs to play outside. It has literally been standing water until the past two days.
This week was a special one for us. My husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary. My fading memory is evidence that it’s been that long, while my emotions feel like we just got hitched. I honestly can’t believe it’s been that long. So much has happened and as I look at old wedding pictures I wish my current self could whisper to that young couple and say, “you will go through and endure enormous pain, but hold on tight, because you will also get to know life’s greatest joys.” It’s hard to remember a life without this great guy of mine.
God has held us close all of these years. The stats: 25 years, 10 children, 2 in Heaven, 5 boys, 5 girls. 16 years in Texas. Too many to count cows, horses, miniature horses, dogs, cats, ducks and chickens. Maybe one day I can add a pig or two. (just in case the hubs ever reads this haha!)
I’m still updating lists from texts, emails and new inquiries. Hopefully, most of you are in your correct spots this week!
We are enjoying our new Boston puppies and are excited to be expecting more litters this summer. Yay! Our 2020 Boston list already has some names on it. For those of you that are fond of the red teddy bears. . .we will have new litters coming up that should give us more mini, petite and pocket red litters. After that, we will have about a year wait for red teddybears. Unfortunately, we will not be doing any red standard goldendoodle litters. Dark Red Irish Doodles are on the radar, but we must wait a few years before breeding will begin.
You’ll see at the end of all of our litters listed just how we are transitioning from our retiring moms to our new younger moms. We still have these great lines as we have held back sons and daughters from our famous breeders to keep those beautiful coats and personalities going.
I’m so excited to see just what comes out of these new breedings! Well, enough about that for now. . .let’s move 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.
Planned 2019 Breedings
(2020 is still being planned)
F2b Petite Goldendoodles
Boston delivered 2 girls and 3 boys on Saturday, May 11th
These are petites. They will be smaller than our miniatures but a tad larger than our pockets. 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.
What’s Happening Now:
Boston and puppies are doing great! The vet visited on Monday and removed their dew claws. All are fat and healthy. The 2 girls seem to have more of a curly coat. The very dark red is a wavy coat along with one other male. The third male has a curly coat.
Puppies will be going home Saturday, July 6th. At this time, we are getting feedback with the majority of preferences for picking at week 6 and picking up at week 8 (July 6th). I’m just waiting for another opinion and then we’ll make our decision. If we did picking at week 6, it would be on Saturday, June 22nd.
- (Waiting to hear back on this pick)
- Hardoin- female preference
- Yedlin (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)

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 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 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 8 children. Ages 22, 18, 17, 15, 11, 3, 2 and 8 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.

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.
