July 8, 2019
First, I’d like to thank you all for the many prayers, letters, messages and phone calls over the past 2 weeks. Your prayers and God have been pulling me through!
We have 3 sweet litters on the ground right now. Bella, Maybelline and Charmin. We do have picking spots available. Just scroll down until you see their names. We have a few litters coming up!
Having lots of puppies is kind of like having lots of children. We need structure, schedules, and organization to run smoothly. I’m so thankful for my husband and grown children who grew up watching me and helping me with the puppies so they could lend a hand when things got busy.
So, what’s been going on with me?
It’s now been three weeks since my back began to hurt. After 2 weeks of chiropractic appointments, physical therapy, steroids and pain meds, my Chiropractor ordered an MRI. I have a pretty high pain tolerance, so when I wasn’t getting any relief after 2 weeks, he told me it was time to see just what was happening in there.
The MRI showed that I have a ruptured disc in my L5 S1. It ruptured through the disc wall and is pouring out down my sciatic nerve. The pain is absolutely unbearable. I’ve delivered many babies and I can say that was a walk in the park compared to this. Although my left leg is in constant pain, it is also numb from he knee down.
The fast progression is what is bothering my doctors. I was scheduled to have surgery tomorrow, but between insurance paperwork and a low potassium blood test result, we are postponing until next Tuesday.
For those who picked up their puppies this weekend, I’m so sorry you had to see me at my weakest point. I couldn’t even stand long enough to go over puppy packets. Thank you all for being so gracious as I sat in the rocking chair for our conversations.
According to my surgeon- I will have immediate relief when I wake up from surgery. I am looking forward to that!
I’m very thankful that the puppies we have right now are tiny and sleeping and nursing most of the day. Today was the first time I could not go visit them. My husband has been absolutely wonderful. He has been holding each puppy, talking to them, socializing them and keeping the environment so clean that I could eat off the floor.
You will all notice the pictures are a little different from what I normally do. This is where the rubber meets the road folks. I have my way and Phil has his way. I’ve been doing things my way for 16 years. And now that God has literally put me on my back and into bed; I am realizing that I need to let go and embrace other people with other ideas.
I understand that my being down has not been in a vacuum. My having to lay in bed with pain medication has meant that my family has had to sacrifice to watch the babies, do chores and care for puppies. I do believe God has used this painful part of my life to teach my children more responsibility. . .to show my husband just how hard my job of being mommy really is and for instance today. . .to show everyone in our house that puppy pictures can be hard! Haha!
I would appreciate prayers for healing, wisdom for my surgeon, and patience for my family as I will have to recover by limiting just how much I can do physically.
Now, enough with that sad story. . .let’s scroll on down and see just what is happening in each of your litters. . .

Planned 2019 Breedings
(2020 is still being planned)
Mini Double Doodles
Maybelline delivered 5 boys and 3 girls on June 23. Their collar colors are. . .Males: Blue, red, green, yellow and white. Females: light blue, pink and purple.
Everyone is doing great and thriving! All eyes are now open!!! I can see the wavy in the coat appearing. And those faces! Right now the puppies are sleeping and nursing. By next week we will see them start to move around a little more. Week 3 is when we begin taking weekly video!
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.
Please reference your “puppies are here” email for information on picking/pick up dates and times.
- Cowder- darker coloring
- Sawyer 2
(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 delivered 7 boys and 5 girls on Sunday, June 24. These babies are beautiful! Right now they spend their time nursing and sleeping. But by next week – we will see them moving around in our first video as well as hearing them “talk” for the first time. I’m seeing quite a few peanut butter coloring, apricot and cream. Lighting when we take pictures will influence just how peanut butter they seem.
Please reference your “puppies are here” email for information on picking/pick up dates and times.
- Getterman, T
- Van Oost

F3 Mini Goldendoodles
Charmin delivered 2 girls and 5 boys on July 1st! All puppies are thriving and doing well. Charmin is our little “neat freak.” And we LOVE that about her. She keeps things clean around her! Such a sweet little mamma.
Right now the puppies are nursing and sleeping all day. Their eyes and ears are closed right now, but they will begin to open around day 14. Until then, they use their sense of smell to locate momma.
Please refer to your email “puppies are here” for information on picking/pick up dates and times.
- Sawyer- double listed
F1 Mini Goldendoodles
Snowflake is showing signs that she is entering her heat. I’ll keep you informed next week as to when breeding will start. These puppies are usually a peanut butter coloring and have wavy coats. They mature between 27-37 lbs.
- Getterman (double listed)
- Burton (double listed)
Past Snowflake/Burton Puppies:
Lilly and Beans’
F1b Mini Goldendoodles
We are still waiting on Lilly’s next cycle. Any day now! Colors are medium red with some white markings.
Jasmine/Beans Petite Red
Jasmine has now finished her inseminations and according to my initial exam, she is expecting! We will double check that in a few days as I’ve been down and unable to bend over to examine her. Right now, the estimated due date would be the beginning of August with puppies going home the end of September.
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.
- Scott- this spot may open up
- waitlist: Reyes
Jasmine aka “Red” / Beans F1bb Petite Goldendoodles
(Dec 2020/ Spring 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.

- Benavides (double listed)
- White, L
Sammy/Paddington F3 Mini Goldendoodles
Sammy will be completing her inseminations tomorrow. We will then wait another 2 weeks to conform pregnancy. She can be tricky this way as she is known to go into “false” heats. We will keep a close eye on her and let you all know if this is a successful breeding.

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.
