July 22, 2019
A HUGE welcome back to another update at Lamgo Farms! I apologize for the delay in this update but it’s oh so glad to be back.
Thank you all so much for the many prayers, messages and emails! My surgery went well and was a success. The L5, S1 disc ruptured and protruded 14 mm onto my sciatic nerve. The pain is gone, but I still do not have feeling in my left leg from the knee down. I was regaining some feeling in my toes, but right now that seems to have gone backwards and is still numb. We are praying for healing!
I am going to jump right into puppies for those waiting so patiently. We are doing our summer and fall puppy picking and pick up on the same day. Which means, at week 8, you will come for your one hour picking appointment and then take home your puppies on the same day.
We DO have puppies available in our Bella, Charmin and Maybelline litters. WE also have upcoming litters with picking spots available in our Brie and Sanjay F1bb litters as well. To learn more about these puppies, scroll down until you see the litter. To reserve a picking spot, you can simply complete the contact form provided at the end of each litter and select the “Add to Cart” button to place your deposit. You will receive a receipt through PayPal and then I will email you more information to welcome you!
Right now, we allow you to double list on 2 litters at a time. Of course, deposits are required for each picking spot, but if you move to just one litter, your deposit on the second litter will be applied to your balance.
Ok, back to my back. Haha! I am walking and able to hold the puppies. I am extremely thankful for the process of growing our puppy business along with our family through adoption these last three years.
It has allowed us to transfer all of the puppy duties from just me to the other adults in the family as well as adding to the chores of our teenage children. God knew long ago that He would remove me from these daily tasks and prepared us along the way. I cannot bend over, twist or turn at the waist. I can’t lift anything. Sadly, this includes my baby girl. I’m relying on others to assist me. And for some reason, I seem to drop everything these days.
God is touching on my control issues and refining me in the most painful of ways. In all, emotionally, I’m struggling. Struggling with the idea of an eight week recovery phase and the thought of another eight months of restrictive period. I have to supervise instead of just DO myself. And that is hard for me. For the few days I was away, my family rallied to cook, clean and socialize the puppies without me. And I must say, they have done an awesome job! The puppies are oh so personal and gentle and loving. God has gone before us through all of our tough days through adoption, through loss and now through physical pain.
We are praying for each of you and your puppies. I know so many of you are going though trials of your own right now. Just know we are here for you. I’ll be continuing our personal pains through healing on my personal blog at http://www.eggsinabasket.org for those wanting to follow. We’ll try to keep this more puppy driven! Now, drive on down to see just what is happening in each of your litters this week. . .

What’s Happening Now:
These puppies are growing and absolutely adorable! Right now their little personalities are really showing and we are starting to see just who they really are inside. They are playing with each other and toys more often but still taking quite a few naps during the day. We are now beginning the weaning process. The puppies are still nursing and being supplemented with their gruel. As soon as those teeth start erupting, we will introduce them to hard kibble. Puppies will be fully weaned by week 6.
What Happens Next:
During week 4, you will receive your directions to the farm as well as puppy picking instructions. For those on this list, please take a look at our picking/pick up times and make sure you make arrangements to be here.
Week four will show us more personalities as well as showing us the individual coat types for each puppy.
Puppy picking will be Saturday and Sunday, August 17 and 18th. Your Day and times are listed below. All times are Central Standard time.
Saturday, August 17

Maybelline’s Photo Gallery
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’s Happening Now:
The puppies are growing and doing beautifully. This litter is extra calm and super sweet. Everyone is really coming out of their shell and we are seeing those true personalities. They are playing with each other and toys more often but still taking quite a few naps during the day. We are now beginning the weaning process. The puppies are still nursing and being supplemented with their gruel. As soon as those teeth start erupting, we will introduce them to hard kibble. Puppies will be fully weaned by week 6.
What Happens Next:
Next week we will have our temperament testing. The results will be available to you at week 6. This will give you plenty of time to review along with video and pictures to assist you in your choice.
After receiving some feedback, we are going to have our picking/pick up on Saturday, August 24

Charmin’s Photo Gallery
What’s Happening Now:
Everyone’s eyes and ears are now open and the puppies are enjoying playing with each other. They still spend most of their day sleeping and nursing. But as we get into weeks 4 and 5, you will see more playing and a little less sleeping. Starting this week, the puppies will begin eating gruel. This is our own recipe of premium puppy food, nutritional supplement, milk replacer and warm water all blended into a nice oatmeal consistency. They love it!
What Happens Next:
Next week we will really start to see those little personalities emerge. During week 4, you all will receive directions to the farm as well as puppy picking instructions to prepare you to choose your puppy. Week 5 will be temperament testing and then we work on getting everyone ready to go home which included crate training and a few simple commands.
For all of our owners double listed- we are asking at this time for everyone to make the decision as to which litter you would like to remain so we can free up spots for those interested in a spot.
Picking and Pick up will be on the same day, August 31. Times listed below are all central standard time.
- Mize-12 noon
- Ratzlaff- 1pm
- Sawyer- double listed- 2pm
- Open– 3pm
- open- 4pm
Sanjay and Paddington F1bb Petite
These will be just slightly larger than our petite size. Sanjay is the daughter of Daphne and Burton. She is a light red f1b Micro Mini Goldendoodle. She is paired with our Paddington (son of Mrs. Beasley and Mr. Bean). These puppies will be all shades of red with maybe a lighter color passing down from Daphne. Coats are both curly and wavy. Mostly curly. The f1bb generation has the least amount of dander yielding the best coat for those with severe allergies and asthma. All of the personality of the larger goldendoodle packed in a little petite (forever looking puppy) package.
Jasmine/Beans Petite Red
Jasmine is expecting!
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.
- waitlist: Reyes
Brie and Duke F1bb Mini/Medium
We have allowed one more breeding for our Brie. She is expecting and due August 23. Puppies are expected to go home mid October. The F1bb generation is our most hypoallergenic and perfect for those with severe allergies and asthma. Both wavy and curly coats although the majority are curly.

Cream, white, apricot and peanut butter coloring. Wavy coats (one or two curly fleece possible). 25-35 lbs.

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? Complete the contact form located at the end of each litter. Then make your deposit payment by choosing the add to cart button. For litters not yet listed please 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.
