August 12, 2019
Welcome back to another week’s update at Lamgo Farms! I’m so glad you’ve found your way to visit us and to see just what is happening with our puppies, pets and all the people we have squeezed into this 3 bathroom house.
I know this update is once again falling a little later than I’d like, but we have our large Bella litter going home this coming weekend and we are preparing puppies, owners and making sure everyone has what they need to make their way to come and choose their puppies!
It’s such an exciting time during the entire puppy process, but believe it or not, I still get nervous. We pray over each of these puppies long before birth and our goal is for everyone to take home the puppy of their dreams and ask God to bless you all.
So, for now, we have our Bella puppies going home this weekend and Maybelline’s puppies on the 23rd and 24th followed by Charmin’s on the 31st of August. It’s all happening so fast. I know it seems like a long time for you- but for us- we are just trying to get it all done in a short amount of time.
If you’ve followed us for any length of time, you all know that I am a Colorado gal just trying to make it from one air conditioned environment to another during these hot Texas summers. Actually, we have been very fortunate to have had a mild summer so far. But the triple digits have hit us and the doodles, kiddos and I are literally just stripping down to the minimum and sometimes laying on the cold tile in the kitchen.
Surprisingly, quite a few of our breeding stock come from cooler climates like myself. So we get each other. Haha!
I learned a huge lesson this week while working too much out in the 100’s and collapsed. A little to heat stroke, a little to low potassium and a lot due to stress. So, I apologize for the delay here and for some missed texts. I literally went to bed around lunch time on Saturday and woke up Sunday. Lesson learned. . .the dogs and I went out as the sun was going down tonight. . .perfection.
This is what makes the mini, petite and pocket sizes so nice. They can hang out in the house during this horrible heat and still get plenty of exercise without knocking you or your household belongings down.
We have some new breedings happening now and will have our 2020 schedule out in September for those wanting to prepare for next year.
Make sure you scroll down to see if we have any openings for our current or upcoming litters. . .to see just what’s happening with your litter and to see just how cute these babies are right now! It’s major cuteness overload!
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 English Mini/Medium Goldendoodles
What’s Happening Now:
Ok, it’s been quite the week. The babies have grown into those cute personalities and we have had both elation and heart ache in one week. We lost our little orange boy and are heart broken. Although we are sad for our owners, we put so much time and love and energy into each puppy- that even at just 6 weeks old, we have bonded and a loss is just that. . .a loss. Thank you all for the sweet words. Sometimes, even with all efforts- things like this especially in such a large litter just happen. WE are so excited that little blue and brown are doing great! Blue is back to himself and brown is keeping us on our toes as we keep watch since he is so little. A little dehydration can turn things fast.
Although Phil is going through so much right now, he is so dedicated and loving to these puppies, I just cry to see them together. Phil is my massive 6’7″ husband who is having to break from being a cowboy while we get his health back. We are seeing a specialist tomorrow to discuss injections for his spine to ease his pain as well as find out a little more about the mass found on his brain stem.
Phil is handling this much better than I ever could. He has poured himself into these babies and doesn’t take one moment to even consider his issues. Thank you all so much for praying for him. Please continue. I know God can take this and do great things! I’m so excited for our owners for this season. Phil spends about 5 hours in the morning with the puppies and then is back at it in the evening. At times I’m a little jealous.
Right now I am taking Wednesday off from the phone and internet as we celebrate Phil’s 46th birthday! We have a lot to celebrate and a lot to be thankful for this year. We just want to spend the day loving on him and letting everything else be put on hold. Thank you so much for understanding.
You all should have received directions, picking instructions, and now reading material. You will see our “Crate Training Procedures” as one of the attachments. This is the important one. I will also have this printed out for you in your packet. Refer to your Suggested supply list (let me know if you don’t have one) to have your area all ready for your puppy.
You still have one more email coming your way and that is your pick up instructions. I’ll have the contents of your puppy packet and pedigree and anything you need to travel with your puppy in that attachment.
Your reading material email had the basics of what you need to have before you bring home baby.
For those ordering custom elevated feeders from our store at LamgoLand.com. . .please remember we can have your orders ready (as long as you know the name of your puppy already) to go home with you at pick up. If you don’t know the gender, therefore the name to customize- we can still ship your elevated feeder. Our Petite size doodle would use the medium size and our medium and large doodles would use the large feeders.
What Happens Next:
Puppies are crate training and now in a crate by themselves. Everyone is adjusting nicely. The vet has already had her visit with them and now we just polish up some commands, prepare your packets and then they are ready to meet you all!
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
1. Getterman- 10am- choosing sometime mid week
4. Van Oost-1pm

Past Puppy Pictures. . .
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.
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:
Temperament testing results were emailed. If you haven’t received yours, check your bulk mail or let me know and I’ll re-send. At this time, you should have received your directions, picking instructions and a few of you may have already received your reading material. This is our training info, your necessary supplies to prepare for your puppy to go home, vaccinations given so far and when to schedule your vet appointment along with when your next set of shots is due, etc.
Puppies received their first set of shots and are doing great. They are now with their buddy in their crate and next week they will have their own crate to prepare to go home.
Next up besides your reading material is your puppy pick up email with the contents of your puppy packet and information about taking home your puppy.
FYI: puppy food, treats, potty training bells, nutritional supplement, toys, records and your travel crate are all part of your packet.
Invoices, Directions to the Farm and Puppy instructions have been sent. Please look them over to make sure they are accurate or let me know if you did not receive yours. You do not need a PayPal account to pay. You can also choose to pay via Venmo (my username is attached to the invoice).
What Happens Next:
You will have one more video before picking day. I’ll be sending out a reminder. For those who know the gender and names of your puppy already- (many of you have already chosen your puppy) you still have time to order your custom elevated feeder through our shop at LamgoLand.com. You’ll have to message me for bedding and toy box info. Our Maybelline puppies would use the small to medium feeders.

F3 Mini Goldendoodles
Charmin delivered 2 girls and 5 boys on July 1st!
What’s Happening Now:
These fluff balls are growing! They are now fully weaned and have had their first set of shots. They are so soft! This is the advantage of the f3 generation. Plus. . .no shedding. Temperament testing is complete and hopefully, I will have the results out to your by Wednesday. It may fall on Thursday since Phil’s birthday is Wednesday and we plan to celebrate big! By big. . .I mean dinner and in bed early. haha!
What Happens Next:
Your next email after the temperament testing results will be your reading material. This lists your puppy’s vaccinations and when to schedule your vet visit and what shots are next and when. For those who have just placed your deposit, you will most likely also need directions to the farm as well as your puppy picking instructions. As soon as we finish this busy weekend sending home Bella’s babies- I will sort out just what hasn’t been sent.
Invoices will also be emailed for balances. Your final email will be your pick up information which lists all of the contents of your puppy packet and how to prepare to take home your puppy.
FYI: puppy food, treats, potty training bells, nutritional supplement, toys, records and your travel crate are all part of your packet.
For those flying with your puppy in cabin- I do have a soft crate I recommend for travel. Puppies flying in cabin do not need a health certificate- but you will still have a health check paper given. Your crate needs to be soft and must fit under the seat in front of you. If you need help with obtaining your crate- let me know and we’ll order one for you.
Picking and Pick up will be on the same day, August 31. Times listed below are all central standard time.
- Sawyer- 10am
- Thomas- 11am
- Conrad-12 noon
- Garrett- 1pm
- Kuang- 2pm
Sanjay and Paddington F1bb Petite
Sanjay delivered 3 girls and 1 boy July 29.
I’m hoping we have eyes opened any day now. One we do- I’ll post them to our Facebook page. These babies are chunky, thriving and Sanjay is such a smart and wonderful mama.
Right now they are scooting around. By next week, they’ll be crawling around and will be able to see and hear us.
Video will begin next week when they are 3 weeks old!
We will be having our picking for this litter at week 6 on September 14th and then pick up at week 8, September 28th at 11am.
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 delivered 3 girls and 2 boys on Monday, August 5th. Mama and babies are doing great!
These puppies are all shades of red. Some very dark. Most look curly to me- but we need to wait a little longer to make sure.
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.
- Warner- thinking this is a female preference right now
- Rainwater- female preference
- Benevides- waiting to hear back
- Will be contacting the next waitlist: Reyes
Brie and Duke F1bb Mini/Medium
Brie is expecting and due August 23. Next week she will be moved to the nursery. 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.
Brie/Duke’s Baley (click link for baby pics)
Brie/Duke’s Emmie (click on link for baby pics)
Nala (Brie/Duke’s 2014 puppy) (clink on link for baby pics)
Sammy/Paddington F3 Mini Goldendoodles
Sammy has completed all inseminations. At this time I can feel 2 little ones. I’m going to wait a few more days to see if I can feel anything further. For those wanting the F3 mini generation- we do have one more picking spot in our Charmin litter. If Sammy did not ovulate- we may need to talk about your choices coming up.
Cream, white, apricot and peanut butter coloring. Wavy coats (one or two curly fleece possible). 25-35 lbs.
- White, N.
F1 Mini Goldendoodles
Well flolks. . .Snowflake’s cycle finally arrived and she has already had 3 inseminations. If they all take, her due date would be October 10th with puppies going home the final weekend in November. These puppies are usually a peanut butter coloring and have wavy coats. They mature between 27-37 lbs.
- Getterman (double listed)- this name will most likely fall off the list
- Burton (double listed)
Past Snowflake/Burton Puppies:
Lilly’s cycle has finally started! Yay! She will be bred this week. Due dates will be around October 11th with puppies going home around November 30. Colors are medium red with some white markings.
**We are needing to make a decision here within the next few days. Beans’ sperm count has been low. To ensure a red, wavy mini breeding, we would like to breed Lilly to Paddington instead of Beans. This would mean more of a 30 lb wavy coat offspring. For those on the list right now- let me know your thoughts. This would make an F2b generation instead of f1b. Both are hypoallergenic and non shedding.
Next Future Jasmine breeding:
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.
- Rainwater- double listed with Current Jasmine litter
Parker’s F1bb Pocket Goldendoodles – Breeding again early Summer 2019. Parker will be bred to Beans or one of our F1b Pockets. We have now retired Squishy.
At this time, we are watching Parker for impending heat. She is giving us signs that she is at the beginning of a cycle. We’ll wait and see! Of course, sometimes cycles are a little off schedule, so we will let you know if she cycles earlier than August.

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 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 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.

Double Doodles (mini Labradoodle/mini goldendoodle cross): $2,100
Goldendoodles (Standard, Medium and miniature): $1,950
Goldendoodles (Petite): $2,100
Goldendoodles (Pocket): $2,400

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.
