September 26, 2019
Welcome back to another update at Lamgo Farms! I’m so glad you’ve found your way here to see just what is happening with our family, farm life and furry friends.
For those wondering, no you did not miss any updates recently. The update has been on hold while we concentrate on getting puppies crate trained and off to their new owners.
This weekend we will have our puppy pick up and then next weekend our final petite puppies will be flying to their forever homes.
We do have the final pick of the litter still available for our Brie/Duke F1bb Mini (a few mediums) Goldendoodle litter that will go home October 12. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for inquiries.
I apologize that our go daddy email has been down for a few days. If you have emailed lately and not received a response, please forward your messages again and I’ll get back to you this weekend.
For our owners and those waiting for paperwork- please check to make sure you have received emails from me. I’m not sure emails sent this week were received. Thank you for your patience.
For those inquiring about our upcoming season- we will be basically repeating litters a year from the previous breeding. Right now we are expecting puppies that will go home around Thanksgiving through Christmas. These are our Snowflake, Chaquita, (maybe Lilly), Rosita, and Lina litters.
I don’t know about you, but we are more than done with this never ending summer weather. The doodles and I are ready for FALL! Apparently Texas does has opted out of Fall this year. The hot weather is hard on us, and the doods as it alters breeding cycles. So we are praying for a cold front to park here in town for the next three seasons! ( A girl can dream)
The kiddos have been enjoying playing with and socializing the puppies we have right now. They will be more hands on while Phil is recovering the next few weeks. For those who have been following my husband’s health journey, thank you for your prayers and please keep praying.
We finally received insurance approval for three procedures Phil is requiring right now. Please pray as he has a spinal procedure next week. Phil is basically in severe pain 24/7. We are hopeful in this procedure and trusting God to take Phil’s pain away and restore his health. Although in pain, he still tends to chores and puppies every single day.
Puppies and their moms and dads do not take a weekend off. They don’t even take Sunday’s off to Sabbath. So we don’t get those necessary breaks to help us refresh and rest. The kiddos will be stepping in and helping us with socializing and playing with the final litter on the ground while Phil takes it easy for the next 2 weeks. We want this to work for him so we are grounding him for a few weeks. I’m not sure he will comply- but we’ll try.
For those just now following our story- both Phil and I have suffered some health setbacks recently that have taken us by surprise. I had back surgery for a ruptured disk that has left permanent nerve damage and after 16 years as a cowboy, Phil is dealing with the harsh spinal damage that has left him in so much pain. As he went in for a routine MRI to look at his spine, the radiologist noted a mass on his Brain stem.
A second MRI was performed on his brain and confirmed that he does have a mass in his brain but it is not consistent with cancer. For that we are praising God and so thankful for answered prayers. Phil is suffering from a very rare growth that although benign, will still need to be addressed as it can cause blindness or even press on arteries vital to sustain life.
We are pressing on with his spinal issue right now so he can once again walk and even run without pain. The neurologists believe the mass in his brain could very well be the reason he suddenly lost the use of the muscles in his arms. They also believe his caring daily for the puppies has allowed him to basically have daily physical therapy to keep his body in motion while so much is happening to him.
I cannot brag on this guy of mine enough. He is a gentle giant. His heart is huge and his compassion shows when I walk in on him sweet talking a tiny puppy while cuddling it in his massive arms. His love for his family and work ethic keep him getting out of bed each day and working his fingers to the bone. We are grateful to have a husband and father like him in our lives.
Please pray his surgeries are a success and we are continuing to pray that the Lord simply removes this mass from his brain so he can avoid that procedure as well. Thank you all who have written, prayed with and over us and have left messages for Phil. You have no idea how much that blesses our souls. We are humbled that you would take the time to do so. And we want you to know that although we have had a few speed bumps lately in our walk through life, care for your puppies has never diminished.
We are thankful the Lord has given us a little down time in between litters to allow Phil to get his health back and for me to continue rehabilitation for my own back issues.
Through it all, God is here, He still loves us and is ever so so good to us- no matter what happens.

(Keep scrolling to see our planned 2020 schedule)
Brie and Duke F1bb Mini/Medium
Brie delivered 3 girls and 2 boys on August 14.
What’s Happening Now:
The puppies are 6 weeks old today! I know we skipped on the update last week, but I’ve been putting pictures up on Facebook just in case you’ve missed anything. I will have new pictures and video this Friday again.
The puppies are now fully weaned and we have split them up into a group of 2 and a group of 3.
They are being socialized by all ages and genders with our kiddos right now. They will soon be the only puppies on the ground so they are getting good attention right now.
Because they are 6 weeks old today- they will be getting their first set of shots and another deworming.
What Happens Next:
The puppies will be introduced to their crates this weekend. They will be placed with their buddy (2 in one and 3 in the other) and then the final week they will be alone in their crate for nap time and night time.
Temperament testing was last week and the results will be emailed yet sometime tonight. Next week I will be emailing directions to our place as well as puppy picking instructions. This will be followed by some reading material which will also show just which shots were given as well as when the next set of shots is due. Finally, you’ll receive your puppy pick up instructions and then we will be ready for puppies to go home.
*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.
We are doing picking and pick up on the same day for this litter. This is a change from our original plan so please take a look at the new times. The new date is Saturday, October 12. Puppies will be chosen and going home on the same day.
All times are Central Standard.
- Martens- 10am
- Riddick- 12pm
- N. White-hold- 4pm

F1 Mini Goldendoodles
Snowflake is doing great. Her tummy is expanding and she will be moved to the puppy nursery Next weekend! October 10th is our expected due date 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.
- Burton (double listed)
Past Snowflake/Burton Puppies:
F2b Red Mini Goldendoodles
Lilly has completed her inseminations but her ultrasound came up empty. We could not find puppies. The Vet was a little mystified since Lilly’s belly was expanding and she now has milk sacs. We will check again since she had multiple inseminations that were about a week apart. If it is confirmed that she is not expecting we can move you to another litter. We have confirmed Chaquita’s pregnancy with ultrasound. Her litter will be similar to the look of Lilly’s. We do have spots available in her litter or we can return your deposit if we do not have picking spots in your preferred litters. We have picking spots in Snowflake’s litter and we will have more reds being bred in December.

Chaquita and Burton F1b Mini Goldendoodles
This is a new first time breeding. Chaquita is a Bella/Paddington Daughter- so there is some English from Bison in this line. Her pregnancy has been confirmed via Ultrasound. Her estimated due date is October 24. This litter should have all shades of red.

Rosita and Paddington’s F2b Mini Goldendoodles
This is a new first time breeding. Rosita is a Snowflake and Burton daughter. There is some English in this line from Snowflake. We love the English lines as they are more laid back and tend to really be helpful too our Returning Veterans with PTSD. We will wait another week to confirm pregnancy. Pictures of Rosita coming soon. We expect all shades of red.

Lina/Banks F1 Standard Sheepadoodles
Lina and Banks have completed the breeding process. Now we will wait to see if she actually ovulated. We will confirm pregnancy in 3 weeks. We are not accepting deposits until pregnancy is confirmed. Puppies will go home in December if this is successful. Lina usually has 6 puppies in a litter. The first pick will say here at Lamgo Farms for breeding. The second pick will be on hold for an owner who passed up their first pick of our Poppins Sheepadoodle litter last year.
Parker’s F1bb Pocket Goldendoodles – Parker will be bred to Beans or one of our F1b Pockets. We have now retired Squishy.
I know, it’s so hard to wait, especially when the timing is off from planned. At this time, we are watching Parker for impending heat. The higher temperatures have always affected cycles. It was during our last little cold front that our other females also behind finally cycled. For those unable to wait, we will have at least one, maybe two puppies available between our Jasmine and Sanjay litters. Sanjay is Parker’s sister. These are petites. Hang in there!!! Right now it looks as if we may have puppies going home for Christmas in this litter.
- Benavides (double listed)

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.

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.

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.
