Weekly Update October 6, 2019

October 6, 2019

Welcome to another update at Lamgo Farms!  WE are so excited you have found your way to this page and can’t wait to share a little more about who we are, our puppies, and just what is happening this week on the Farm.

As you’ve noticed we are slowing down a bit with puppies going home and are about to start all over again for our Fall/Winter breeding.  Basically, unless a mama dog is off her schedule, we breed one cycle and then skip the next.  Some mama’s cycle every 6 months which is the average.  However, we do have some that cycle every 8 to 9 months.  So we do our best to estimate when breedings will take place.  If a mama gets off schedule, we will have a back to back breeding and then skip a cycle.

I’ve listed below our mama dogs currently pregnant and their estimated due dates as well as our next anticipated breedings.  Occasionally we will have a mama who will be late or early.  If the timing doesn’t work for you, just let me know and we can move you to another litter.

We do currently have our final picking spot available in our current Duke/Brie F1bb Mini (a few medium) Goldendoodle litter listed below.  They will be both chosen and going home this coming Saturday, Oct 12th.  Pricing is listed in the FAQ section.

I’m sorry, we don’t allow people to just come and look at puppies.  We provide video, pictures, and references for those inquiring.  A deposit is required along with an interview, your mailing address, email and phone number before you can come to the farm.  I know that may not sit well with some.  Just keep in mind this is our home where we have our children.  So we just need a little extra security as well as protection for our time as it is limited right now.

We are awaiting the birth of Snowflake’s puppies and will be ready to move Chaquita and Rosita to the nursery over the next few weeks for their deliveries. 

I am waiting until this weekend to confirm pregnancy on Lina who was bred to our Old English Sheepdog, Banks for another Sheepadoodle litter! We are praying it was successful.  We will also make a final ruling on whether or not our Lilly is expecting as well.  Since she only had 3 puppies last time, we know she can be carrying babies even without a large tummy.  I’m praying right along with you all!

For those getting frustrated with Parker’s overdue cycle- we do have confirmation on Rosita’s pregnancy.  Rosita is Parker’s size and will have petites.  These are slightly larger than our Pockets and should be all shades of red.  This has our English lines.

Ok, for everyone praying for my husband, Phil; let me just take a few moments thank you all so very much.  It has been a very trying and tense season for our family.  So we thank you so much for making us part of your family and taking our fears, worries, anxiety, stress and hurt to God on our behalf.

One area I continue to fail to recognize is our children.  Not only are we blessed to have our adult children lending us a helping hand but my preteen and teen daughters have been so gracious too assist with our three babies while Phil and I tend to doctor’s appointments.  While I mention their help, it sometimes escapes notice that they are also stressed and worried.  

My husband, Phil is our entire life.  It just doesn’t work without him.  And although I know God has us and will care for us if He chose to take Phil home, we are begging God to pull, lift and carry us through this season.  Sadly, sometimes when you homeschool and your grown children live at home to help- it is hard to fake that smile or hide your tears.

So if you think about it, please pray for our children.  For comfort, peace, understanding and that they extend extra grace for both Phil and I as we depend on God to father our children while we tend to fail in this emotional department over and over and over again. We can go from a high on the mountain top in the morning to tripping and falling down that mountain into the deepest pit.

I thank God for these sweet precious children of ours.  They are caring and helping us not only with puppies but also with our adult dogs who need attention and loving.  They are super smart dogs and even they know something is going on.

I can’t begin to tell you how many times one of our grown boys will come up to me and hold me tight.  I’m free to cry or just squeeze back. My daughter, Melissa will go that extra mile and do the dishes or pick up the living room.  My almost 12 year old, Jessica will grab a mop and dig in to incredible mess that is made on the floors by farm life, puppies and toddlers.  They don’t ask. . .they just jump in there. Thank you Lord for raising such wonderful children that can drive me crazy yet be my greatest blessing.

We are grateful for the prayers and God has answered so many of them.  Phil came through his surgery just fine this past week.  He woke up pain free.  But once that anesthesia began to wear off a little pain returned.  He is better than before being put under.  But he is incredibly limited right now.  

We saw one of Phil’s surgeons on Friday who immediately started scheduling his next procedure saying this procedure just didn’t work as well as they had hoped.   To which I may or may not have reacted with a huge sigh and a few swear words out loud to our sweet doctor.  

It wasn’t for nothing.  It was more diagnostic than anything.  It was pretty painless for Phil so we will get puppies through this weekend and Phil will go back in for not one but another 2 or 3 procedures in a row until we see progress with his spine.

Next on the docket is his neurologist.  At this time, his surgeon feels because the mass in his Brain is not growing and is not malignant- it would be safer to leave it. We first need to define why and where Phil’s loss of muscle, memory and vision issues are coming from.  Then we can decide if we leave it or take it out.

More than anything, I’m opening a can of worms here, so please forgive me for being a little more candid than usual.  Please pray that God restores our strength in Him.  Some days feel like we are twisting in the wind.  Please ask God to bless Lamgo Farms.  Not only for our family but for yours.  We have so many families that have waited a long time on our wait lists to get a puppy.  Please pray God gives us enough puppies for everyone.  Pray with us that they will be strong, healthy, adorable with perfect temperaments for each person on our lists.

We pray over our dogs every night before bed.  We pray over breedings, deliveries, the selection process and then as they go home.  We ask God to Bless each of you as your go through the puppy stage.  

May God Strengthen all of our hearts and our faith as we wait in hope for miracles of new life and restored health.  Lord, help our unbelief!

Thank you all for letting me pour out a little of my heart tonight.  Now, let’s get some of that fluffy therapy!  Scroll down to each of your litters to see just what is happening this week. . .

(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:

Well this is it!  The final week for these sweet babies!  Right now they are all in their own crates and training well.  We’re working on potty training as it’s been a little difficult to have much consistency with the hot weather.  I’m excited for the weather change so they can go outside to potty more often instead of relying on the potty pads.  This is still necessary as there will be times when weather is bad or if you can’t go outside for some reason.

What Happens Next:

Picking and pick up are on the same day, this Saturday, Oct 12th.  I’ve emailed directions, reading material, puppy picking instructions and pick up instructions.  If you did not receive these, please let me know asap.  

*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 Saturday, October 12.  Puppies will be chosen and going home on the same day.

All times are Central Standard.

Past Snowflake/Burton Puppies:


Lilly/Paddington 

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.  Begin a first time breeding- I am only taking 6 deposits until after puppies are born.

Rosita and Paddington’s F2b Mini Goldendoodles

Rosita’s pregnancy has been confirmed.  We just don’t know the number yet.  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.   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 2 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.

FAQ:

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 goldendoodles@lamgofarms.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.  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.
