February 24, 2020
Welcome to this week’s update at Lamgo Farms! I know this is posting a little late, so I first apologize for the delay and next I would like to thank you for your patience!
We’ve had a few changes to lists and we have taken out a breeding from the lists so I wanted to wait until I had time to make corrections prior to publishing.
We have a few open spots in our little pocket litter going home in about 3 weeks . Scroll down to Parker’s pockets to see just what is available.
This has already been a full and crazy week. Wait. . .it’s only Monday. Well, it’s been a week’s worth of crazy in one day. I’m not really sure how that is different from most days here on the farm but boy it sure has seemed chaotic today.
The three littles are enjoying “playing ” school so much that I now have to hide their curriculum to keep them from losing everything. I actually have to say, “No, today is not a school day.” This will change. I just hope I remember where I’m hiding everything from day to day. Searching the house is their new pastime.
This week my oldest daughter, Melissa turns Sweet Sixteen!!! I’ve been a mama for almost 24 years and I”m finally getting to celebrate a daughter turning 16. My Melly is a sweetheart and I can’t wait to watch what God has in store for her.
This week also begins my calorie counting and increase in insulin as we have Nate and Ava’s birthdays next week followed by my birthday and then another son who turns 18. It’s basically a hop, skip and a jump away from a diabetic coma for me. We literally get tired of cake by April first. We do the same thing again from July to October. Christmas is actually my time to be sick of sweets. So I guess it works for us. Haha!
Speaking of Birthday’s. . .we celebrated the first birthday of our last year’s Poppins’ Sheepadoodles and our sweet little Duke from Snowflake’s oops litter last year as well. Boy, what a year it’s been for us.
We had some super scary times last year and although I would never want to repeat most of it, I do enjoy looking back to see just How God pulled us through it all.
For those just now joining us, you probably don’t know that in July, I ruptured a disc and ended up having emergency spinal surgery when I could no longer feel my leg and was down to using a walker while screaming. It was the most pain I’ve known. So many of you prayed for me and my family and many even sent things to help or simply showed up at puppy picking and ended up helping me stand up and sit down throughout the day. I’ve said it before and I’ll keep on saying it. . .I have the best clients ever!
In the months before my back surgery, my husband was experiencing terrible back pain and sudden loss of muscle in his arms. So after my surgery, I brought him to my surgeon who ordered an MRI. We were shocked when we were told that Phil would one day have surgery but that they had some alternative procedures to help him along. Well, that wasn’t the shocker. . .what caught us off guard was the lesion they found on his brain stem during that MRI. He has a mass in his brain. One the radiologist is certain is not cancer but we then started on the journey of whether or not to move to remove it. We are now moving even closer to figuring this out as Phil is having increasing pressure and other symptoms. Like I said. . .it was a pretty trying year for us.
I would have never thought that we would be using our own therapy dogs to help my husband heal. But going out each morning to tend to the puppies and new mamas is just what he needed. Both emotionally and physically. We’ve now watched our three new kiddos thrive with the assistance of the puppies and older dogs. It’s so amazing to be able to get to the other side of the rough waters during a storm, or even set foot on a sandbar in the middle of it all for that matter just to look back and see God’s hands all over every little part and big moment.
I know some of you are experiencing life’s storms even as you read these words. Please know first that we are praying for you. And next, please know that God sees you. And even if He is silent. . .He is still listening.
Here is what we have now
and what is coming up soon.
Scroll down to the FAQ section to see how to place a deposit, pricing, how to reserve a puppy and to answer many questions.
Cheyenne and Duke’s F2 Mini Goldendoodles
Cheyenne delivered 5 girls on January 4th. They are absolutely beautiful. Right now it looks like the coats are mostly wavy. I’ll know more in a few days. They are what I call a “peanut butter” color and at least one red.
What’s Happening Now:
Can you believe it? Puppies go home this Saturday! Boy that went by fast. For those who have not yet heard the news. . .we have decided on light pink girl as our pick of the litter. Hopefully that will help you as you decide who your top picks are for your appointment.
The puppies have had their first set of shots and have completed their dewormings.
They are now fully weaned and are in their crates all by themselves. You will be able to read more about our crate training/potty training procedures in the Lamgo Farms Crate Training that was in your “Reading Material” email. That is the one you need to concentrate on right now.
Other than continued socializing, learning their sit command and crate training. . .they are ready to go home!
What Happens Next:
This week’s video is their final video. I will take pictures on Wednesday and post on our Facebook page but there will not be any further videos as we will be using that time to build your puppy packets and get the puppies ready to go.
Please refer to your puppy picking instructions, reading material and puppy pick up instructions to know just what to expect and how to prepare for your picking appointment.
For those wanting to place an order for an additional bag of puppy food or an elevated feeder. . .please let us now asap to make sure we have enough food in stock. Elevated feeders will soon be having a ceramic bowl option- so stay tuned! for more information on that. You can learn more by visiting our store at www.LamgoLand.com.
Invoices have been emailed. Please note that checks, certified funds and money orders are not accepted at pick up. Sorry to have to point that out, but we have many who show up unaware. . .in other words. . .didn’t read the emails.
Don’t forget about training! If you are interested in Training- please check out www.HiltonButler.com for their puppy boot camp. If you are long distance and wish to use this boot camp, Lamgo Farms will transport your puppy for their training which lasts 3 weeks.
Directions have been emailed! Let me know if you can’t find yours. It’s a good idea to look them over even if you are using GPS as some GPS devices do not always lead to us.
OK, we are ready for you to MEET your puppies!!!
These puppies are priced at $2,100.

Parker’s F1bb Pocket Goldendoodles
Parker’s puppies are here!!! She delivered 4 girls and 2 boys on Sunday, January 19.
What’s Happening Now:
We are seeing those little personalities emerge! The puppies are spending more and more time playing both with each other and with their toys. They are just tiny little bears. Towards the end of this week we will do their temperament testing. Results will be emailed during week 6. We are seeing some teeth emerging now so once everyone has teeth, we will introduce them to kibble! Time is just flying with this group. I am so very thankful for my girls Melissa (16 this week) and Jessica (12) who faithfully hold, socialize and perform sensory stimulation to each puppy daily. They are in puppy Heaven. And that is such a blessing to me.
What Happens Next:
The puppies will receive their first set of shots during week 6. They will also receive another deworming preventative.
Week 6: I will send out emails with reading material, temperament testing results and invoices for balances. Week 7: I will email puppy pick up instructions to prepare you for taking home your puppy.

What’s Happening Now:

Right now the puppies are still basically sleeping and nursing. And let me tell you, these babies are FAT! I’m absolutely loving it! I kind of have a thing for fat. . .anything. Babies, puppies, burritos.
Tomorrow the puppies will receive their first worming preventative. They will continue to receive this every 2 weeks until they go home.

This year we are having our picking and pick up on the same day. This way, owners can choose in person and make only one trip. We have so many people from out of town that this has been the preference so far.
Our picking and pick up for this litter will be Saturday, April 4th. This is the Saturday before Palm Sunday. The puppies will be 2 days shy of 8 weeks old which is just fine. We can avoid interrupting your Easter plans this way as well. Your picking times are listed below. Everyone gets one hour to choose your puppy and go through your puppy packets.

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 Buy Now button under the litter in which you wish to reserve your picking spot. 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.
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 23, 19, 17, 15, 12, 3, 2 and 16 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.

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.
