Welcome to this week’s update at Lamgo Farms!!! I’m so excited you’ve found your way here and are getting to know a little more about our puppies, family and farm
I pray each of you are well along with your friends, colleagues and families. You are in our prayers.
We are doing well. We are just going along as business as usual with the farm and puppies, chickens and gardens, homeschool and new full time job. . .grocery shopping. I assumed I would gain a ton of weight with all of this bread baking, but as soon as I sit down to eat, someone asks for a “bite” or assistance. I’m not sure I’ve eaten a hot meal yet this year. God does work in interesting ways.
Our kiddos will be schooling until June this year since we kind of threw out schooling for a bit to sit for hours and online shop. No, just kidding. But seriously, we took a few weeks to be “off” from any real school schedule and are now just getting back into the swing of things.
The one thing our kids know for sure is that once we reach the 100 degree mark here in Texas, we are back to full time schooling. And as soon as we reach below 80, we are off again!
For those who are just now joining our journey, let me introduce myself. I am Sandra, but call me Sandi. My husband has run my father’s cattle ranch for about 16 years before being put on leave. He is having medical issues. We’ll just leave it at that for now. Anyway, we have 8 children. Yes 8. Which is why I am always late getting this posted. LOL!
Our kids range from young adult down to 19 months old. All of that was just a mild introduction. What you really need to know is that I am both a crazy cat, dog and chicken lady. I’d love to add piglets and bunnies but Phil is asking me to pace myself. We use to have ducks but a herd of skunks had a different plan for me. And for the bunnies. . .we did have many when our boys were little. Well, we were gifted 2 when we moved here. Apparently it was a male and female. No need to expand on that.
We have a multitude of asthmatics and allergies in the family so when we came across a doodle in a pet shop 17 years ago while picking up fish (oh yeah, add fish to that crazy lady list) we just had to visit with this cute guy. We suddenly noticed that my husband was doing just fine with this dog. And so Lamgo Farms was formed. Not officially a Texas business until 2009.
The one thing you will probably notice about me the most is that I love winter and cold and snow. WE are from Colorado. My entire house is loaded with winter scenes to keep the cool mind set. Since summer is coming in at full speed ahead, I will just warn you. I complain about the heat. So I’ll apologize early for that one.
Our doodles seem to share my love of air conditioning. They love being out right now and running around all day. But when it’s above 90, we make those plans to take a walk down the 1/2 mile driveway and about 12 steps in, we look at each other and agree we will go back to air conditioning.
Ok, enough about me. I know that there is a puppy shortage out there because, let’s face it. . .puppies are cute and therapeutic and for those home right now, it is an excellent time to dig into training your doodles! For those not up to training on your own, we highly recommend http://www.HiltonButler.com. Take a peek at what they do and speak to Christine. They are awesome.
My texts and email are delayed most of the time from hundreds of inquries each day. It is impossible for us to have enough puppies for everyone right now, but we will keep having more throughout the summer, with puppies going home in the fall. Then we start all over again next year. We would love to be the place you find your next best friend, but if not- we would still love to sing the praises of doodles! They are awesome!
Ok, let’s scroll on down to see just what is happening in each of your litters. . .
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.
Maybelline F1b Petite Labradoodles
(Beans-red toy sire)
Maybelline delivered 3 girls and 4 boys on March 3, 2020. We have black, red, and a white! The girls are the Turquoise, Light pink and Lavender collars. All others are males. 16-20 lbs Mature. Black collar boy and lavender collar girl will be closer to 30 lbs due to the thickness of their frame.
Puppies will be scheduled to be both chosen and going home on Saturday, May 2nd.
What’s Happening Now:
Well folks, we are in the final stretch for these sweet babies. I cannot believe how time has just flown by for us. I’m sure it’s been a lot longer for you. But they are all doing so well and will be ready to go home next Saturday, May 2nd.
Each of you should have received your temperament testing, reading material, and puppy pick up instructions. Please check your bulk mail, spam folder or let me know if you did not get it and I’ll resend them.
The puppies are fully weaned and we are working on a few basic commands right now. They have been divided up into 2 groups of 2 and 1 group of 3. They are now in their individual crates and are doing great with crate training! Yay!
The girls play with them twice a day and then they have free play time together in the afternoon.
What Happens Next:
The puppies will have one final preventative deworming prior to going home. We will be scheduling our Vet to come out to check puppies out prior to going home as well. I keep forgetting to inform everyone this before pick up. But your puppy will have a fresh bath and we will apply Advantage II Flea preventative the day they go home. This will give you 30 days of flea and tick protection.
I will be emailing invoices out sometime over the next few days. You can learn more about how to pay your balance there.
For those flying puppies, we will be shipping out puppy packets either tomorrow or Thursday. UPS tracking numbers will be emailed.
These puppies are priced at $2,100
- LF- black collar boy hold
- Rainwater- Light pink girl
- Cooper-yellow collar boy
- Montgomery- Green collar boy
- Novelly- Turquoise girl
- Vargas- Lavender girl
- Murti- Orange Boy
Charmin/Paddington F3 Mini Goldendoodles
Charmin delivered 4 girls and 5 boys on March 11th.
Matures between 20-30 lbs.
What’s Happening Now:
The puppies will be 6 weeks old already tomorrow!!! Time is flying by!!! These babies are all so precious. With so many I know the decision will be difficult. This is where our temperament assessment comes in handy. We breed for uniformity but there are some little things that can set each puppy aside in a special way for each family. We say to start with your top three. Then move to the process of elimination.
Each of you should have received directions to the farm which has your supply list attached as well as another email with Reading material. Now, it is not my intention to overwhelm you with information. The reading material really needs to focus on the Crate training procedures from Lamgo Farms. That will get you ready. Everything else can be red in time. IF you did not receive these emails, please check your bulk or spam folders or let me know and I’ll resend them.
Puppy picking: Right now puppy picking is scheduled to be conducted the same time puppies are picked up on Saturday, May 9th. If we are still in quarantine, we will need to schedule a virtual picking, where you will choose via Facetime the day before and then everyone will have a time slot to pick up on the 9th. We still have some time so I will email you pick up times and then if we have to back peddle a tad to choose the day before and pick up the next I will let you know asap.
Puppies right now are going through the weaning process. They nurse once in the morning and once at dinner time. Then they are eating gruel with hard kibble in it. We want to boost their nutrition while they are being separated from mama.
What Happens Next:
Next week, week 7, puppies will receive their first set of shots. I will email your puppy picking instructions as well as your invoices. Then another puppy pick up email and you will be all set!
These puppies are priced at $1,950

Poppins/Banks F1 Moyen Sheepadoodles
These Sheepadoodles are range between the Moyen and Standard size. They are not as large as Lina’s Sheepadoodles. Matures between 55-65 lbs.
Poppins delivered 5 girls and 4 boys on Tuesday, March 24th.
What’s Happening Now:
The puppies are now 4 weeks old and are getting so big! The girls always refer to the large puppies as “potatoes.” I think it’s because before they start walking around, they look like just a bunch of potatoes laying on the ground. Well, we like potatoes here!
Everyone received another preventative deworming this week and are continuing to eat their “gruel” or first soft food. This is a mixture of our premium puppy food, milk replacer, nutritional supplement, and warm water all blended to an oatmeal consistency. They LOVE it! They are having their gruel twice a day while mama is out playing. Once they are full, they walk away from the plate and then Poppins comes in to finish off the left overs. A nice high calorie diet is good for her recovery with so many nursing puppies.
Puppies are being socialized three times a day, mainly by my 16 and 12 year old girls who have grown up with puppies their entire lives. They are puppy whisperers. Next week I will be emailing your directions to the farm as well as puppy picking instructions which has some much needed information such as your vaccination schedule and when to schedule your first Vet appointment.
What Happens Next:
Week 5 is when we conduct our temperament testing. The results along with our assessment for each puppy’s personality, coat traits, markings, estimated mature size and just what kind of family would work best for the pup will be included in our results. These will be emailed at week 6. During week 6 I will email invoices and will send out some reading material to help you understand your puppy’s schedule and how to prepare for their arrival.
These puppies are priced at $2,100.

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 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.
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.

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.
