June 18, 2020
Welcome back to another update at Lamgo Farms!! I’m so excited you’ve found your way here to see just what is happening with our family, farm and furry friends.
I know it’s been a few weeks since my last update so I appreciate your incredible patience and grace while waiting for me to get back in the swing of things after having a few large litters of puppies added to our already busy daily schedule.
Busy, yes. Overwhelmed? well. . .just a little at times. But right now, my main focus is on my puppies, children and past and current puppy owners. Sadly and really unfortunately, this has left my email and messages from prospective new owners as well as those inquiring on hold. I try to set aside an hour a day to answer messages and email and for some reason, I still miss some.
For those who have written and not yet received a reply, I am so very sorry. I do eventually get to most everyone, but I usually start with the most recent and work my way back. My email bounce back message leads here and I know many of you found your way to this update via that message. Thank you for sticking with it to read down this far.
For those who have read the FAQ (written in red at the end of this update), seen our litters with openings and located the upcoming schedule ( at the end of all of the litters) and still have some questions, please do text me again at 817-366-7995. We value your time and your inquiring about our puppies.
I know many of you have been referred to us by friends who have our dogs or referrals from perfectly good strangers who have our dogs. We would love to see you take home one of our doodles. So please do send me a reminder message.
So now for the exciting news. . .we have recently inseminated a few of our mama’s and we do expect more litters yet to go home in 2020. Sanjay and a new breeding with our mama doodle, “CD” should be due in August with puppies going home in October. Sanjay’s litter is all reserved but “CD” hasn’t even been mentioned yet here on the Update so we do have picking spots in her litter. This litter will resemble our famous Duke and Daphne F2b mini’s.
I am currently inseminating Bella as well as Lilly for our mini and English doodles. I have listed Bella but not Lilly. We’ll add her once pregnancy is confirmed.
Ok, before you scroll on down to see just what is happening in each of your litters, I want to announce that I am going to keep this opening to the update the same for a few weeks and basically just change out the links to photo galleries and Youtube videos, post weekly picture updates as well as actual written updates for each litter and then finally I will make sure all lists are update to date each Monday. This way I can make smaller updates as they happen instead of waiting for a large one like now.
For those wanting to see video when it is first posted, simply go over to our Youtube channel, “Happenings at Lamgo Farms” and hit the subscribe button. Once you take home your puppy you can always unsubscribe. This will notify you as to when I post new videos.
Ok, that’s it for my rant this week. I hope you all are doing well and staying safe, , ,Puppy on. . .
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.
Chaquita and Burton
English Mini Goldendoodles
Chaquita delivered 3 girls and 6 boys today in Mother’s Day! Puppies will be going home Friday, July 3rd.
Chaquita has reds, peanut butter colors and some apricot. They are from the English Creme line mixed with red poodles so we get that great blocky face, mostly wavy coats, some curly and all in the darker colors packaged in a miniature size.
What’s Happening Now:
Oh these amazing English doodles never fail to take my breath away. They are all so beautiful and adorable in every way. Jessica came up to me today and said, “oh the puppies are just too cute today.” I asked her just which puppies, she replied, “all of them!”
I am not envious of your choice dilemma at all. I agree, it looks difficult. However, keep watching videos, look at pictures and make lists of what you are looking for in a puppy. Do that now, so when you receive my assessment for each puppy, you can cross reference your needs and desires with each recommendation I give for each puppy.
I always tell people to start thinking of your top 3 favorites.
Right now the puppies and Chaquita have been given a much larger “toddler” area to romp and play. This is especially important when it comes to potty training. We use a layout where potty pads are at one end and their bed and food is at the other end. Toys are littered from one end to the other. Kind of like my house.
The puppies are eating solid kibbles mixed in with their gruel. They’ll do this for another week.
I still have a few of you who need your purchase contracts emailed. You are at the top of the list!!!
Puppy Picking is already upon us! Saturday, June 27. Your puppy picking information email is on it’s way.
What Happens Next:
During week 6 we will introduce the puppies to crate training. They will start at 2 per crate with the final crate having 3. This eliminates the stress of being alone in the crate upon introduction. Once they are use to being in there for their morning nap, we will then move them to their own crate during nap time. It’s a slow process but one that allows us to send puppy home acclimated to the crate without inducing stress.
During week 6 you will also get the results of temperament testing which includes my assessment of each puppy. I will also be sending your puppy picking instructions so you are all prepared for the selection process.
Week 7: puppies are chosen, invoices are emailed.
Week 8: puppies go home!

Snowflake and Burton
F1 English Mini Goldendoodles
Puppies born May 29th.
Snowflake is a white English Creme Golden Retriever and Burton is our AKC Registered red Toy Poodle.
Puppies are a peanut butter or cream color with wavy coats that do not shed. They tend to have more of the blocky English face. They mature between 25-35 lbs with an average of 27 lbs.
Snowflake and the babies are doing great! We have just passed the 2nd week mark and eyes and ears are now open! Right now the puppies spend their day nursing and sleeping. And because they are the only 2. . .they are just the fattest little babies I’ve ever seen! If you know me, you know I love fat puppies. Next week will be their first video. I can’t wait for you to see them.
Up next: During week 4 I will email directions to the farm and then during week 5 we will conduct our temperament testing. The results will be emailed during week 6. Since you have already chosen your puppies, we will simply arrange pick up for each of you. I’ll get with you this week so we can plan a good date and time for you. They will be ready to go home Friday, July 24.
These puppies are priced at $1,950.
Rosita and Paddington
Rosita delivers mostly pocket size puppies with a few at the higher end around 15 lbs. The mature size range for these puppies is 8-16 lbs.
Rosita is one of Snowflake’s English Mini Goldendoodles. She is more of a micro mini size as she takes after her daddy’s toy size. But the English line runs through these tiny babies. Colors are cream to light red. Both wavy and curly coats.
These puppies are priced at $2,100.
What’s Happening Now:
These tiny beautiful babies are exactly 5 weeks old today!!!! I will have new video tomorrow already. I absolutely adore these babies. They are so precious and full of personality but all in a tiny little body. I can’t wait to see what they do during this next video.
Right now the puppies are still eating gruel with some hard kibble scattered throughout. They are still nursing as often as they wish, however, we will begin reducing the time they nurse at the end of week 6. We let the little ones nurse longer than our larger sizes. Everyone is now playing with both each other and with toys.
Each of you should have received directions to the farm as well as an email with reading material. Please let me know if you did not receive your email. (check spam and bulk folders).
For those who have yet to receive your purchase contracts, I will be working on these after I finish Chaquita’s litter.
What Happens Next:
Week 5: Temperament testing is conducted. Week 6, Temperament testing results will be emailed along with Puppy picking instructions.
Week 7: Virtual Puppy Picking, Wednesday, July 1st. Puppies receive their first set of shots.
Week 8: Puppies go home- Friday, July 10 th ( Or Saturday if necessary)

Lina/Banks F1 Standard Sheepadoodles
Lina delivered 6 boys and 3 girls on May 18th
Lina is our Standard White Poodle. She is huge, but as sweet as can be. I’ve never met a more intelligent dog. Banks is our super sweet Old English Sheep Dog. He is the absolute perfect dream dog. Both are so very gentle around our young children. Together they make a beautiful Sheepadoodle.
Sheepadoodles are super smart so like any other of our doodles, they require training. This is a must. Don’t skip this step.
What’s Happening Now:
These beautiful potatoes (what the girls call them) are now just a tad over 4 week old! Time is flying by! New video will be taken on Saturday and most likely uploaded on Sunday. Each of these babies is absolutely adorable and so squeezable. They had a great time playing with our littles today while we cleaned up a bit. Right now they are still eating their gruel with some hard kibble tossed on top.
They are still with mama all the time and nursing as they wish. This is the week we really see those personalities emerge. They are now playing with their toys and each other.
We are now over the halfway mark! Sometime early next week I will email your directions to the farm and some reading material which has a lot of training tips, our schedule for your puppy when they are ready to go home as well as information on our bell potty training/crate training. The Reading material email will also have all of your information on Vaccinations and when to schedule your first Vet visit.
I am working on purchase contracts for the 2 litters born before these little bears. As soon as I complete theirs, I will move on to this litter. Thank you so much for your patience.
What Happens Next:
Week 5: Temperament testing is conducted.
Week 6: Temperament testing results will be emailed. Puppy picking instructions will be emailed.

F2b Petite Reds
Boston delivered 3 boys and 2 girls on June 16th.
Mama and babies are all doing awesome! The Vet came out today to remove dew claws and everyone is doing great! I am seeing some beautiful coats. A few have a little white on their heads. Right now the girl with the white seems to be curly. The others wavy. The male with the white on the head appears to be wavy. One curly male and the other male also wavy. The wavy coats will stay wavy. I’m watching the curly coats. They are only 2 days old so mama keeps licking them which can make those coats look a little more curly when wet. I’ll know more in a few days regarding any more curly coats staying curly.
This litter will be ready to go home August 11th which is a week day. We can work out pick up details once I hear back from everyone.
Welcome letters will be emailed on Monday. This will have all of the details of our schedule from now to getting puppy home as well as a suggested supply list to get you started.
Once we are all settled on this list as far as picking order goes- I can email your purchase contracts.
- Nevle- double listed
- Dela Cruz
Boston and Paddington are both red with wavy coats. Their puppies have both wavy and curly coats and are usually all shades of red. Although we usually see one cream in her litters.
Final 2020 Breedings
F2 English Mini/Medium
Bella had a split cycle which we have experienced before with our past mama, Sammy. She is once again in cycle and is currently being inseminated! This will give us puppies due mid to late August and going home mid to late October.
Bella is the daughter of our famous Moyen poodle, Brie and our famous English Creme Retriever, Bison. Bison’s breeding line is from Denmark. He is truly from champions. Bella is an f1 Standard Goldendoodle which we mix with our famous Paddington Bear who is red. Puppies in this litter have mostly wavy coats with maybe one or two curly. Some of the puppies end up with more of a wire texture. Basically a beautiful flowing non shedding coat. All others are a typical doodle wavy cotton texture. These puppies are what we call a mini/medium in that some stay the mini size around 35 lbs while others get around 45 lbs. We can tell this by week 5 when we do our testing. Colors are cream, apricot and some light red or peanut butter coloring. Bella usually has 10-11 puppies in a litter.
Litter on Hold until pregnancy is confirmed.
Still waiting on Parker’s cycle. Any time now. Parker’s puppies mature between 8-16 lbs. They are cream, peanut butter and red. Wavy and curly coats.
- Crawford- double listed
Sanjay has completed the breeding process. We will wait another week to confirm pregnancy. Puppies would go home around October 2020.
Sanjay is one of our Daphne and Burton girls. She is Parker’s sister from a later litter. She has the wonderful loving traits and coat from her mother and Burton has given her that beautiful color that passes down to her puppies. Her puppies have both the pocket and petite sizes in one litter. We will have puppies as small as 10 lbs and as large as 18 lbs.
“CD” and Fred F2bb Mini Goldendoodle’s
“CD” is one of our F1b puppies born and raised here. Fred is one of our own Duke and Daphne puppies!!! He is from their final litter. This is a first time breeding for both of them. We are so excited to see their babies! Breeding is now complete and we are now waiting another 2 weeks to confirm pregnancy. Puppies should be born around early August with a going home time frame around early October. I have started a list with a few spots taken. I’ll post that next week along with pictures of CD and Fred. (Chandler)

As you can see, we normally have the same schedule each year. Our dogs typically breed every other cycle. However, sometimes cycles run early or late so this can alter our schedule. Occasionally we will do a back to back breeding and then rest our mama a little longer. It all depends on our mama’s, their health, and our schedule.
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.

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.
