December 8, 2020
Welcome to this week’s update at Lamgo Farms!!! Thank you so much for returning to see just what is happening with our Family, Farm, and Furry Friends.
Well, the big moment is upon us. Puppies are going home in three separate litters. This week and weekend will be super busy so I apologize for ignoring my email and messages. I know they are filling up this week but every moment is scheduled right now.
A Covid Holiday season has kept us more than busy but we are loving it. We included litters this season that we normally save for Spring so our owners could spend time with puppies while home. I’m so thankful for the litters God has so graciously given.
These puppies are all so beautiful! Yes, it is hard to let them go. I’m asked that all the time. Normally, I’m in the moment of puppy packets, puppy baths, email and texts with owners and the business of it all so the reality of it all doesn’t hit me until the final puppy of the day is gone. And then it’s time for some ice cream.
That is always how I dealt with puppy pick up days with my now older kids. It helped them through letting them go. Now that my Jessica is older, she chooses not to participate in going home day. She gets attached and it’s just easier to not see it.
I get it. But what everyone needs to know is that I get to see the joy in the faces of our owners as they pick up their new baby. I get to see kids as they are surprised. I even am touched by tears of pure happiness. And that makes it all worth it. The months of preparation, the time and energy spent on the grown up dogs, the inseminations, the vet appointments, and the daily care of each puppy. . .it’s all worth it in that one moment of handing off a puppy to its owner.
And let’s not forget the pictures! Oh, I love pictures. You can never send too many! Believe it or not, I remember each and every puppy that’s been in my hands. I hold them from the moment of birth until they leave us. They are many but never leave my heart. Thank you all so much for taking such great care of them. We cover each puppy and owner with prayer.
Thank you all for being a part of our journey. We are truly honored to have been chosen to care for these treasures.
Now, before you are actually here to pick up your puppy . . .let’s scroll down to see just what is happening in each of your litters this week . . .
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.
Ethel / Samson
F2b Mini Double Doodles
(red/apricot/possibly black) wavy cotton and wire coats. Ethel delivered 1 girl (dark pink collar) and 6 boys on October 14th. This litter will be going home December 11th and 12th.
What’s Happening Now:
It’s both a sad and happy time. . .going home day. These babies are all a very big part of our daily life and letting them go is sad but when I see how happy they are to meet their owners in person and when we see the joy in the eyes of families, well, this hard part is made easier.
We are still sticking to our schedule of crate training, potty training and socializing. Right now the babies are split up into groups. The extended stay puppy is now with my puppies staying here, and then we have 2 groups of 3. This helps them have more room to play and makes training sessions easier.
What Happens Next:
I will be sending out a reminder for pick up along with the schedule just to make sure we are all on the same page. Those flying should have received a text from me with flight information. Let me know if you have any questions.
Charmin / Paddington F3 Mini Goldendoodles
Charmin delivered 6 girls and 3 boys on October 15. Puppies will be going home December 11th and 12th. The boys are the orange, yellow and black collars. All others are girls.
Charmin is one of our Duke/Daphne puppies with a beautiful soft cotton non shedding coat. She gives us a variety of colors: (apricot, cream and peanut butter colors- wavy coats).
What’s Happening Now:
I can’t believe the time is here! Puppies are going home the end of this week and weekend.
Right now we are spending out time crate training, potty training and socializing. The puppies have been split up into groups depending on when they are leaving. Being in a smaller group has settled them down a bit more as they have more room to play and training sessions are better with a small handful of puppies vs a large group.
What Happens Next:
Each of you will be receiving a reminder for pick up, flying and our extended stay schedule. Just a reminder that for our puppies flying, we are now needing to settle invoices so we can finalize flying reservations. Let me know if you have any questions.

F1b Red Petite Teddybear Goldendoodles
Jasmine delivered her 9 puppies on October, 19. 4 girls and 5 boys. These are F1bb Petite Goldendoodles. Matures between 16-20 lbs. A few may be smaller.
What’s Happening Now:
Well this is it!!! These babies are going home in just a few days. Right now they are crate training, socializing and being loved on by myself and the family. These little teddybears will be truly missed!
What Happens Next:
Each of you should have received your invoices and your Puppy Pick up information email. Your pick up days and times are listed there.
Rosita / Paddington
Pocket and petite English Goldendoodles
(Mostly red, peanut butter or apricot). Wavy coats, more blocky face. Most will be the pocket size 8-15 lbs. A few end up Petite 16-18 lbs.
Past Puppy pictures can be viewed on our Instagram Highlight “Rosita.”
Rosita delivered 3 boys and 3 girls on December 1st. Mama and babies are all doing well! Congratulations puppy owners! Everyone in the first 6 spots have confirmed so those on the wait list will be moving to future litters.
Puppy picking is scheduled for January 9th. Puppies will be going home January 23rd.
Everyone has their collars on now so you can identify them better. The girls collars are dark pink, purple and turquoise. The boys are the black, yellow and orange collars. Everyone in this litter will be a wavy coat.
Right now the puppies’ eyes and ears are closed so they use their sense of smell to locate mama and nurse. They actually spend all of their time right now nursing and sleeping. The Vet has already been over to remove dew claws. Each of these babies has a nice chunky tummy on them! At this time they are all a nice petite size. Of course, we will be able to see over the next few weeks if we have any that remain smaller than the others.
I know many of you asked when you could place a deposit. Now that puppies are here, you can scroll down past the picking list and place your deposit. If we will be flying your puppy, please email or text me your mailing address so we can have it when we ship out puppy packets and crates.
What Happens Next:
We should see those first slits of eyes opening around day 14. The puppies will also begin to hear me for the first time. At week 2 we will administer the first in a series of three preventative de-worming. Individual pictures will be posted this week when eyes are open. The first video will be posted to our Youtube channel, Happenings at Lamgo Farms at week 3.

F2b Mini Goldendoodles
Boston appears to be expecting! I can definitely feel an extended uterus but Boston has fooled me once before, so this is why I tend to shy away from confirming pregnancy for her without an ultrasound.
Due to puppies going home in our other litters, and my utilizing Vet time for puppy check visits- We will confirm pregnancy via ultrasound next week. I know it’s a little late and you all have been oh so patient-but I just feel better having that additional confirmation as I know many are announcing a puppy as a Christmas present.
Boston usually has the upper weight range of our Petites with some Mini sizes. Puppies usually mature around 20-24 lbs. We have had a few smaller than 20 lbs. These babies are all shades of red, both wavy and curly coats.

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 PUPPY DEPOSIT 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? *** COVID-19: All pickings will be conducted virtually at this time. 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? *** COVID-19: All pickings will be conducted virtually at this time. 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 24, 20, 18, 16, 12, 4, 3 and 2 yrs 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: First set of shots, Crate, potty training bells, nutritional supplement, toys, treats, scented blanket from littermates, training material, folder with health records, Vet check prior to going home, 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. Breeding a Lamgo Farms’ puppy will result in a fine. We are pro-breeding and we support many other breeders, we just do not sell for that purpose especially for those who intend to breed for hobby of for just the experience of having a litter. Puppies not fixed by the requested time frames will void the Health Warranty.
What sets Lamgo Farms apart from other Goldendoodle breeders? First, having 17 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, mom and daddy dogs 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.
