December 31, 2020
Welcome back to another update at Lamgo Farms! Happy New Year everyone!!! I’m so excited you’ve stopped by to see just what’s happening on the farm.
I know we are all breathing a little sigh of both relief and reflection on all we have been through over the past twelve months. I alternate between moments of cherished hope for what is to come, exhaustion over what has been–and then there is the reality of the moment. Just keep swimming.
God holds us close and hears our prayers. I know sometimes He can seem silent. But the fact that He listens and hears and cries with us is what keeps me holding His hand. Well, most of the time it’s His hand holding mine. But through it all. . .He is my hope.
For myself and my family, we have been taking a break during the holidays from most email, phone calls and messages. Of course we still have puppies and chores but we are taking it easy and spending some much needed time with the kids.
I know we work where we live and we of course are with our kids all day. But the phone and computer tend to take a front seat during the busy of puppy season, especially our past season, and I know our children are needing more than the “left overs” of mommy.
I will be returning to my normal online presence on Monday, January 4th. For those inquiring or who have inquired- I will be answering your questions at that time. For those just now inquiring- please email me at info@LamgoFarms.com.
I would like to take a moment to thank everyone who send us Christmas cards and messages! Thank you so very much. I plan to take a day to respond to each of you. Your thoughtfulness has warmed my heart.
I am looking forward to a busy and awesome new year of puppies, new lines to announce and of course because I like to keep things teetering on the impossible. . .another book hopefully to be released in 2021.
Now, before I actually reach 2021, let’s scroll on down to see just what is happening in each of your litters. . .
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
from all of our family at Lamgo Farms.
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.
Litters Going Home in 2021
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.
What’s Happening Now:
Look at these babies! They are all growing and those little personalities are really starting to show for us. I’ll know more next week especially after temperament testing.
I’ll be emailing directions to the farm and puppy picking instructions which will confirm picking and pick up appointment times as well as give some important instructions such as when your puppy’s next set of shots will be due, etc.
What Happens Next:
Week 5: Temperament Testing followed by Puppy picking, January 9th.
During week 6 we will begin placing puppies in a crate with a buddy for naptime during the day while mama plays. This lets them get use to the crate without the stress of being alone in a new place. Once they are fully use to the crate at week 7, we will move them by themselves. Keep in mind, this crate goes home with puppy. If flying, you have the the soft carrier puppy will fly in. We can make arrangements to ship a hard crate just like we’re using for a small fee.

F2b Mini Goldendoodles
Boston’s pregnancy has been confirmed! Her due date is January 28. Keep in mind that much like human pregnancies, puppies can come a little before or even a week after that due date. If born at the time expected, they would go home around March 27th. This date is not set in stone. We’ll know as soon as the puppies are born.
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.
- Holleman- double listed at this time
- Trevino- double listed
- waitlist: Hicks, Wacasey
Sanjay F1bb Pocket/Petite Goldendoodles
Sanjay is currently in the breeding process. We will do another 2 inseminations and then I will have an estimated due date. If successful, puppies would go home around May 1st.
I will be contacting those who have already inquired or are on wait lists before opening any spots to the general public. Hopefully by the final week in January I will know for sure if we have open spots.
We expect both a pocket range of 10-15 lbs and petite range of 16-18 lbs. (Cream, Apricot, and red coloring in both curly and wavy coats. The majority are curly).
Past Sanjay Puppies. . .watch them grow
Snowflake / Burton
F1 English Creme Mini Goldendoodles
Well, Snowflake’s pregnancy situation has kept us on our toes this season. After breaking the news that her insemination did not work, we learned that she was indeed expecting. She was HUGE, so we were very surprised when she delivered just one large baby. This little girl, unfortunately passed away prior to birth. We are so sad to have to break this news to our owners and keep them on a rollercoaster emotionally.
We believe as we did originally, that our timing for insemination was off and she ovulated late giving us only one. She did not have any difficulty with delivery or recovery. She is back playing and acting herself. Physically and emotionally she is doing great, therefore, we will attempt another insemination in April 2021. Knowing her delayed ovulation we will be better prepared this time around.
Those on this list can opt to stay or move to another list or both to insure you keep a spot in the case of another missed insemination.
We are of course so very sorry to our owners who were looking forward to a puppy now, but we are thankful that we can try again after a four month delay. I know why so many of you choose a Snowflake puppy. For this reason, we will be breeding Snowflake to our Bison in the near future to give us more White English Creme Retrievers for the future.
(cream, peanut butter) Wavy coats. Deposits will be accepted after pregnancy confirmation.

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 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? *** 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.

Do you offer discounts: Yes, we offer a $150 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. 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.
Pictures and Video: When we do have puppies. . .Pictures will be uploaded 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.
