Welcome to this week’s update at Lamgo Farms. I’m so excited you’ve found your way here to see just what is happening in our Family, on our Farm and with our fluffy and furry friends.
As many of you saw, and some of you even experience; we were blessed with a beautiful blanket of snow this past Sunday. Being from Colorado, I truly miss this part of life.
It’s not just the snowfall itself, but the sunshine prior to the storm followed by a sudden build up of gray in the sky. The wind and the smell of impending “winter” truly makes my heart sing.
It was hard to believe the forecast when the day before was so sunny and warm. I was lost in the zone of our puppy picking on Saturday when my mom showed up with snow gloves for my three littles. It reminded me of when she would get us ready for school ahead of Colorado’s ever changing weather.
We would go to school in the morning in short sleeves and flip flops and walk out at 2:50 pm needing winter coat and boots.
I love everything about Winter. Even when we are doing it with animals, water troughs, bales of hay and delicate puppies. It’s just a little part of what makes me. . .me. I think that rubs off on the doodles as well. They LOVE their cold weather.
I absolutely loved all of the many doodle in snow pictures send my way. It was a magical day for many of us who live where snow is a once in a century event.
Now much like when I was little, I am already dreaming and planning for our garden, flowers and as far as the eye can see green grass.
We are actually having a little lull in our puppy schedule as soon as Rosita’s babies go home next week. So we are ready to get the farm Spring ready!
But before that happens, 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.
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.
What’s Happening Now:
Well, this is it guys. The puppies are now fully weaned and we have split them up into 2 groups of 3. They still have playmates but are no longer a “pack.”
We are working on the “sit” and “come” command and the puppies are now taking their naps in a crate with a buddy. We will move them to their own crate next week. This gradual method keeps them from enduring unnecessary stress by being moved alone too soon.
What Happens Next:
-First set of shots will be given on Tuesday and the Vet will be checking out all puppies on Thursday prior to going home. Those flying will be emailed these papers since your puppy packet was already shipped.
Purchase contracts and reading material have already been emailed. Next up is your invoice. I will be working on those sometime Thursday or Friday.
You can see our past Rosita puppies by visiting our Instagram page’s “Rosita” Highlight.
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.
- waitlist: Hicks, Wacasey
Sanjay F1bb Pocket/Petite Goldendoodles
Sanjay has completed the breeding process. We will wait 2 1/2 weeks now and confirm pregnancy with an ultrasound. 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).
- waitlist: Bigham, Vinson, Horton

Maybelline has had one insemination. I’m waiting at this point as I’m not entirely convinced she is ovulating at this time. We are checking her daily and I’ll hopefully have more of an update next week. Sometimes our girls can give us false heats. We will know soon! If successful, she would be due around the beginning of March which would give us puppies going home the beginning of May.

List and pictures coming
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.
The end of our 2021 season will consist of another Jasmine Petite red litter, Ethel mini Double doodle litter, Ruby English Sheepie Doodle litter and another Parker Pocket litter.
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.

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.
