Welcome to this week’s update at Lamgo Farms! I’m so sorry I’m a day late posting but I’m so happy you’ve found your way here to check in and see just what is happening this week on the farm.
The update is usually posted on Monday’s with video and pictures being uploaded the Friday prior. Pictures are posted on our Facebook page and video is uploaded to our Youtube channel, “Happenings at Lamgo Farms.”
I hope each of you had a wonderful Easter Sunday! The weather was perfect and since we are still social distancing, it was just my mom and our little family of 10.
Right now we are continuing to work on our dog yards! I’m so happy with everything my husband has added for us such as new fencing, gates, and now re-seeding the lawns.
It looks like we’re heading into summer at full speed. So it’s important that we get all of our inside play areas ready for when it gets to hot to handle outside.
That reminds me to remind all of you that Doodles do LOVE being outside, but cannot handle extreme heat. So if you plan on having your pup outside during the summer, you will need to plan on having a doggie door to get back inside or have a plan to have someone drop by during the day to let puppy out to potty and then back inside.
Younger dogs cannot handle the heat as well as older doods; so make sure when we are in the high 90’s and well into the 100’s to simply let puppy out to potty and then back in. If you are hot, they are hot.
Be mindful of hot surfaces that could burn your Doodle’s paws. Concrete and rock walkways need to be tested by removing your own shoes. If it’s hot for you- it’s hot for them. Any walks during the heat of the summer should be done on grass. Plan on taking your walks in the early morning or as the sun is setting.
Here in Texas the hottest time of the day is around 5pm. So continue to check the ground even though it’s getting later in the day.
As so many of you already know. . .Doodles LOVE water and swimming. Therefore, if you do NOT want your doodle jumping into the pool, consider a fence or work on training puppy from the beginning to ask permission before jumping in to cool off. (easier said than done-but possible)
Yes, puppies know how to swim- but since they have never tried it- you need to be there with them for the first several times in the water. Once they get the hang of swimming- make sure you show them the exit! That is the most important thing for puppies. They will just swim around looking for a way out and can tire themselves to the point of drowning. So show them the way out until you see that they get it over and over again.
One final thought about summer for now- Well, besides the typical complaining you will hear from me because I’m a cold weather gal. Haha! We always say to leave out water for Doodles at all times. During the summer, your Dood will drink more than usual. This means puppies will need to potty more often.
This is completely normal. Especially for new puppies acclimating to their new environment. Never take away the water. They know what they need when it comes to hydration. So keep that water coming. Just know that for a season, you will be going outside more or letting them use the potty pad in their play area.
Ok, that will conclude my pep talk as we prepare for summer! Oh goodness. . .it will be here before we know it which means puppy season is about to get really busy!

Litters Going Home in 2021
Sanjay F1bb Pocket/Petite Goldendoodle
Sanjay delivered 2 girls and 4 boys March 7th. All are shades of red and doing wonderful!
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).
What’s Happening Now:
We are at week 4!!! The babies are actually 4 weeks and 2 days old! They are all still so tiny but plump. If you’ve followed me or any amount of time you probably know that I LOVE plump babies! Fat is good when it comes to puppies. Right now the babies are walking, and even running a bit. They are playing with each other and with toys.
We are socializing three times a day while working on sensory stimulation as well as getting them acquainted with being on their backs (a submissive position), being cuddled and learning the meaning of some basic commands such as “sit.”
The puppies received another preventative deworming this week. They will have one more prior to going home.
Each of you will be receiving emails from me this week. This will include your purchase contracts (attached will be your Health Warranty), directions to the farm (for those coming to pick up) and Picking/Pick up instructions. I estimate I will be sending these out Wednesday.
What Happens Next:
Week 5: Temperament testing
Week 6: Another preventative deworming, Begin weaning, Temperament testing results will be emailed the Wednesday prior to picking. Puppy picking, Reading material will be emailed. Invoices will be emailed.
Week 7: Crate training, basic commands. Final weaning.
Week 8: Puppies go home.
Past Sanjay Puppies. . .watch them grow
Maybelline / Beans F1b Petite Labradoodles
Maybelline did not ovulate during her last cycle therefore pregnancy did not occur. She is being watched carefully for her next cycle which could come anytime between now and May.
ON ANOTHER NOTE:
Ethel, our Mini Double Doodle (Maybelline’s daughter) is currently in the breeding process. Ethel and our Red Toy poodle, Beans have been paired together to give us Petite F1b Double Doodles!! We expect reds, maybe apricot and possible black. Ethel’s litter is posted below. Keep scrolling down.
( black, red and apricot) Wavy thinner more wire coats.
Poppins / Banks F1 Moyen Sheepadoodles
Poppins delivered 3 girls and 4 boys on Saturday, March 20th. All are doing great! The vet will be coming over on Wednesday to remove dew claws.
What’s Happening Now:
Oh this time is just flying here with these babies. They are now 2 weeks and 3 days old! They are now crawling around instead of scooting. At this age they are still sleeping and nursing most of the day.
This week the puppies received their first preventative deworming. They will receive another 2 sets before going home.
The puppies are also now being socialized twice a day by my husband, my teenage daughters and myself. They are getting sensory stimulation which assists with their overall emotional and physical health.
What Happens Next:
Week 3 I will post their first video on our Youtube channel, “Happenings at Lamgo Farms.” You will want to subscribe to this channel for your duration of waiting for your puppy to come home. Turn on the notifications to be updated when new video is posted. Right now I’ll be uploading video on Fridays prior to this update. Pictures will be uploaded to our Facebook page first and then noted here.
Week 4: Picking instructions and Directions to the farm will be emailed.
Week 5: Temperament testing
Pictures coming soon!
Emerald / Paddington
F2bb Mini Goldendoodles
Litter Reserved with a waitlist
Emerald is doing great! Her belly is nice and big and we are just watching her every movement. Her official due date was April 2nd, but much like human pregnancies, this is an estimated date. She could deliver a week after.
Right now she is “nesting.” She is gathering her blankets and bedding together which is just part of the awesome instinct given by God. The first signs of impending labor will be a body temperature drop followed by continuous panting. The panting can last several days. Active labor is noted by shaking and contractions. Then we will see our first puppy! I will post on our Facebook page once she is in active labor.
Emerald is the daughter of Cheyenne and Duke. Cheyenne is a red and Duke is white. Puppies will have both curly and wavy coats much like our Famous Duke/Daphne F2b past litters. These will mature around 25-35 lbs. Colors will be like our Charmin or Sammy match ups. They will be cream, apricot and a peanut butter color.
This is a first time breeding so we do not have past puppy pictures for this litter, but because we have been breeding these lines for some time and have been matching these colors and coat types, we have a great idea what they will look like.
Below are pictures of some of Sammy and Charmin’s puppies (both Sammy and Charmin are Duke puppies as well and resemble Emerald) for reference.
We also do not have a past litter size to indicate how many picking spots we can reserve, therefore, we will open up 6 spots and then hold a wait list to be on the safe side. Deposits will be accepted once pregnancy is confirmed.
- Waitlist: Spruill, Douma
Maybelline / Beans F1b Petite Labradoodles
Ethel / Beans F1b Petite Double Doodles
Ethel, our Mini Double Doodle (Maybelline’s daughter) has completed the breeding process. She will be having a prenatal ultrasound tomorrow to confirm pregnancy. I’ll post the results here and on our Facebook page. Ethel and our Red Toy poodle, Beans have been paired together to give us Petite F1b Double Doodles!! We expect reds, maybe apricot and possible black. Grandma Maybelline is a Chocolate Labradoodle so we could have a few chocolate as well.
( black, red and apricot) Wavy thinner more wire coats.
Snowflake / Burton
F1 English Creme Mini Goldendoodles
Snowflake’s next breeding cycle is scheduled for April 2021(cream, peanut butter) Wavy coats. Deposits will be accepted after pregnancy confirmation.

He is the son of our other famous duo, Mrs. Beasley and Mr. Bean. The F3 gives us those beautiful wavy coats without the shedding. In her last litter she did have a few curly but the coats are a soft cotton texture. The coloring is a blond/apricot, peanut butter color or a light red. Some an have white markings. These puppies mature between 20-30 lbs. This breeding is scheduled for August 2021 which would give us puppies going home in December 2021. Charmin delivered 9 puppies in her last litter. We will reserve 8 since that is her typical litter size. We will hold a wait list after that. Deposits will be requested sometime this spring.
Past puppy pictures coming.
- Saletan- double listed
- Rothstein- double listed
- Waitlist: L. Mills
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 (first 3 spots reserved) Whitzel, Ethel mini Double doodle litter, Ruby English Sheepie Doodle litter ( L. Mills), Rosita and another Parker Pocket litter 2021(all picking spots reserved. Parker was suppose to cycle at the end of January. At this time we are just waiting. If she had a missed cycle then the next one would be in June. Unfortunately Parker’s cycles are not the same length as our larger doodles, therefore we will watch her carefully between now and June. We have reserved the first spot in her 2021/22 breeding as well.)
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.
What is your pricing? Sales Tax has now been added to the price. Sales tax is an additional 6.25%. For those who have already placed your deposits, tax is included in your purchase price.

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.
