April 20, 2021
Welcome to this week’s update on the farm! I’m excited to have you visit to see just what is happening with our family, with our furry friends and with our farm.
I’m so sorry this update is a day late. Yesterday the babies (not babies anymore but that’s what we call them) were having a really hard day and just needed my full undivided attention.
We have a lot of days like this and I’m realizing that right now I just need to keep my attention on them and work in my online time when I can. I know this is a temporary season in my life where I am adjusting to meet their needs and appreciate everyone’s understanding my absence online.
Our Poppins and Sanjay puppies have been great therapy for us all. The littles are enjoying playing with them while we socialize. Even though we begin socializing at 2 weeks, we limit that stage of life for our older kids.
Speaking of “Seasons” and “Stages” of life- that brings me to remind everyone that the puppy stage is just that. . .a stage.
I want everyone taking home a puppy for the first time to have the preparation and realization that puppies are much like toddlers. They get into everything left out. . .they love charge cords, pillows, shoes, glasses, kids’ toys, tissues, food of any kind, plants and furniture.
It’s not all that bad, but know that if you need a break from hovering over puppy or need to leave for a while, work or sleep. . .turn to your puppy play pen or special area to keep them safe and your belongings protected.
Your puppy area should have potty pads, a bed, water bowl, lots of toys and somewhere near, a radio or television left on to keep some background noise to keep them from feeling lonely.
Once you choose your puppy you’ll be receiving some reading material with our crate training and puppy schedule to assist you with many details dealing with all aspects of the puppy stage.
It’s a lot of fun but a lot of work. Just know that for our puppy owners, we are just a text away to help you in any way we can!
Now, let’s scroll down and take a look at these adorable puppies and 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.
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:
Puppies have all been chosen! I love finding out just which owner belongs to each individual puppy. Now the real work begins. This week is the official weaning week and the week we begin crate training. Each puppy has a buddy in their crate during nap time and morning clean up time. Once the puppies are use to their crates they will be moved by themselves during crate training times.
Each of you should have received your purchase contracts today. Invoices will be emailed next along with some Reading material to get you prepared for the first weeks home.
What Happens Next:
Week 7: Crate training, basic commands.
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. She is showing some signs of impending cycle right now. I’ll keep you informed.
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:
Look at these little plumpers!!! Oh they are just so very soft and sweet. Those little personalities are shining through. Temperament testing will be conducted this Wednesday and the results will be emailed late Wednesday evening or sometime Thursday. I will try for Wednesday though.
They are still eating gruel right now but also eating hard kibble. Next week we will begin the weaning process.
What Happens Next:
After puppy picking you will receive your purchase contracts, Reading material and your invoices.
Crate training with a buddy will continue and then they will move to their crates alone during nap time.
Pictures coming soon!

F2bb Mini Goldendoodles
Litter Reserved with a waitlist
Emerald delivered 4 girls and 4 boys on Thursday, April 8th. Mama and babies are all doing well!
What’s Happening Now:
These babies are just awesome! Everyone is doing well and getting chunky. The vet has already been by to remove dew claws and they all have their collars on now.
The girls: Dark Pink, Light Pink, Turquoise and Purple
The boys: Orange, Yellow, Dark Green, and Lime Green
I know this update is a few days late so I will be posting new pictures on Friday on our Facebook page. Eyes are already starting to open up for us!
This week the puppies will receive their first preventative deworming. Once eyes are open we will begin sensory stimulation. The puppies will be socialized by us at least three times a day. From the time they enter this world, they are held and loved on. As they get older we socialize a little different and more often. We feel this is the best start for our doodles.
What Happens Next:
Week 3 is the week we start our videos! You can subscribe to our Youtube channel, “Happenings at Lamgo Farms” to see new video that is uploaded every Friday. The link to these videos are also found here on Monday’s but if you subscribe then you will be notified when the next video is uploaded even if I am late on the update here.
Pictures are uploaded every Friday on our Facebook Page. This Friday we will post individual pictures of the puppies if all eyes are open. You can also find those pictures here next week.
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.

She has been moved to the nursery now and is being watched as she could deliver any moment!

Past puppy pictures coming.
- Saletan- double listed
- Rothstein- double listed
- Waitlist: L. Mills, Whitzel
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. 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.

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.
