May 26, 2021
Welcome back to this week’s update at Lamgo Farms! I’m so excited you’ve found your way here to see just what is happening with our farm, family and furry friends.
If you live in Texas or have seen the local weather lately then you know we are basically sitting in water after 40 days and 40 nights of rain. Well, that may be a slight exaggeration but we are having flooding conditions and it is expected to rain again in the next few days.
Here on the farm- rain equals mud. And mud equals dirty dogs, kids, clothes, floors, and one slightly crazed mama. Who am I kidding- I’m going nuts.
Yesterday the sun came out for a brief visit and the littles went out to play while I did an insemination. Playing for them meant “jumping in muddy puddles.” My youngest children watch Peppa Pig and Peppa is always jumping in muddy puddles. And since there is nothing but standing water with mud- they had a blast.
The only problem with Peppa Pig’s “jumping in muddy puddles” is that they never address the clean up process. You never see mommy pig doing laundry or Peppa crying because she has mud in her hair.
Of course when the kids jump in mud then the dogs must follow. We get all of our dogs groomed about every three months. The entire crew gets cleaned. I’ve been avoiding having to sent that text to our groomer to tell her what the dogs have been doing the past few days.
Maybe I’ll just send a picture. In all seriousness- we really need it to dry up here. Not just for us but for all of the farmers, ranchers, and people who rely on dry weather to work.
For those coming next weekend to pick up puppies- we pray you will find the house surrounded by all of this tall grass. Phil actually in a moment of frustration over the grass and excitement over the sun shining – tried to MOW the lawn yesterday.
That brings us to the present. I’m currently writing this in the car as we are running an errand to get a part to fix a water spout that was accidentally run over with the lawn mower that was being used in 8 inches of water.
Yeah I’m about ready for some boring days around here.
What isn’t boring is our upcoming schedule! We have so much news this week for you to check out. For one- we have a surprise litter with a few open picking spots. Next we have open spots in our Sheepadoodle and English Sheepie litters.
We are excited to announce that Maybelline is expecting and finally. . .Snowflake and Parker are in the breeding process!!!

Litters Going Home in 2021
Emerald / Paddington
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:
Puppies have all been chosen in this litter! Now the real work begins. The puppies are fully weaned and Emerald is back in the house and out of the nursery. The babies are doing great!
They are playing and still all together as of now. BUT this weekend they will be split up into 2 groups of 4.
They are currently with a buddy in their crates are are actually doing really well.
Thursday is vaccination day!
What Happens Next:
The final week puppies will be moved to their own crate to prepare to go home. We will continue socializing and working on our “sit” and “come” commands.
Those flying have been contacted about some preliminary flight dates and times. I will be texting you exact flight information later this week. Puppy packets have been shipped as well as crates from Chewy.com.
For those picking up your puppy: you will receive your puppy pick up instructions this week. This is just a reminder of pick up times and procedure.
Lina / Banks F1 Standard Sheepadoodles
Lina has 4 boys and 5 girls born on Thursday, April 22nd. This litter is scheduled to go home June 17, 18 and 19.
The Girl collar colors: Turquoise, Dark Pink, Light Pink, Purple and Lime Green
The Boy collar colors: Yellow, Orange, Dark Green and Red
(Mostly black with a few white markings) Wavy coats.
What’s Happening Now:
PICKING THIS SATURDAY!!
Look at these babies! I just love my Sheepadoodles. They are beyond soft and just so very sweet and fun. Right now they are eating gruel as well as some hard kibble. They are still with mama and nursing on demand. Over the next week we will let Lina have more alone time and simply nurse a few times a day as the puppies continue to eat hard kibble. Once all teeth are in we will remove her from the nursery.
We like to wean slowly so puppies get continued contact with mama and mama’s milk supply naturally lessons to make sure she does not have any uncomfortable issues.
What Happens Next:
Picking is this Saturday!!! An email will be sent out along with your temperament testing results with a reminder of your virtual appointment times listed.
We still have a few picking spots available in this litter. I’ll know on Saturday just which puppies are remaining.
New video will be posted tomorrow evening and new pictures will be posted to our Facebook page.

Ruby/Burton English Sheepie Doodles
Ruby delivered 4 boys and 5 girls on May 3rd. These puppies will go home June 26. Welcome letters have been emailed.
Ruby is a Golden Sheepie. Her mom is our white English Golden Retriever, Snowflake and her dad is our Old English Sheepdog, Banks. The sire of this litter is our little red toy poodle, Burton. Ruby’s first litter was last year. She delivered 3 puppies. One black, one white and one red. All absolutely beautiful and very fluffy. We kept the red one, Rex. He is the largest but is still a miniature size. They resemble a wavy doodle.
The Girl Collar colors: Purple, Light pink, Dark pink, Lime green and Turqoise.
The Boy Collar colors: Orange, Red, White and Dark Green (he will be chosen early)
Almost all have white on the chest and a few have white on the top of the head as well. These are non shedding soft cotton wavy coats.
What’s Happening Now:
The puppies are still nursing and sleeping a lot but we have had our first video and you can see they are starting to show those little personalities.
This week the puppies will start their first food called “gruel.” This is our own mixture of our premium puppy food, milk replacer, nutritional supplement and warm water all blended to an oatmeal consistency. They LOVE this! They start out by stepping in it, liking it off of each other and basically just diving in.
What Happens Next:
Week 4 we will send out directions to the farm along with puppy picking instructions.
Week 5: Temperament testing

Past Ruby/Burton Puppies
Ethel / Beans F1b Petite Double Doodles
Ethel, our Mini Double Doodle (Maybelline’s daughter) delivered 4 girls and 3 boys on Wednesday, May 5. Ethel and our Red Toy poodle, Beans have been paired together to give us Petite F1b Double Doodles!!
The Dark reds are the girls and the light reds are the boys. There are 2 girls that could have shorter, more straight coats. I’ll need another 3 weeks to know for sure. There is one boy who has a thick but more straight coat. All others have a lot of wave to them so they are either the traditional wavy doodle coats or they are curly.
Welcome letters will be emailed sometime toward the end of next week.
This list may end up with a few openings.
Jasmine/Beans Petite Goldendoodles
Well folks. . .this is our big surprise. Jasmine has delivered 6 girls and 3 boys. All healthy! All red and all little. The Vet has already been by and removed dew claws. Jasmine is being a great mama.
Although this breeding was unintentional- we are happy it was with the correct and intended sire. Sometimes these things happen especially when you have little dogs that will squeeze through any spot to get to their gal.
Jasmine was suppose to rest this cycle and breed her next cycle giving us puppies around Christmas to January. This could be a blessing for many wanting her litter now but it could be a problem for those wanting to have a puppy from her in January.
These puppies were born May 21st. We will have puppy picking on Saturday, July 3rd. Puppies will then go home Saturday, July 17.
I’ll post new pictures this week showing genders and collar colors. Congratulations everyone!

( I have placed many of you on our Ethel litter which has already been born just in case you prefer her litter.)
( black, red and apricot) Wavy thinner more wire coats.

Parker / Kevin Pocket Goldendoodles
Yay!!! We are so excited that Parker’s cycle has finally started! We have decided to breed her to our new little Kevin. We had another sire in mind but we were not satisfied with his sperm count and quality. Therefore our beautiful toy poodle, Kevin will be the sire of this litter. He is white with brown markings. The “red” gene is also recessive in both parents, therefore we could get some reds as well. I’m so excited to see these babies! As always, we are praying over each puppy and family. I know you all have been waiting so very long for them.
We will begin the breeding process this weekend. Once completed we will wait another 3 weeks to confirm pregnancy.
If successful- puppies would go home around the beginning of October.
Bella/Paddington F2b English Creme Mini/Medium Goldendoodles
(cream, apricot, some peanut butter). Mostly wavy coats. Any curly coats are often a cotton and not a fleece texture. Scheduled to breed around June with puppies going home between Sept/Oct 2021.

F3 Mini Goldendoodles
Litter Reserved (wait list available as we have several double listed)
Charmin is the daughter of our famous duo Duke and Daphne. She is an F2b Mini Goldendoodle. The sire of this litter is Paddington Bear. 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, 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%. ($131.00) For those who have already placed your deposits, tax is included in your purchase price.
All puppies are priced at $2100 with the Pockets being slightly more at $2400 plus sales tax which is $131.25 for a total of $2,231. The Deposit does go towards the balance.
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.
