June 8, 2021
Welcome to this week’s UPDATE at Lamgo Farms! I’m so excited you’ve found your way here to see just what is going on with our puppies and farm this week.
We are literally surrounded by puppies this week! It’s a total fluff zone. I have to say at first I thought I was imagining things but after talking to Phil he agrees that the puppies we have right now are the most chill and laid back we’ve ever had.
Having 5 litters at once has happened to us a few times before so we have prepared from experience. But these chill babies are making it all run smooth each day.
Don’t get me wrong- it’s busy! Each litter has their special stage where we need to socialize appropriately as well as work on each week’s goals. So we are fully scheduled throughout the day. But having such laid back babies does make it all run smoothly.
The litters are staggered in a way so we have puppies going home next week before the younger litters are in a stage that needs more training and hands on. It works so much better that way.
Speaking of puppies going home. . .we have 2 males and 1 female Sheepadoodle available! The Dark Green boy, Yellow boy and Light Pink girl are all ready to go home next week June 17.
**For those inquiring, text me, Sandi, at 817-366-7995. For those wanting to find out more about how to get on a list- just email the following to firstname.lastname@example.org.
-Name and Preferences (timing, size (pocket 8-15 lbs, petite 16-20 lbs, mini 20-30 lbs, medium 30-45 lbs) color (red, peanut butter, apricot, cream, black) coat type (wavy vs curly) or any specific litter you’ve seen already. Also let me know if you have any special needs for this puppy such as service or therapy.
If you are here in Texas then you are probably rejoicing like us that we have a few days of clear skies this week. Of course, it comes with a side order of 100 plus degree weather, but hey, even I am willing to take the high temps to get a chance to dry up at bit.
Speaking of high temps- just a reminder that doodles, especially puppies, cannot be left out in the hot temperatures. If you are leaving your dog at home during the day and would like to keep them outside- you’ll need to have a doggie door that allows them back inside to an air conditioned environment.
When it comes to puppies- keep in mind that they are unable to regulate their temperature in extreme climates. So super cold or super hot temps are life threatening. So after they go outside to potty and play for a bit- they need to get back inside.
Also- remember to keep water available at all times inside and out throughout the summer. Keep up the hydration.
Of course, that means there will be more potty breaks- but if you’re needing a little rest from going in and out of the house- you can always use the potty pad in their special area. That is still a “win” for us.
Since this update is late this week- I will simply upload and replace pictures this weekend on the update here without changing actual updates on what is happening.
I won’t hold you up any longer. Scroll on down to see just what is happening in each of your litters this week!

Litters Going Home in 2021
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 Dark Green Boy. Yellow Boy and Light Pink Girl are available
What’s Happening Now:
We have concluded the selection process for this litter and have 2 boys remaining. The largest of the litter, Dark Green collar boy and Yellow Collar boy. Right now everyone is now weaned and we have split them up into groups of 3 to give them extra room and learn to do life away from the “pack.”
The puppies are now crate training with a buddy but next week they will be moved by themselves.
Each of you will be receiving your email with Reading material which has our crate training procedures which helps you a little with everything you need to help you through those first few days as well as folders of training material to assist you throughout puppyhood.
What Happens Next:
The puppies will receive their first set of shots during week 7. They will continue working on their sit and come commands as well as crate training.
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:
Puppy picking is almost here! I will be emailing you your picking schedule along with your Temperament testing results today (Wednesday). I will have new video uploaded and new pictures posted to our facebook page on Wednesday evening. Your Temperament testing results will be emailed on Wednesday evening as well.
At this time the first pick of the litter is favoring Dark Green collar boy. If he does not go first, he will be chosen second. It’s a good idea to have a back up if he was your first pick.
Right now the puppies are still with mama and just spending a little more time away from her throughout the day. They are playing with toys as well as with each other.
Next week is another preventative deworming and concentration on the “sit” command.
What Happens Next:
Week 5: Temperament testing Results / Puppy Picking
Week 6: Weaning process. Emails with Reading Material for training and preparation for puppy.
Week 7: Focus on Crate Training, Sit command and socialization
Week 8: Going Home!

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!!
What’s Happening Now:
Will you just look at these babies? I am just so excited about this litter. Ethel and Beans have given us the most beautiful features. The Lab eyes and ears with the Golden Retriever love added with that poodle non shedding curly and wavy coat is everything I wanted in a puppy.
This litter is just so sweet and loving. I am so excited to watch them grow. Ethel’s last litter with Paddington has been one of our best yet. Ethel is just like her mama, Maybelline in that she is gentle yet a playful loyal friend.
Right now the puppies are getting socialized with not only our teenagers, my husband and myself but they are now old enough to be socialized with our younger children who are 5, 4 and 2 yrs old. They are now being handled by almost every age group.
This week you will receive your Directions to the farm for those picking up as well as your puppy picking and pick up schedule.
What Happens Next:
Week 5: Temperament testing with results emailed the Wednesday prior to picking.
Week 6: Puppy picking, Crate training with buddy
Week 7: Reading material email, Continued crate training
Week 8: puppies go home!
This list may end up with a few openings.
Jasmine/Beans Petite Goldendoodles
Jasmine delivered 6 girls and 3 boys on May 21st. All Red. We have some wavy and curly in this litter.
Jasmine is one of our Mrs. Beasley and Burton babies.
We will have puppy picking on Saturday, July 3rd. Puppies will then go home Saturday, July 17.
What’s Happening Now:
I’m always a bit amazed at the size of our pockets and small petites. After working with standard Sheepadoodles and mini Sheepie Doodles, they are just so incredibly tiny but are walking around like the pro’s.
Jasmine’s puppies have always been a favorite of our owners. You will soon see why. They have the sweetest disposition but are also playful. Don’t let the small size fool you. They play! I always tell people- they don’t know they’re little.
Right now the puppies are just now moving around a bit but are still spending a lot of time nursing and sleeping. Those spurts of energy are short but will get longer and longer over the next few weeks.
During week 2 the puppies received their first preventative deworming. They will continue to do so every 2 weeks until they go home.
Week 3 is when we begin their first food called Gruel. This is our combination of our premium puppy food, milk replacer, nutritional supplement and warm water and blend it all to an oatmeal consistency. They LOVE it!
What Happens Next:
I’m super behind in emails this week. I’ll be sending you all your welcome letters with your picking and pick up schedule as well as just what you can expect over the next 5 weeks.
Week 4: you will receive your email with directions to the farm for those picking up your puppies.

Chaquita / Burton F2bb Red English Mini Goldendoodles
Chaquita delivered 3 boys and 3 girls on Wednesday, June 2nd. I am working on contacting those on her list.
We have several double listed on this list along with others so once I hear back from the first 6 I will move on down the list and let each of you know if we have a picking spot open.
(red, peanut butter, some cream or apricot). Wavy coats, more blocky face.
What’s Happening Now:
I promise your welcome letters are on the way! The Vet was by on Monday to remove Dew claws. I always wait until after that first Vet visit before I place their collars on. So that will be coming up in their next pictures so you can identify everyone.
Right now the puppies’ eyes and ears are closed. They will begin opening around day 14. They use their sense of smell to locate mama. These first few weeks they spend their time nursing and sleeping. And boy are these babies nursing. Those tummies are FULL and chunky!

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.
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 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.
