Weekly Update August 6, 2022

August 6, 2022

Welcome to this week’s UPDATE at Lamgo Farms. I’m so happy you’ve found your way here to see just what is happening with our family, farm and furry friends this week.

I know it’s been a good while since I’ve updated the blog for you. Thank you so much for your patience in waiting for me. It’s been almost three weeks now since my spinal surgery. I am home from the hospital and recovering.

Unfortunately, I started feeling better and was up and participating in our puppy pick up for Emerald’s litter when I apparently did too much. I’ve aggravated the nerves and muscles which has left me with constant muscle cramping all the way down my back down on to my toes. It’s incredibly painful.

I’m still on narcotics for pain but that is something that will be going away even if the pain does not. Because of drug abuse, those of us needing pain medication are left to deal with pain without help. I’m terrified of what I will do after my bottle becomes empty.

My surgeons are still happy with the surgery and with the help of steroids and anti-inflammatory meds, they are hopeful I’ll get back on track. I received a huge lecture from my main surgeon who reminded me I am only allowed to be up on my feet about thirty minutes at a time.

Yeah, all of you moms are laughing with me right now. Besides the pain from the actual spinal fusion, this surgery required us to use an access surgeon who opened up my stomach, moved all of the organs out of the way so my spinal surgeon could work on the back. Learning a little more about how they performed the fusion has helped me to understand why I need to be gentle and patient with my body.

The first week was pretty rough. I’m required to wear my back brace for the next six weeks. I’m also not allowed to bend over, twist or lift anything over 5 lbs. Luckily our puppies are all under 5 lbs while here!

I’m usually so busy with puppies, owners, kids and cleaning that I really haven’t had much time to think about my limitations. My focus has been on puppy picking, learning to use my grabber to pick up things off the floor, and pain management.

Today was the first time my limitations really bothered me. I had one of my littles pick up a puppy and bring her to me. She didn’t care that my hair was a mess or that I was still wearing the same t-shirt I had on two days ago. She was happy to see me and as though she knew I was injured, she snuggled her little head right under my chin as to give me a big emotional hug. It was exactly what I needed in that moment.

For those who have reached out, prayed or sent well wishes. . .thank you so very much! You have no idea how grateful I am for you.

Speaking of these little fluff balls. . .I have been concentrating on my recovery and have dropped the ball on those inquiring about our doodles. We have seven mini Goldendoodle and one petite Double Doodle available to go home next week. The Double doodle is a little girl. I have 3 female mini goldendoodles and 4 males.

Those interested please text me at 817-366-7995. The puppies are priced at $1950. A $250 deposit is required to hold a puppy. We won’t be able to entertain visitors this week as we will be flying puppies as well as sending puppies home; but you certainly can visit with the puppies when coming for pick up.

Before my surgery I inseminated several of our litters for our Fall puppy season. If successful, puppies will be going home early to mid November. Those bred are listed below. Once we confirm pregnancy I will ask for deposits for picking spots.

Now for a little housekeeping. . .

If you typed LamgoFarms.com into your browser- you were re-directed here. Our website is currently being re-designed to help streamline those wanting to know our reservation process, pricing, puppies available and to get to know us a little more.

Since I will be back to teaching the kids, the new website will be a great help for me. Thank you all for your patience as we wait to see just the new platform.

For those considering a Lamgo Farms’ Doodle- you can start your inquiry by texting me at 817-366-7995 or emailing me at info@LamgoFarms.com.

Once we have our line up for that preference- I will place your name on the list. Once breeding begins- we will request your deposit.

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?  Please send me an email to Info@LamgoFarms.com outlining your preferences such as size, color, coat type (wavy vs curly), gender, and any special circumstances I need to be made aware of for your situation.

I’ll need your name, email address and phone number. Once you are ready, you can make your deposit payment by choosing the PUPPY DEPOSIT button below. Deposits are non refundable but are moveable from one litter to another.

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. Regular puppy pickings will commence this coming Summer 2022!!! 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 25, 20, 19, 17, 12, 5, 4 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.  We also send home a 30 day free enrollment with Trupanion Pet Health insurance.

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 $550.  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?

Our current pricing is: $1950-$2100. Please Text Sandi at 817-366-7995 for current Pricing details.

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.
