June 21, 2019
Tomorrow is puppy picking at the farm and we are always so excited for new puppy owners to meet their puppies for the first time. This is one of the many fun parts for us! For many of our owners, the wait for this day has been a long journey. Some have waited years to get their puppy and we always pray that each owner is matched up with the puppy of their dreams.
I know we have a few of you who have just joined a list and are waiting for paperwork. Thank you for your patience. Once puppy picking is over tomorrow, I can concentrate on the next litters coming up.
At this time we are breeding a few litters that have not yet been announced. We will wait to confirm pregnancy on these litters and then open them up for deposits. One is our Brie litter. She is in great health and she will have one final litter. The other is a momma that we have not yet introduced to you. She is another one of our Daphne and Burton daughters. She is a about the size of Parker (who is also a Duke and Burton baby) and was bred to Paddington to give us a nice red wavy coat. This is a Petite litter. We already have a few names on this list but will open up the remainder once pregnancy is confirmed.
It’s gonna be a super busy summer for us! That’s ok, I like busy and we are ready to watch those who have been waiting so long- get to take home a puppy!
Speaking of summertime, I want to address another Summertime puppy concern- Ear infections! The humidity of the south and the fun time playing in water brings us to the common doodle issue of ear infections. Here is a link to my post about preventing and treating ear infections in the summer! Prevention is key!
As some of you already know, I have been suffering this week from a bulging or possibly a herniated disk in my low back. This has cause terrible sciatica which is intense pain from the low back through the back side, down the back of the thigh and all the way down to the ankle. It’s like a giant cramp all the way down preventing me from bending over, walking, or sitting comfortably. I’ve been visiting several doctors and have started medicine to assist in my recovery. However, it is a long process and we are trying to avoid surgery. So please. pray with us for healing and for pain relief. My sweet mom has been my right hand man taking care of the babies while I heal and visit doctors.
My awesome boys and husband have been socializing the puppies, tending to chores and playing with the dogs on top of taking each in for grooming this week. They have been working incredibly hard and I am so proud of their work ethic and dedication to our family business.
My two oldest girls have taken over the kitchen and have been doing all of the dishes and keeping the kitchen tidy for all of us. All of the kids have been pitching in with playing with the toddlers and the baby. I couldn’t ask for better children. God has been so good even in my extreme pain and inability to do all that I normally do. Apparently He is forcing me to let go a little of my control and let others help me. So now that I see that, I’m ready for God to take away this pain. Haha! But for now, let’s scroll on down to see just what is happening in each of your litters.
I’ll see you all on the other side of the miracle!
2019 Breeding Schedule
Here is what we have now and have planned: scroll down to the FAQ section to see how to place a deposit, pricing and to answer many questions.
Planned 2019 Breedings
(2020 is still being planned)
F2b Petite Goldendoodles
Boston delivered 2 girls and 3 boys on Saturday, May 11th
These are petites. They will be smaller than our miniatures but a tad larger than our pockets. 18-27 lbs average. Some have been smaller than 18 lbs. For those double listed- you can stay on both of your lists until puppies are a week old. Then we’ll ask you to choose your litter.
What’s Happening Now:
Puppy picking is tomorrow already! I can’t believe it. I can’t wait for you all to see these babies. Everyone is doing great and the puppies are now fully weaned and eating hard kibble. Right now we are concentrating on socializing and just loving on these babies. Everyone should have received a reminder for picking via email. For those choosing long distance- I will text you at your appointment time and then we can FaceTime or send extra video or just chat.
I will be texting or emailing as puppies are chosen so you know just who is remaining.
What Happens Next:
After picking the puppies will receive another deworming and their first set of shots. Sunday will be a down day and the puppies will just play and sleep all day. Monday will begin the real work with the introduction to crate training. We will have a buddy for everyone so they do not feel scared of their crate. We’ll have 3 to one crate and 2 to the other. We’ll do this for a few days for nap time and then we’ll move everyone to their individual kennels. At that time, they will receive their scented item. Week 7 will be our final video as we will spend week 8 preparing for puppies to go home.
Below are your picking times for Saturday, June 22nd.
- Hardoin- female preference – 10am
- Yedlin- female preference, will take a male- 11am
- Jeter- 12 noon

Past Puppy Pictures:
Mini Double Doodles
Maybelline is expecting and due June 22nd with puppies expected to go home around August 17th. These dates are an estimation that can change depending on exactly when puppies are born.
Maybelline is doing great and has been nesting. She did a little panting for me today, but so far, she is not yet in labor. Once she is in full labor, I will announce it on our Facebook page. Once they are born, I will email each of you and will send pictures at the 24 hour mark.
A Double doodle is the cross between our mini Chocolate Labradoodle and our Red Mini Goldendoodle. The coat is thinner and tends to have a cotton or wire texture. Puppies tend to have more of a Labradoodle coat.
- Cowder- darker coloring
(past Maybelline/Paddington puppy- black turning dark chocolate- wavy coat)
(past Maybelline/Paddington puppy- red with white markings- wavy coat)
F2b English Mini/Medium Goldendoodles
Bella is doing great and will be moved to the nursery sometime tomorrow night. Her area is ready for her! As soon as she is showing signs of labor, I will make an announcement on our Facebook page. Signs of impending labor are nesting, followed by panting and then shaking. Contractions will begin and then we will start seeing puppies! The nesting can last for weeks while the panting can last several days. Once we see a temperature drop below 100 degrees, we will see labor within 24 hours. She is due June 30th. Depending on exactly when she delivers, puppies should go home around August 24th.

Jasmine has been paired with our new little “Beans.” Not to be confused with our retired, Mr. Bean. Beans is a miniature dark red poodle. Because Jasmine is a wavy coat- we are using Beans to make sure we have the desired coats and colors. We do expect mostly wavy coats in this breeding. I’m so excited to see these puppies! Both Jasmine aka “Red” and Beans are dark reds.

Just listing here so we don’t forge the “list.” We will know more on dates after her next cycle is complete. If she has plenty of puppies in her cycle prior to this, first available will be made to those on this list. At this time, I’m closing this list for further deposits until after our Spring breeding is complete.

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? 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. Then go to our pricing/payment page at LamgoFarms.com to place your deposit of $250. There is a $5 PayPal processing fee that will be added to your total.
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? 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? 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 22, 18, 17, 15, 11, 3, 2 and 8 months 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: Crate, potty training bells, nutritional supplement, toys, treats, scented blanket from littermates, training material, folder with health records, 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.

Do you offer discounts: Yes, we offer a $300 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. Puppies not fixed by the requested time frames will void the Health Warranty.
What sets Lamgo Farms apart from other Goldendoodle breeders? First, having 14 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 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 in our photo gallery at photos.lamgofarms.com and on our Facebook page.
