February 10, 2021
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 this week with our doodles, farm and family.
It you viewed my latest video on our YouTube channel (Happenings at Lamgo Farms) then you are already familiar with what we’ve been doing the past few days. As winter finally hits North Texas, we are experiencing temperatures in the single digits along with precipitation which in southern terms is basically an ice storm.
Already this evening the mist falling from the sky is immediately freezing on our trees, cars, walk ways and making travel very slippery and dangerous.
What does this mean for the farm? Well, we are use to winter weather from both Colorado and now Texas. I have to admit, people are always asking me how cold it gets in Colorado. And I tell them that 30 degrees in Colorado is warmer than 30 degrees in Texas due to the humidity.
The Humidity and wind here just pierces through to the bones. If you live here then you know it. I can remember stepping outside back home in negative degree weather which made my nose hairs freeze. But that was nothing to tonights 28 degrees that feels more like 18.
We are use to winter prep here in Texas now. The water tanks get heaters and if they are too large, then we get to break ice in the morning. Heaters are on all water faucets outside, heat lamps and plenty of hay are out for the chickens and ducks. Don’t worry- they don’t come in contact with each other so no concern for a possible fire.
The horses have plenty of hay to bed down in the barn if they get too cold. They are free to go in and out as they please. The barn cat is now well, inside for a while and the dogs are of course all in their comfy warm beds inside.
We have prepped and are now enjoying warm feet by the fire while warming from the inside out with a hot bowl of Colorado Green Chili. Yummy, Yum Yum!
The new puppies are all doing so good. I’m finding it more and more difficult to let these babies go. I guess it’s time for another big season to keep my mind busy.
I’ve updated the picking lists as best I could down below. Please keep in mind that my phone messages and email do fill up fast all day long so if I have made any mistakes or missed you- just let me know and I’ll make the correction. Sometimes I make a not or message back and another 10 messages come in before I can make proper notes.
I’m working on new ways to make that more simple for fewer mistakes but for now, just let me know if I’ve missed you in any way.
I have returned a handful of emails today but I know there are still more of you waiting on a response for me. I’ll continue to tackle email tomorrow.
If you would like to hold a picking spot in a litter- just email your name, mailing address, and phone number along with any preferences you have for your puppy to firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll put your name on the list and then we can talk to make sure that is a good fit.
At least you won’t miss a picking spot while waiting for me to answer you back. If you are trying to get your puppy as a surprise, just let me know and I’ll simply put “hold” in the spot.
Once we know you are on your preferred list and it is a good fit, I will then ask for your deposit. I’d rather take you off the list later than have you miss an opportunity because I cannot get back to you right away.
I’m blown away by how many of you are coming back for your second or third doodles this season. I have your names written down and will add them to the lists tomorrow. So you will be receiving another notification of an update- but it will just be me making some changes for our owners coming back. For a few of you- I’ve already place “hold” in a spot. I’ll be getting back to you soon. Thank you for your patience! I am so grateful for each of you and humbled that you have chosen Lamgo Farms once again.
Ok, I’m a little late getting this published tonight and it’s officially the 11th which is my mom, Eleanor’s, 79th birthday!!! My working late this evening was due to celebrating her birthday a little early as we know we cannot get together tomorrow with the weather.
So it was Colorado Green Chili and Angel food cake tonight! Happy Birthday Mom! We love you and are so thankful for all of your help with the babies while we raise these puppies!

Litters Going Home in 2021
F2b Mini Goldendoodles
Boston delivered 4 little girls on Sunday, January 17th. it looks like we may have 2 curly and 2 wavy. Puppies will be going home on my Birthday of all days. . .March 13.
What’s Happening Now:
Oh these little chunky babies are the sweetest! These weeks are going by way too quickly for me. They are waddling around, talking and even playing with each other a little bit. This week they will be starting their very first food called Gruel.
Gruel is our little mixture of premium puppy food, puppy milk replacer, nutritional supplement and warm water all blended together to an oatmeal consistency. They absolutely love it!
This week we will continue concentrating on socializing each puppy several times a day using sensory stimulation. From the beginning, they experience hands on human attention.
You will notice our first video has been posted on our Youtube Channel. Make sure you subscribe to our Youtube Channel: Happenings at Lamgo Farms. I post on YouTube first- before you find it here.
What Happens Next:
Week 4: Directions and puppy picking instructions will be emailed.
Week 5: Temperament testing will be conducted.
Week 6: Temperament testing results will be emailed the Wednesday prior to picking.
Sanjay F1bb Pocket/Petite Goldendoodles
Sanjay’s pregnancy has been confirmed via Ultrasound. Her due date is set for March 11.
I will be contacting those who have already inquired or are on wait lists before opening any spots to the general public. Hopefully by the final week in January I will know for sure if we have open spots.
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).
- waitlist: Bigham, Vinson, Horton, Gaboriau

Maybelline / Beans F1b Petite Labradoodles
Maybelline has now completed all of her inseminations. We will be confirming pregnancy via ultrasound sometime next week if weather permits. We are experiencing some ice storms this week and next. I’ll keep you posted. If breeding was successful, she would be due around March 22nd which would give us puppies going home the middle of May.
( black, red and apricot) Wavy thinner more wire coats.
Poppins / Banks F1 Moyen Sheepadoodles
Poppins has now completed the breeding process. Puppies should be due around the end of March with puppies going home around mid to late May. We are hoping to confirm pregnancy via ultrasound next week if weather permits. We are experiencing ice storms right now and possibly on into next week. This could postpone her ultrasound. I’ll keep you posted.
These puppiese are more of a medium size vs our Lina Standards. They are black and white with some having black and white faces and others having black faces with a black and white body. They are mostly wavy with some curly. These babies mature between 45-55 lbs. We have had a few mature at 60 lbs. We are generally able to pick out those that will be larger around 5 weeks old.
Pictures coming soon!
Emerald / Paddington
F2bb Mini Goldendoodles
Litter Reserved with a waitlist
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.
Emerald is in the breeding process. Once completed we will wait 3 weeks to confirm pregnancy. If successful, puppies would go home around early to mid June.
This is a first time breeding so we do not have past puppy pictures for this litter, but because we have been breeding these lines for some time and have been matching these colors and coat types, we have a great idea what they will look like.
Below are pictures of some of Sammy and Charmin’s puppies (both Sammy and Charmin are Duke puppies as well and resemble Emerald) for reference.
We also do not have a past litter size to indicate how many picking spots we can reserve, therefore, we will open up 6 spots and then hold a wait list to be on the safe side. Deposits will be accepted once pregnancy is confirmed.

- Saletan- double listed
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, Ethel mini Double doodle litter, Ruby English Sheepie Doodle litter and another Parker Pocket litter.
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.

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.
