Weekly Update May 13, 2021


May 13, 2021

Welcome to this week’s update at Lamgo Farms. I’m so excited you’ve found your way here this week to see just what is happening on the farm, with our family and to see all of our adorable puppies!!!

As you may have noticed- this update has not actually been updated for a few weeks now. Apologies all around. I hate missing out on letting you know what’s been happening but so much has taken place especially since last weekend so I will make this update part brief and get to the real reason you’re visiting.

My husband Phil had his third and final spinal surgery (for now anyway) last Wednesday. He is doing great and although he is not fully pain free, he is doing so much better. Thank you all so much for the prayers!

Phil and I are celebrating our 27th Wedding Anniversary this weekend!!! I’m so excited we get to spend it with him feeling better as well as a new hope in a long future together.

Many of you remember that while performing an MRI on Phil’s back a little over a year ago, they discovered a lesion on his brain stem. That is the next item we will tackle. The great news is that it is benign. Now we just need to keep it from causing any further harm.

As with so many of our owners, these puppies have been a tremendous therapy for Phil as he takes time off of being a Cowboy to heal and recover. The demands of the puppies keeps Phil getting up, moving, thinking, and overall. . .moving towards healing.

We get to see so many other owners flourish with the help of doodles and we know the costs involved are sometimes out of reach.

Each year we set aside a certain amount of puppies to be donated for therapy or service needs to those who qualify. If you are interested and have this need, please do reach out to me with a brief summary of your situation.

Please note that we do require medical documentation for our donation program.

For those inquiring, text me, Sandi, at 817-366-7995. For those wanting to find out more about how to place a deposit or how to get on a list- just email the following to info@lamgofarms.com.

-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.

I know I’ve received a number of emails over the past week. I have read them all and have started to respond. Many of you have detailed for me your preferences and even let me take a peek into your lives to see just what kind of doodle would suit you.

Thank you so much for inquiring with us and thank you for sharing with me and allowing me to be part of this experience with you.

If you do not hear back from me by Wednesday- please forward your email again. With the hundreds of emails received each day- taking a few days off can cause a few to get lost in the shuffle.

Why did I miss out on the update and go silent for a week? Well. . .Last Wednesday after Phil’s surgery we made it home and I got him settled. I was eating lunch when my Dexcom Diabetic monitor alarms went off.

I felt fine so seeing my blood sugar numbers dropping wasn’t alarming. I simply double checked with my glucose monitor and expected to see that my dexcom was showing an error.

To my dismay. . .the Dexcom was correct. My blood sugar was dropping dangerously low even with the intake of great amounts of sugar.

When I got the the 40’s I began to shake and was unable to think. I’m so thankful my Endocrinology office was on the phone with me walking me through this scary time. The first thing they did was make sure they had my location so they could call for an ambulance.

Thankfully I only dropped to the 30’s and began to recover. It has taken over a week to get my blood sugar back up to where it needs to be. Simply decreasing insulin was not working so we are doing the diabetic shuffle of jumping through hoops and trying to avoid speed bumps to get me back on track.

Coming back from a significant low like that can take a while to feel better. So, Phil has made sure I am resting and my update was the first to go.

I know I said I’d make this brief and well. . .I guess I suddenly became long winded. Sorry everyone!

One of the services our doodles are trained for is diabetic detection. I always wondered why a dog would be needed to detect blood sugar changes when we have devices such as the Dexcom that takes your blood sugar every five minutes.

Well, the answer is because I didn’t feel bad. I didn’t believe the device right away because I felt just fine. What I didn’t pay attention to was my dogs.

Yep, you read that right. I had 3 doodles in my living room huddled around me barking and jumping on me. Truth be told. . .irritating me.

They knew. Before my dexcom alarm sounded. Before I felt bad. They knew. Doodles are so smart and have a sixth sense. They are more than just fluffy fun and therapy to me.

These sweet ones can save lives! They are the best companions and so much more!!

Now, on that exciting note. . .let’s scroll on down to see just what is happening in each of your litters this week. . .


Here is what we have now

and what is coming up soon.

Scroll down to the FAQ section to see how to place a deposit, pricing, how to reserve a puppy and to answer many questions.

Right now they are doing well in their crates by themselves. We’re still working on our commands but sometimes they are just too excited to pay attention. Remember- wait until puppy has run off that extra energy and is almost ready or a nap before you work on commands.

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.

The Vet has already been by to remove dew claws. Collars will be added this weekend along with new pictures.

Right now the puppies are nursing and sleeping most of the day. Their eyes and ears are closed so they use their sense of smell to locate mama. We should see those first eyes open around day 14.

Welcome letters will be emailed sometime toward the end of next week.

Right now eyes are open and they are beginning their first food called Gruel. This is our own mixture of our premium puppy food, milk replacer, nutritional supplement and warm water all blended up to an oatmeal consistency. They LOVE it!

Our first video will be posted on our YouTube channel “Happenings At Lamgo Farms” this Saturday.

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.)

FAQ:

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 goldendoodles@lamgofarms.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 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.
