In the night of 14 July 2014, Disney and Rodney's puppies were born. We are so happy!! It's a total of 6 beautiful puppies, 2 boys, 4 girls all slate. The delivery went well, the first puppie was born at 0:40 and the last puppie at 6:10. Mummy Disney is a supermum, really caring and protective towards her puppies. The puppies are 8 weeks old now and you can find pictures of each individual puppie at the page week 8 (click the bears to see the pictures of this week and the previous weeks) Have fun!!

Please click on the bears below to see the photo's of the puppies each week:

The proud parents are:

We breed according to the rules of the Dutch Bearded Collie Club. Our girls will never have more than 3 litters of puppies in their life, that's more than enough for them to cope with. Our beardies meet all the requirements that are set by the Dutch Kennelclub and the 2 Bearded Collie Clubs. The puppies grow up in our livingroom and will get used to all regular sounds and experiences of daily life. Our dogs also live in our house, not in kennels. The puppies will enter the Bio Sensor Program (more information to the right side of this page) and will be socialised as much as we can. They will get used to different sounds and experiences. The puppies will go outside for walks on the leash when they have had their first vaccination. The puppies will be dewormed from 2 weeks every other week till they leave to their new owners. They will be vaccinated at 6 weeks of age, will be micro-chipped, will receive a petpassport and declaration of health. They will also get an official pedigree from the Dutch Kennelclub and a DNA profile (proof that they are officially the children of Disney and Rodney). And most of all, they will be loved, cuddled, and well taken care of from the moment they are born till the day they leave with their new owner. Each little Telling Tail is a part of us and we always love to hear about the adventures they experience in their new life with their owners.

Weight and waiste of Disney during her pregnancy:


09 - 07 - 2014

Everything is ready for the birth of the puppies. The litterbox is in place and Disney has approved of it. She has lost her appetite a little, the puppies are probably lying against her stomache.

07 - 07 - 2014

Disney is now in the final week of her pregnancy and it's getting harder for her. She doesn't run anymore and has difficulties trying to climb on to the couch or bed. She mostly sleeps during the day and is a little uncomfortable due to the babies being awake, moving around in her belly. Her bodytemperature will be checked every day, because as soon as this drops severely, we know she's going into labor within 24 hours. Disney is now at day 55 of her pregnancy which means that in 3 days the puppies could come already! You can see at the photo's below that she's quite heavy but still tries to relax.

We went to the vet's office today and he confirmed Disney's pregnancy, as we expected!! We are so happy with this fantastic news!

09 - 06 - 2014

Disney is finally starting to show some signs of a possible pregnancy! She's eating poorly which is unusual for her. We are crossing our fingers and hope she's pregnant...just need to be patient a little more!

14 - 05 - 2014

Disney has had two romantic dates with her lover Rodney. Exciting time is ahead of us now. Is she pregnant?

Disney and Rodney are having puppies!

13 - 05 - 2014

Disney has had a progesterontest on 8, 9, 10, 12 and 13 May. The first tests showed low value of progesteron in her blood (between 1 and 2) and on 12 May there was an increase noticed. On the 13th of May we got the news that her progesteron level was rising and the vet advised us to go ahead and drive to the UK!!

02 - 05 - 2014

Disney is come into season today. In about a weeks time we'll start with the progesteron tests.



Below some pictures of Disney and her friend Boo Boo. This trip to the UK made it possible for me to spend some time again with my dear friends Rianne and Marilyn and their lovely beardies! Oh how I just love the UK, beautiful surroundings, we just had a wonderful time even though it was a bit short.

Bio Sensor Program

The U.S. Military in their canine program developed a method that still serves as a guide to what works. In an effort to improve the performance of dogs used for military purposes, a program called "Bio Sensor" was developed. Later, it became known to the public as the "Super Dog" Program. Based on years of research, the military learned that early neurological stimulation exercises could have important and lasting effects. Their studies confirmed that there are specific time periods early in life when neurological stimulation has optimum results. The first period involves a window of time that begins at the third day of life and lasts until the sixteenth day. It is believed that because this interval of time is a period of rapid neurological growth and development, and therefore is of great importance to the individual.
The "Bio Sensor" program was also concerned with early neurological stimulation in order to give the dog a superior advantage. Its development utilized six exercises which were designed to stimulate the neurological system. Each workout involved handling puppies once each day. The workouts required handling them one at a time while performing a series of five exercises. Listed in order of preference, the handler starts with one pup and stimulates it using each of the five exercises. The handler completes the series from beginning to end before starting with the next pup. The handling of each pup once per day involves the following exercises:
1. Tactical stimulation (between toes)
2. Head held erect
3. Head pointed down
4. Supine position
5. Thermal stimulation.
Tactile stimulation
1. Tactile stimulation - holding the pup in one hand, the handler gently stimulates (tickles) the pup between the toes on any one foot using a Q-tip. It is not necessary to see that the pup is feeling the tickle. Time of stimulation 3 - 5 seconds. (Figure 1)
2. Head held erect - using both hands, the pup is held perpendicular to the ground, (straight up), so that its head is directly above its tail. This is an upwards position. Time of stimulation 3 - 5 seconds (Figure 2).
3. Head pointed down - holding the pup firmly with both hands the head is reversed and is pointed downward so that it is pointing towards the ground. Time of stimulation 3 - 5 seconds (Figure 3).
4. Supine position - hold the pup so that its back is resting in the palm of both hands with its muzzle facing the ceiling. The pup while on its back is allowed to sleep. Time of stimulation 3-5 seconds. (Figure 4)
5. Thermal stimulation—use a damp towel that has been cooled in a refrigerator for at least five minutes. Place the pup on the towel, feet down. Do not restrain it from moving. Time of stimulation 3-5 seconds. (Figure 5)
These five exercises will produce neurological stimulations, none of which naturally occur during this early period of life. Experience shows that sometimes pups will resist these exercises, others will appear unconcerned. In either case a caution is offered to those who plan to use them. Do not repeat them more than once per day and do not extend the time beyond that recommended for each exercise. Over stimulation of the neurological system can have adverse and detrimental results. These exercises impact the neurological system by kicking it into action earlier than would be normally expected, the result being an increased capacity that later will help to make the difference in its performance. Those who play with their pups and routinely handle them should continue to do so because the neurological exercises are not substitutions for routine handling, play socialization or bonding.
Benefits of Stimulation
Five benefits have been observed in canines that were exposed to the Bio Sensor stimulation exercises. The benefits noted were:
1. Improved cardio vascular performance (heart rate)
2. Stronger heart beats,
3. Stronger adrenal glands,
4. More tolerance to stress, and
5. Greater resistance to disease.
In tests of learning, stimulated pups were found to be more active and were more exploratory than their non- stimulated littermates over which they were dominant in competitive situations.
Secondary effects were also noted regarding test performance. In simple problem solving tests using detours in a maze, the non-stimulated pups became extremely aroused, whined a great deal, and made many errors. Their stimulated littermates were less disturbed or upset by test conditions and when comparisons were made, the stimulated littermates were more calm in the test environment, made fewer errors and gave only an occasional distress sound when stressed.
