Puppies Molly and Oscar

Molly and Oscar's puppies were born during the night of the 18th of July 2015. We have 5 puppies, colored slate, blue and fawn, 2 girls and 3 boys. Molly is such a great mum, she is caring and sweet and protective towards her puppies, we are so proud of her! The puppies have gone to their new homes. We wish the new owners much luck and fun with their new familymembers and hope to hear about their adventures in future. Click the bears below to see the puppiepictures of Molly's litter.

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 Molly and Oscar). 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 waist of Molly during her pregnancy:

Just a few more days. We are counting down now and we can tell that it won't take long anymore before Molly will deliver her babies. She already produces milk too. Last weekend whe went with her friends and family to the beach again, to let her enjoy her walk and swim because it will be a while before she can go again. We can tell it's too much for her now so we are keeping her calm and let her decide how long she wants to walk. Her tummy has grown a lot these past days and the puppies are pressing against her intestines. Knowing the next couple of days there will be hot weather again we will keep her cool and let her rest as much as she wants to. Fingers crossed everything will be ok and we have some great news to share with you soon.

Tonight we could feel the puppies moving inside Molly's tummy for the first time, such a special moment. Isn't it just a beautiful miracle! So greatfull that Molly is sharing this with us, she's such a wonderful girl!

The last couple of days were extremely hot in The Netherlands, therefore Molly did have a hard time dealing with the warmth. Cooling down is the best way to get through these hot days, so we went to the beach of Noordwijk a couple of times which Molly really enjoyed.

16 - 06 - 2015

We went to the vet's office today who confirmed what we already expected, Molly is indeed expecting puppies! Just a couple of weeks now till the lovely bunch of cuddly puppies will be born. We hope Molly will have an easy pregnancy.

13 - 06 - 2015

Molly is eating poorly so we are actually thinking she is pregnant. Due to the pregnancyhormones they loose their appetite and even get a little nauseous just like humans. So we need to spoil her with extra tasty food otherwise she just won't eat. She even stops eating her meat, so now we are trying different kind of fish which she seems to like very much! Mmmm bon appetit Molly!!

Molly's season has ended so she could use a nice bath which removed the nice odour for other gentlemen. She sleeps a lot and isn't her usual self...could she be pregnant?

03 - 06 - 2015

We are on holiday with Molly and offcours our other 3 beardiegirls in the Ardennes, Belgium. We visited some sweet friends in Luxembourg during our holidays and they gave our four girls a stuffed toy to play with. Molly however, thinks they all belong to her. Hmm maybe she's having some maternal instincts?

Molly loves to be in the garden, maybe she's already working on her puppies?

But she also thinks it's cosey to sit on the porch with her mum, overlooking the garden and valley behind. She's having such a good time!

Molly has visited Oscar for the second time. After a succesfull mating yesterday, we expected the same today. However, it appears that Molly already passed her fertile moment because Oscar wasn't showing any interest in her anymore. Now we have to hope for the best and be patience till our appointment at the vet's office on the 16th of June who's going to tell whether Molly is pregnant. Just a couple of weeks...

19 - 05 - 2015

Molly has had her first date with a gorgeous blue beardieboy named Oscar. Both Molly and Oscar have great characters and personalities. They are very healthy active and supersweet! We are really looking forward to meet their puppies so we hope everything will go as planned. It will be Molly's first litter, but she has a lot of experience with taking care of her halfsisters puppies in 2012 and 2014. Zowel Molly als Oscar zijn hebben een geweldig karakter, zijn actief en kerngezond. Her maternal instinct was already visible so we expect that she will be a great mum for her puppies. Tomorrow we'll drive up to Oscar for a second mating, fingers crossed...

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.
