A miracle — Australian Labradoodle puppies have been born!

Fili­gree Surprise

The best mom ever. Fili always sur­pri­ses me with her inner peace. If she was
a human I would really be sure she is into joga or medi­ta­tion. Serio­usly.
When I watch her before the birth, during and after it is like wat­ching
wolves natu­ral life at Natio­nal Geo­gra­phic. She just instinc­ti­vely knows how
to manage her bre­athing, what movem­ments to make to easen her pain (which
obvio­usly appe­ars a long time before the deli­very takes place) Bre­ath
in.…breath out.

And hone­stly — not all the bit­ches are like this. Some can be nervous,
anxious, bre­ath heavily few days before. It is nothing bad of course but the
beauty of seing how Fili is mana­ging it, like she is some kind of
expe­rien­ced medi­ta­tion trainer…priceless.

Of course the night before she came to my bed. She was quiet, I gave her
some rela­xing mas­sage. But then she alre­ady told me it is coming. She was
pre­pa­ring and was looking for my support.

During the deli­very Fili was coope­ra­ting without any stress and anxiety. It
took her 3 hours and all pup­pies were there. Quiet and calm as she was. No
sin­gle squ­eak, rela­xed bodies.

Fabian gave up on his win­ter vaca­tion once he found out it is the time. He
said he will not go any­where and that I sho­uld not force him to go. “Do not
force me, will you not force me anymore?”

So he was pre­pa­ring the thre­ads if we needed it for the umbi­li­car cord. He
had his own latex glo­ves. He said — do not call me Fabian. Now I am Mr
Vete­ri­na­rian John and ple­ase call me this way. So I said. Mr John scis­sors
ple­ase, towel, put the puppy in a box gen­tly. All this coope­ra­tion went
great. Still hard for him to under­stand not to pick up the pup­pies yet for
any hug­ging but he is a good boy and listens.

WEEK 1

Dear fami­lies!

A whole week has pas­sed under the sign of that warmth and gro­wing bel­lies .
Mommy takes a very good care of us. Edyta keeps our room really warm as
she sais – we are not able to con­trol the tem­pe­ra­ture of our bodies yet.
Mommy of course warms us up as well. Edyta weights us every day so she knows
if we grow. She sais it is very impor­tant that we double our weight within a
week.

She also began to per­form some weird exer­ci­ses on us — cal­led early
neu­ro­lo­gi­cal sti­mu­la­tion . You can read more in the article cal­led “Early
Neu­ro­lo­gi­cal Sti­mu­la­tion” by Car­men Bat­ta­gila .
Early neu­ro­lo­gi­cal sti­mu­la­tion helps to build sta­ble nervous sys­tem in
puppies .

Bene­fits of sti­mu­la­tion:
1. Impro­ves func­tio­ning of the heart ves­sels
2. Streng­thens cir­cu­la­tory sys­tem.
3. Streng­thens adre­na­line glands.
4. Makes out body resi­stant to stress
5.Builds up immu­nity system

For us it means we are put in 5 dif­fe­rent exercises:

Head down

Head down

Head up

Head up

On the back

paws being tickled - sensory stimulation

paws being tic­kled — sen­sory stimulation

Cold towel thermal stimulation

Cold towel ther­mal stimulation

Edyta sais that bene­fits are tre­men­dous, howe­ver they need to be done with a
spe­cial care as the results of over­sti­mu­la­tion the pup­pies could be dra­ma­tic
and can result in de-regulating nerve sys­tem. This is why this is not
recom­men­ded to novice bre­eders as it is very easy to for­get about the
timing. Edyta sais that each exer­cise sho­uld not be done for more than 3
seconds – you can see the video how quick it sho­uld be. Also any other
exer­ci­ses sho­uld not be per­for­med on the pup­pies. Pic­king up and hol­ding in
hand is not allowed.

She tells us that the most impor­tant thing for us now is that we feel safe.
Some­ti­mes we can be pet­ted, but only if we are close to mummy. Thro­ugh touch
we build the image of our own bodies but that can not be over­done either.

Here are our pic­tu­res and some videos:

WEEK 2

Edyta is lau­ghing, that we actu­ally start looking like dogs right now.
Funny. Some of us have ope­ned their eyes. Some of us start play­ing with each
other and with Edyta. That acti­vi­ties last for 30 seconds and then we go to
sleep again — of course. Our nails have been clip­ped so we do not scratch
mommy by an accident.

Of course Early Neu­ro­lo­gi­cal Sti­mu­la­tion is being prac­ti­sed on us, we do not
mind it and we are very very rela­xed while doing it.

Edyta still sle­eps with us so some of us crawl on her matress to get her
warmth. This way we are alre­ady get­ting the code of human smell imprin­ted.
First good memory of a human source of warmth.

Apart from that Edyta lets us smell some things we do not know yet. An onion,
lemon, pota­toe, gar­lic, herbs, cats, flo­wers, cin­na­mon, soil, cof­fee — all
of that hid­den in a lit­tle jars.

By doing nothing the con­nec­tions in our brain alre­ady start formulating.

Edyta is pre­pa­ring us for mas­sage ses­sions that will take place this week.
She touches our bodies when we sleep with mommy. Very gen­tly touching our
bel­lies, sides and feet.

Edyta sais that non sti­mu­la­ted pup­pies by the time of 8 weeks have 30% less
of the con­nec­tions in the brain than those sti­mu­la­ted ones.

WEEK 3

A lot has hap­pe­ned in the past week. Oh A LOT!. Fir­stly, we ope­ned our
ears and Edi began to intro­duce us to the won­der­ful world of sounds. But she
did sur­prise us when the first sounds we heard were the sounds of pre­na­tal
life (heart beating and pre­na­tal waters). She has done it on pur­pose so we
enco­un­ter this won­der­ful world slowly with some­thing we have alre­ady heard.
Some­thing which is well known and asso­cia­ted with safety.

She is also mas­sa­ging our bodies, per­for­ming so-called Shan­tal mas­sage. Our
recep­tors rece­ive infor­ma­tion about our bodies. Mas­sage has num­ber of
posi­tive bene­fits, and depen­ding on which part of the body is being mas­sa­ged
it:
– affects the inter­nal organs in a posi­tive way
– helps rebu­il­ding dama­ged skin cells
– impro­ves meta­bo­lism,
– impro­ves blood flow in the body
– nor­ma­li­zes the secre­tion of dige­stive juices
– rela­xes
And what is the most impor­tant thanks to it dog learns how to relax his body
when he needs to.
Edyta is also wor­king on the balance and our mem­bra­nes. For what pur­pose? So
in the future we do not get motion sick­ness while dri­ving. When we get to
the car for the first time we will alre­ady be pre­pa­red for this and our
first car ride goes stress free.
We still learn dif­fe­rent scents. Edyta some­ti­mes beha­ves like a dog mom -
brin­ging scents on her hands and clo­thes. She lets us smell them and this
way we get to know the world more and more every day.

SCENT EXERCISES

MASSAGE SESSION

WEEK 4

Edyta says that we made pro­gress this week.

She still keeps on mas­sa­ging and doing mem­brane exer­ci­ses that will pro­tect
us from being car sick in the future.

Now we listen to a lot of dif­fe­rent noises. But Edyta uses dif­fi­cult words
HABITUATION AND SENSITIZATION
Habi­tu­ation means get­ting accu­sto­med with sti­muli. She says that the sounds
sho­uld be plaid
at such a distance and inten­sity that we do not get sca­red. We have to
gra­du­ally get used to a sti­muli. It is in con­trast toSen­si­ti­za­tion. It
hap­pens when we do some­thing to fast and too loud that it will stay in our
memory for so long that we will have dif­fe­rent pho­bias asso­cia­ted with it.

So we listen to: fire­works , storms , sounds of the sea , sounds of
dif­fe­rent
ani­mals ( mon­keys , bar­king dogs , ele­phants, lions , wolves , bears, birds,
vul­tu­res , owls , snar­ling and bar­king dogs ) trucks, police and ambu­lance
sirens , traf­fic, heli­cop­ters , air­pla­nes , scre­aming chil­dren , gunshots .

Now we have star­ted to explore other room — but we were not for­ced to do so,
we came out of our puppy room by our­se­lves. Edyta gave us strange objects
– bot­tles that seem to give strange sounds. Nooo, it was just fun.

There’s a lit­tle boy , who does a lot of thing­swith us. He shows us
dif­fe­rent
sounds and he is mas­sa­ging us. Eve­ry­thing is still slowly as the week has
pas­sed with a huge
amo­unt of rest and deep sleep .

We invite you to view pho­tos and video ;)

WEEK 6

This week we met a lot of people and we gave them lots of doodle licks. Also
the enri­ched envi­ron­ment with lots of sounds has been served to us. We met
other rooms as well and went down­sta­irs where we are allo­wed to explore even
more. We are of course still being mas­sa­ged and our envi­ro­ment chan­ges so we
actu­ally learn that change is good thing.

WEEK 7

It has been an explo­ring week.

Edyta sais that by the time of 7 weeks pup­pies sho­uld alre­ady know 7
dif­fe­rent sur­fa­ces. This is why she built tun­nel for us. You can see the
sand, rub­ber, metal, pla­stic, gras, wood, stone ect. She has hid­den snacks
there of course, so explo­ring is actu­ally tasty and fun:)

We are still visi­ted by many people and we love them as you can see.

Also we are being tra­ined to like the pla­stic trans­por­ter. This is quite
impor­tant for some of us;)

Enri­ched Envi­ron­ment is still being pra­ci­sed as well as sud­den noises,
smells, mas­sa­ges and all that we really enjoy!

SOON NEW STORIES, PICTURES AND VIDEOS

————————————————————————————————–

There are lots of the­ories about socia­li­za­tion and sti­mu­la­tion of pup­pies at the early age. Some people say to socia­lize, some object to that say­ing that we sho­uld leave eve­ry­thing up to nature. In nature mothers do not do Early Neu­ro­lo­gi­cal Sti­mu­la­tion, they say. Is that right?

First we need to explain some­thing. It is we – people who moved stray dog from its natu­ral envi­ron­ment. We loc­ked it in our house. Mother is raising their pup­pies in a puppy pan and the only smell they expe­rience is the smell of mother and washing powder. Some pup­pies are more for­tu­nate when they are raised in the area where actu­ally some­thing hap­pens – there are smells coming out of the kit­chen.
Why to sti­mu­late the smell why to do early neu­ro­lo­gi­cal sti­mu­la­tion? After all mother in nature does not do it. But isn’t she, really?

In nature, mother brings dif­fe­rent scents from the out­side world on her body — the smell of the air, soil , gar­bage, other ani­mals. Do the shiny, beau­ti­ful show mothers bring the same sti­muli to the puppy pan?

In the wild it is the mother that pro­vi­des the food. She leaves pup­pies for a while, and what if they are cold? Great – ther­mal sti­mu­la­tion. Their bodies are not resting on a soft blan­ket and the room is not heated up. Some­ti­mes, they are with their head up, some­ti­mes down and some­ti­mes on the back. Con­di­tions are not ste­rile and young pup­pies expe­rience mild stress due to envi­ron­men­tal con­di­tions.
There come dif­fe­rent noises at dif­fe­rent volume from the out­side. Pup­pies hear them as soon as their open their ears (at about 21 days of age). No one waits until they are ready, mother nature does not care. And this is the real nature.
Nature is not clo­sed in a ste­rile puppy pen , and if you really want to leave it all to nature you sho­uld sup­ply pup­pies with con­di­tions as close as possi­ble to these natu­ral ones. And my point is not to put pup­pies in a cold barn along with their mother.
My point is to sti­mu­late because mother nature does it we just do not see it. After few weeks, they will come out and it will be their natu­ral envi­ron­ment and they need to start to get to know it very early.
Of course there is a risk of over sti­mu­la­ting the pup­pies which results in destroyed nerve sys­tem. But it is bre­eders respon­si­bi­lity to get the pro­fes­sio­nal know­ledge in that sub­ject so that they know how to do it in the right way.

Sti­mu­la­ted 8 week old pup­pies have about 30% more brain con­nec­tions than those that have not been stimulated”
