this time they are just feeling around and growing.
We give them stimuli about three times a day, by picking
them up, rubbing our face on them, petting their backs,
this help associate human smells with positive stimuli.
We also are talking to them, so they know human voices,
this will help them pick up commands when older.
far as development, they are scooting around and beginning
to build there muscles, they lift the head and look
towards a sound.
We are now putting them on different textured blankets,
this stimulates the nerves in there feet and skin. To
enhance balance, and play. We also tickle them and scratch
there butts, to get a little more personal with them,
to enhance a bonding emotion in them young.
are also altering the lights, we had a soft light in
the room, for the development of the eyes, were now
switching once a day to an energy saver bulb, which
isn't as hard a common bulb, when there eyes open we
wont use ether for three days and just let some natural
light flow in, then we will go to soft bulb for a day
then the energy saver bulb switch again for at least
a week. This well help them be able to focus there eyes
quicker. It also enhances night vision, and makes the
eyes with proper deit very healthy, long term.
this time we aren't focusing on the development,
we are only focusing on the socializing,
they have just opened there eyes, and we want the eyes
as there ajusting to see us, we give them tons of petting,
and rub our fingers around the cheeks to get them to
play a bit with us, there ears are opening too so we
have started calling them by name.
we are only focusing on the socializing, play, security,
love and floppiness.
Bambi well have tons of fluffy
hair, and she is getting the baby doll eyes, her ears
are going to be floppy, next week we start potty training.
The colors so far are gold along her nose and cheeks,
gold her legs neck and feet, white toes, black nose
strip and black back, silver circles around the eyes,
gold eye brows, and white chest with some silver on
are socializing, and working with the eyes, getting
them to follow and look in different directions to strengthen
the eye muscles, we are also grooming them so they don't
have to look through the fur, the fur causes there eyes
to be opposite of cross eyed, our pups are corrected
at this young age to have normal looking and functioning
eyes, PLEASE keep there
eyes groomed once you have them so our work isn't for
Next Week we will be starting up the senses stimulus.
The Hair has just started to grow,
and the puppies have just started to play, they also
have just started to eat, we only give them smashed
up beef stew at this time so its like a thick liquid
made from peas, carrots, beef and water cooked overnight
The eye exercises are NOT to clear
a genetic defect from our lineages, our lineages come
from healthy dogs.
But are actually something I had come up with.
My sons had lazy or crossed eyes as babies, doctor Siegel
from pacific eye institute had shown me exercises to
do with them to correct this. When I volunteered at
the human centers before I even had these dogs I noticed
the way furry dogs had developed an opposite look to
the crossed eyes. Due to looking around there fur. This
has developed over years and years of breeding the fuzzier
dogs in many breeds.
Well I didn't like it and thought if I kept the face
groomed and did the eye exercises dr Siegel showed me
for my children I could correct it. Come to find out
not only dose it correct it, but if you do it while
they are young, they grow to have gorgeous eyes, ( See
my photo page ).
Once you receive a puppy the exercises are no longer
needed, just keeping the face groomed.
are still socializing, and working with the senses,
We give them different taste of safe organic foods,
such as honey, Dog Treats, beef broth, beef soup paste
(home made), and other foods, just a drop. This well
give them a strong gut able to also absourb a a variety
of nutrients. We are also now taking them to the yard,
there eyes are adjusting to sun light, and we are giving
them different things to smell, flowers, bugs, our cat,
grass, rocks ex..
are very play full now, and wake up in a hurry when
I say "puppy!" they lick you, gnaw on you,
cry for you, I even cuddle them in the bed and they
fall asleep with there little noses snuggle up to you.
They already have a strong attachment to people. We
just started taking them out side for there senses so
they are still in a state of awe when i do so, during
this weeks video youll be able to see the way they react,
and it may be a good choice for your keepsake. however
they do run to "Puppy!" but because of the
awe they ignored me, but by next week they will be used
to it so you may want the keepsake video to be next
weeks. the videos are PC format not DVD.
for some reason Bambis photos came out blurry so i gave
are working on motor skills, and listening skills,
we help them run up and down stairs (they are smaller
then the Teddy Bears so they need help.) and follow
the puppy noise. We also hide and yell puppy so they
can find us. we also use a cream rub on the feet, but
theres no real reason except they like it, it may have
its benefits to the pads. The
puppies are very active now, and the hair is coming
They are also teething on beef
sticks. I will be gone all weekend but my dad is watching
them your next update will be on the normal day saturday
or sunday, next weekend, not this weekend.
Potty Training Using puppy Pads, and playing out side one hour after feedings. Fun and games. They learn action words like Wanta
Go, Puppy, and a few others which we have been doing, but
besides that it all about the human bond.
