Mother's Love the Bond between Milly and Mitzi !

                      I want to discuss the Bond that really began to show itself  between a Mother and Daughter, or in my case Mitzi and Milly. The love that Mitzi has always shown any and all of her puppies, was an amazing thing to share your time with and witness. Mitzi had already had 2 Litter's including the Milly Litter , and she had shown how badly she  missed her puppies when they left our home. 

             The day after Mitzi's first Litter had left for their new families to begin their lives, we awoke to find Mitzi just sitting in the puppies bed .............. heart breaking I know ! I felt her pain then as I couldn't have imagined the loss of her babies and not having the ability, to understand where they had gone or why ?? 
I also felt totally helpless, as I couldn't help her and I don't like that feeling ......... So I just spent time with her and she was back to her normal self , a couple of days later.

         When the 2009 Milly Litter happened, and with that Mitzi had Milly, so she didn't have the need to grieve for her other Puppies, when they left. This was because she had Milly still with her and this meant that she never lost the entire Litter, as she had managed to  KEEP one of her babies forever with Milly !! 

           The connection between these two is an amazing spectacle to be around, and only a mother would be able to sleep through that diamond drilling  SNORING  that Miss Milly is capable to doing. It does show us though that, when something as frightening as Milly;s Accident.  Its not just the Humans who are in Shock, but the Injured Puppies Mother is Mentally Scared as well !!!  and Mitzi will actually go hysterical if Milly is out of her sight even to this day !!

Mother's Love !!

              Then we come to Mitzi's 2010 Litter and this time she would have a helping hand, and we were worried as Milly is and was NUT'S in every single way !! So I really did not know whether Mitzi would permit her daughter to be around her new babies ?? Or if Milly would be jealous of the new arrivals, as she was used to having her Mummy all to herself.  Especially as they had never been without each other, apart from when Milly was being treated for her accident, these two had always been together !!

           Mitzi and Milly are very similar in so many ways, they both have a sweetness and a generousness of spirit. But Mitzi show's us through silly little things how her "
 Puppy Farm " start in life, has made her slightly neurotic and unbalanced.  While Milly has been through the most traumatic event, that I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy.  But this little girl even though she has been through so much, she is so much more balanced emotionally than her Mummy and it show's itself in various way's.

          An example that explains what I mean about these two, is that Milly will quite willingly be left on her own if her Mummy is elsewhere. But her Mother Mitzi will totally go into a complete emotional wreck, if Milly is out of sight for more than a minute !! But it's more than that Milly will actually calm her own mother  down when she ever get's over anxious or hysterical !!! In a true Cesar Millan way this bonker's Darth Vader Puglet will, actually nip her own hysterical mother, and snaps her back into the real world !!

           This goes to show that even when Milly acts the fool her balanced home upbringing, has made her into a much more stable dog. While her mother who for appearance sake is the much calmer of the pair to the untrained eye ?? But in real state of thing's she has way more 
 ISSUE'S  than her Daughter who looks to all to be a complete  FOOL  !!! She is actually the more  " Normal "  balanced one of this funny partnership, that is this Mother and Daughter duo.

                   We then come back to Mitzi's 2010 Litter and this was when Milly Shocked us all with the amazing Calmness and total love of  her younger Sibling's. When Mitzi was drawing closer to her time, and she was  well ............. Enormous  !?!   This is a slight understatement,  by the time she was ready to have the babies she was so fat I feared she would  POP  !! 

                 But then she did have  
12  puppies inside her, that were just waiting to arrive with us asap. We sadly lost 2 puppies during the Birth which is always a loss, but for a Pugalier I think that 10 puppies is enough for a mummy to raise ??       For Mitzi the loss of these 2 puppies was keenly felt !

         The puppies had actually been born over 2 day's, as there were so many of them.   The loss of the 2 puppies it always is a sad experience, but it's something that does occur especially in such a large litter. When Mitzi had passed her last puppy, I settled down to take a breather as I'd been awake for nearly 3 days, as Mitzi had started huffing and puffing for ages before we had our first Puglet ! 

The all of a sudden Mitzi gets up from her puppies, so I thought she must want to go outside ??

         But nope she didn't want to go outside she was hunting and searching for something ??    She went upstairs, downstairs and she's squeaking , sniffing and is obviously looking for something ??   Then I click what she is doing and what she is hunting for, her 2 babies that had not survived ........ She is getting herself into a complete state, and it was really upsetting to watch her go through this loss of 2 babies, that she knew that she had given birth to !!

        I knew that when Mitzi get's a bee into her bonnet, she is not easily distracted,  nor is she easy to be calmed down . Once I realised what she was looking for I went into my daughter's bedroom, and secretly got 2 little toy's from her bedroom !!       I then put one toy on the floor and Mitzi grabbed it, and carried it downstairs and put it in with her babies !!    

        I dropped another on the floor and she ran back upstairs picked it up, and ran back down put her 2nd puppy into the bed and promptly went to sleep !!!

This Picture was taken about 5 minute's after her hunting session ! and Please Check Out the 2 Strange looking Puglet's that Mitzi adopted as her own !!!

          Mitzi took these two   " Well lets say 2 sort of Puglet's ! "   into her nest and treated them exactly like her other's

                  " Let's say  REAL  LIFE  PUGLET'S  !!! " 

            They were washed and polished by her and snuggled in with all of her other babies !! One day when Dai was helping,   I asked him to change the blanket under the babies !! and we put the babies in a box while we sort out bedding etc ...... Well when he put the babies back into the bed, 

    He left  Ladybird Puglet  and  Stuffed Dog Puglet  on the floor !!! 

         She  GLARED  at him as if he was a  COMPLETE  IDIOT  !! 

      She got out of her bed Glared at him again, she picked up Ladybird Puglet and put her in bed !! and got out again Glared and Huffed this time and Picked up Stuffed Dog Puglet and carried him back to bed with his other Brother's and Sister's !!! She loved these two surrogate Puppies as much as she loved her other's !! and she would get very offended if anyone else didn't treat them as such !! 

          Mitzi used to watch as I cleaned and weighed the babies, and was always making sure I did whatever I was doing at the time, I did it with ..................... 
              ALL  OF  HER  BABIES !!! 

       Our poor Miss Mitzi Moogle's raised this entire litter, of 10 Puppies without any assistance, apart from a lil bit of help from me and her nutty Daughter Miss Milly Mooz. Who I must admit surprised us all with the way, that she took on the job as a general nursemaid and baby sitter !! Milly was amazing with these puppies and her mother allowed her, to be completely entwined into the raising of these puppies !! 

Milly and the 2010 litter Babysitting !!

             The bond that Mitzi and her daughter Milly have is an incredible thing to observe, and the trust that Mitzi had with her normally completely nut's Daughter Milly just goes to show the unbelievable bond that these 2 share.  One of the  funniest thing that I have ever witnessed, was with this mother and daughter team in action, a few hours after these puppies had been born.

         Mitzi and her 10 babies were in the bed in front of the fire in our front room, just relaxing and keeping toastie !! Milly had not really been allowed to get involved with this litter so far, as I had wanted Mitzi to have a peaceful space to have her puppies and just bond. So she was just resting and enjoying some piece and quiet after the whole Birthing experience, and then Milly arrived ..............

      This was Leo and Sibling's who now lives in New York City !!!

                  This was the first time that Mitzi had seen Milly since she had given birth and we didn't know what to expect ?? A normal mother is very protective and wouldn't take kindly to a 1 year old nutter, getting involved with her puppies be her a Daughter or not ! Milly walked up to the bed and poked her head in to see what was making such funny noises ?? Mitzi moved her body around her puppies so her back was shielding her puppies !! Milly moved around the side to continue to nose ....... 

         With this a grumble came out of Mitzi,  well this didn't worry Milly in one lil bit !! With us watching on just in case something bad happened,  I let them continue with the game they were playing. Well I wish I had filmed this as it was worthy of an Oscar !! Milly moved to the side of the bed and just sat there and Mitzi continued to mutter under her breath. Milly did not bat an eyelid .......... she moved closer to the bed, not once looking at her mother ??

        Mitzi was still grumbling  and Milly moved one back leg into the bed, with her head turned away from her mother !!! Mitzi still moaning and then Milly moved there sideways. and moved her front leg into the bed !   Now Milly is normally a jump right in and I don't care who I land on sort of Girl, so the slowness just added to our amazement and humour. 

       Milly moved her 3rd leg in and then her whole body, and if you can imagine a Great Dane squeezing itself into a match box, then you have got a good idea of how
 Tiny Milly Made Herself !! The whole time she had not once looked at her mother, and her mother had not once stopped Growling !! But the sight of Milly with her head turned away, and herself into the Tiny Space in this bed, and she had not once trod or moved a puppy once !!! 

        Mitzi looked over at her daughter who was obviously Sooooooo
  STUPID  !! as she should have listened to her Mother and Just Stayed Away from her new and improved Babies !! But obviously the bang on her head had affected her, that even when she growled at her daughter she didn't cotton on !!!

       Mitzi Glared at her Daughter ......... Huffed and promptly fell asleep !! We looked over at Milly who is still in this lil Tiny space and as we look at her ............ she almost Smiles and wiggles her lil tail and then just like her Mother, she then also fell asleep !!

      It was not only one of the funniest thing's I have ever seen, but more than that It Show's Us the 
TOTAL TRUST that these two share, and it was an unbelievable scene,  and one that my family or I will never forget or ever witness again.

                   Milly with her younger Brother's and Sister's !!!

                It just go to prove that A Mother's Love is Always Un~Dying   and it show's us how the Bond of Motherhood will forsake all the ........  
               NORMAL  ANIMAL  BOUNDARIES that are normally held in place. Such as the fact that a Mother will never allow, another dog into their protected Den when they have a litter of New Born Puppies. 

        But Milly has this total innocence and has this ability that even when other Dog's who normally 
 HATE any other Dog's will actually Like Milly !! She is probably the sweetest Dog I have ever known with this Childlike attitude and the most wonderful happiness and endearing personality. Which makes her impossible to be angry with or fail to fall in love with ..........

            I think it's this spirit that allowed her Mother to believe that Milly would never Harm her new puppies in any sort of way !!

        Here are Lot's of  Picture's of the 2010 Puglets !

                But there was 10 of them .............
