Poor Sophie

Poor baby girl is in season she wants to sleep a lot and acts like she doesn't feel well. Have any of you noticed that with yours? I can't wait to get her spayed.

I keep wondering if Pixel is coming in... there have been some changes, but I haven't seen any blood yet.

Having never had a female dog before, I'm afraid that I won't recognize the signs. I'll definitely be following this thread with interest.

I didn't recognize the signs when Truffles went into heat at seven months. Scout took a little more interest in her. We still walked her and no other dog took any interest in her. There was very little spotting. So glad she didn't go through another heat before spaying at one year.

LOL Ricky I'm with you!

Maybe she is just having a tired spell then. I was wondering if Pixel was coming in yet since they are so close in age. She is I believe in the 2nd stage from what I've read. She has had almost no bleeding some staining here and there but nothing to write home about. Her coat was matting way more than usual for the last 3 weeks or so I have cut a Sophie sized amount of hair off her coat sob! I would cut mats out in the morning and by evening she'd have more, all big ones. Her breeder said that would be temporary due to coat change and sure enough she has stopped that constant matting.

Can't miss the swollen situation though! And flagging. (I'm sorry but I find it hilarious to touch her tail and watch it flip to the other side). She seems to feel ok just markedly quieter in terms of amount of play time, lots more sleeping, etc.

She will be 1 yr old on Feb 1 (whaaa!!! I want her to stay around 6 months forever!) so will probably plan like you Heather and get her spayed about then. Truffles came in 3 months earlier than Sophie.

I spayed Zoe at age 1 as well. Her heat cycle was pretty uneventful with just some early signs followed by unmistakable swelling and spotting, but all in all, it was very easy as far as keeping things clean.
(we have tile and laminate floors). Zoe has always been very energetic and playful and I do remember her being a little more docile and affectionate. We continued to take her on walks without any problems. I picked her up when we would pass another dog just to be sure, while asking if the other dog was a male or female. The best part after her spay was the fact that she had 7 retained baby teeth removed. She ate much better afterwards.

Wow 7 baby teeth! Yes at least it could be done without having to go under twice.

I have heard from some people their dogs being tired and acting depressed when in heat but many also say not. Of course that makes me worry it could be something else going on. But she does play she just sleeps a lot more and doesn't play as long as usual. It's nice having her sleep a lot since I'm painting all these ornaments but hopefully it's just from being in season.

Are there any signs I should be on the lookout for other than physical? I've started checking to see if there is any swelling or spotting when I groom her.

In Zoe's case, I would say not really any unmistakable signs other than the spotting. She acted pretty much normal. As far as the baby teeth, Dee Dee, we only could see maybe 2 or at most 4, and it turned out to be 7. I was really happy that the vet removed them! I would have delayed the spay more if it weren't for the retained baby teeth.
