Thank you so much for the advice and information
That will settle my husband's mind a bit.
Sandi, I made the decision (with the blessings of my breeder and vet) to wait til' she was more fully "developed" to spay, so its not an accident. I'm not crazy about the idea of heat/diapers/chasing boys away! lol, but I'll suffer through it for a few weeks, in hopes that her bones gain some benefit from the hormones. Ironic, that I had just started her on homemade diet 2 weeks ago! She's about 7.5 months. First, I noticed her licking her vulva alot
more, and she's more whiny, eating twice as much as usual (like I do! LOL) and then I saw a little blood and swelling yesterday afternoon when I was brushing her.
I took the diaper off and I'm just going to wait and see how well she keeps herself clean. She's very clingy, and right at my side on the couch.
What's funny, is that I am about to start too!
My husband was just like "OH NO!!!!" lol Because I always start around the full moon too. Crazy.
Missy, You are funny!!! I think the Princess is more of a teen than a woman, but nonetheless.......a princess! I am still the Queen! hehe.
I made her a special PMS breakfast of boiled eggs, cottage cheese, and fresh ripe peaches and flaxseed oil... and she devoured it and looked up to me like "MORE!"
Funny! It was darn GOOD, I will have to make some for myself next time! lol
