Ginger's First Heat

Started 2 days ago. Since she has full reign of the house and most is carpeted, we have the pants and pads on. She will be scheduled for a spay in August. Any suggestions or hints for the duration would be appreciated.

Truffles is eight months old. I just ordered a pair of cute panties for her today in anticipation of her going into season. I had planned to spay her at seven months but the vet and breeder said it is better to wait until one year. When it happens I hope it does not last too long...

Thanks Celesthav for pointing to the thread and thank you Lalla for the diary. Not having a male dog to contend with, this should not be too much to deal with.
Thanks again for the info. Oh, and thanks to the others that commented and John for some laughter.

Thank you Celesthav for the thread. Yesterday I had a feeling it might happen soon because Scout was following Truffles everywhere. It has now started and I am surprised because she is so young. Truffles is going to be very unhappy not being able to go to the park with Scout...

We went through Rory's first season without drama. I didn't know what to expect so I bought the doggie diapers and onesies, but to my great relief they weren't needed - she kept herself perfectly clean without them.

She's never unattended outside and there is no male dog in the household so we may have had that going for us.

I'm so glad the thread will help. Lalla is quite good with details.
Many years ago, I had a female cocker spaniel that couldn't be spayed for medical reasons. Her seasons were very light and she took care of herself. No special attention was needed except to keep her closely guarded away from males.
Each female dog is different.
Comforting thoughts sent to Den & Barb's Ginger and Heather Glen's Truffles.
