lexi just turned 6months old on 2-20, she just went into her first heat cycle maybe 3 days ago, and she seems very depressed, not wanting to play much and generally just laying in bed most of the day. Is this normal for a dog in heat? i can understand she must feel miserable, just wanna make sure nothing else is wrong. thanks in advance for any advice. :)

That's certainly how Daisy behaves, it's always the first sign that the heat is imminent.She actually seems clinically depressed and just lies in her basket.She should come round a bit after a few days, but she will seem a bit off form and have a more subdued personality.
I know our little lady was very put out because she wasn't allowed her 40 min morning walk and the change in routine made it seem worse.

That sounds pretty normal to me. Our girls definately have a mood change when they're in season. Be patient and your little girl will be back to normal before you know it.

Think PMS (for several weeks)... but with much stronger hormones.
