Think Poppy is in heat, her vulva is fairly swollen and she had some blood yesterday. Just wondering what her form should be like for the next few weeks? Will she eat as normal or will she be off food?
She is doing great now despite all the problems we had early one, now weights 4.2kg which is great.

Most girls go off their food a bit, they can be a bit grumpy and withdrawn, but others sail through a season with no problems.

The most important thing obviously is to confine her to the garden and make sure you are with her even when she is out there - you would be amazed how determined dogs can be to get in, and bitches can be to escape!!

Our next door neighbours bitch who was on heat a few weeks ago got into our garden, thankfully Jasper was not outside at the time, but when I took her back to them and Jasper went into the garden, he went mad sniffing for ages, and would not come in and when he did he wanted to get straight back out again, we thought when he had got it out of his system he would be fine, but we had a dreadful night with him and he just would not settle, he really thought his luck had changed he really was in a bad state.:D
