Question about a dogs first time in heat?

13 posts in this topic

My GSP pup now about 11 months old went into heat during the last month. We have kept a good eye on her. She hasn't left my side when she is with me and my parents say she is always near them when I leave her with them. My concern is that her nipples have gotten a bit bigger and look almost a bit swollen. Is this normal with going into heat or do you think she somehow snuck away and got pregnant? She really doesn't get out of sight,I sure hope she is not pregnant. frown.gif

It's normal. Also you'll find her vulva will be enlarged and probably bleeding from time to time. In a couple weeks things will start to return to normal.

Well that makes me feel better. Also you are right about the blood, I have been wiping some off the floor for the last couple of weeks, but it seemed to stop now.

My brittany jumped on the lap of a buddy and bled on his shirt. He noticed it later and wondered how blood got there. He checked his fingers for cuts and was dumbfounded on how blood got on his shirt. He is still mad at me for this. The bleeding didn't last long.

Buy some childrens "pull-ups". Cut a hole in the back for a tail and stick em on your dog while she is in the house. Works like a charm. Kinda silly looking but you have zero blood to clean up. Just gotta get the dog used to wearing them and your set.

It's not over yet. Usually the first couple weeks after the bleeding stops is the time to really keep your eyes on her, and the sneaky neighbor dog.

I like the pull-ups idea, but I doubt my dog would put up with that for too long. She'd have it torn to shreds in short order.

They have doggie diapers too. They have replaceable absorbant pads you put in the diaper. It works but it is a pain in the keister.

I thought there was no way either of my girls would put up with a "pull-up". I just got after them for the first night they had them on around the house. Both girls now keep them on in the house accept when they are crated. If I were to leave it on while they are in the crate there is zero chance the "pull-up" WILL NOT get shredded.

Hey Ryan she was alone with Buddy for awhile the first weekend...

But they usually cant get pregnant until 11 to 15 days after the bleeding starts.

If she is pregant I am charging you a stud fee laugh.gif

Hmm, what would you call that mix?

a) English Shorthaired Pointer

B) German Setter

c) Germlish Shpointer (say it out loud with German accent!)

d) GESSP acronym

      Drove all the way up to grindstone this morning from Forest Lake. As I'm driving along the shoreline, I can't stop admiring how beautiful of a day it is, and how great it will be to be on the water. Was totally amped up to fish for some trout! Then I pull up to the boat launch...and it's closed down! :mad: This dredging project has been pushed back for years, then they finally decide to do it on a beautiful sunny day, that I picked to come here...on the last day of the lake trout season nonetheless! Needless to say, I was very upset! 

      Could have throw a line off the south shore since you were all the way up there. :(

      Hey guys thanks for the tips.  What you are saying really makes sense.  I have been working on these items this week, not expecting a completely changed dog out there but looking forward to continued exercises this weekend out in the blind.

      I bet the state, not the political cronies, would get a lot more money by having the auction on the internet or allowing phone bids.  Heck, put them on the bay of E. 

      Actually DMV and DNR do quite well at their auctions. You win bid, You Pay, You own. No red tape, no collection process, simple and things seem to sell for quite a bit of money. Go and one see for yourself, its quite amazing. Lots of them at the Arden Hills DMV. Hard to collect money over the phone and on the internet. I do believe they will use the same auction process for this property sale as the DMV and DNR are good at it and a lot of buyers will be there. If the internet were to be used, the "political cronies" would need to create a bill, Ear Mark several million to develop a site, create an app, hire 40 to 50 people to manage and than increase taxes to cover the cost much like Obama Care Not a good plan. If your interested, go to auction, bring lots of money, win a bid and own.

      2016 MN auction schedule if your interested in going to one.

      They were dredging there today. Not sure if they are done or if it will take longer.

    • the weather has not been good this past week either, but fishing was still do able. Pike island is a popular spot and I am sure you can find fish there. Gold is. would be worth a try as would the area around the wolf pack. We had 4 nice walleye today and a great fish fry tonight. Heading home in the morning for the season. so good luck

    • I bet we will end up going to red trying to convince the couple guys that dont like sleepers for some reason that a 10x24 sleeper is just like a cabin and that we can bring 2 portables to bounce around if we want. Dont really need a guide ill probably allready have gone there 3-4 times before this trip.... Maybe superior will freeze good this year and I can convince them to go there i guess I just get kinda bored or red sometimes
