    Ya they can last 2 to 3 weeks, sometimes longer. We use the diapers. They work pretty well. There is some pants that have Velcro straps that we put the diaper in and that helps keep them on.

    Also for you peeps that have the older bitches that are not spayed, when they come out of their heat cycle watch them closely for Pyometra, it can be deadly. BeBe got it when she was 5 and if I hadn't been paying attention, she could have died.

    The lenghth of time can vary-- it really depends on when they reach estrus. This is when they ovulate. Some dogs ovulate as early as day 6 while others can be as late as day 16 or longer!

    Once the bleeding slows down they are starting the estrus phase. I think normal from start to finish is 2.5 to 3 weeks. The first heat is usuallydifferent then the ones that follow due to horomones.

    I cant believe our little angel is 8 months old already. Where does the time go???

    David, thank you for pointing that out. It is surely something to be careful with! We will be spaying Gypsy at some point I think since we are not planning on breeding her (and will never breed!). She is gorgeous and very healthy but I wouldn't even know where to begin so I am not willing to take on that responsibility.

    Oh no, please don't tell me that!! I'm hoping to go home and her heat cycle will be over. Wishing thinking I know.

    Did I mention we have WHITE carpet, that's right, WHITE with little brown speckles in it...soon to have red speckles.

    Off to Petsmart to get the washable pants for my big girl.

    She's just starting to get her big girl bark and her head is rounding out more. I remember when Wilson was transitioning over to his adult look. One moment I'd look at him and see a puppy still and the next he'd look like an adult bully. So sad. I really do love this age she's at now.

    I took her in at 6 months because he wanted to check for to see if she was ready but her vulva was immature. Guess she's ready now.

    She's not very amused with her new big girl panties but she's accepting it. She's quite lovey too.

    Just took these.

    Forgot to mention. Got home, let them all outdto their thing and I usually stay out with them but I had to get some groceries in. Bring her back in and get her outfit on. Start doing laundry and look out my laundry room window and there she is back outside squating. I hurry back outside and yep, she in her new big girl panties.

    Oh and then Jack threw up his dinner and I stubbed my toe, owiee! I have a glass of wine now, it's all good!
