    I have never noticed a difference between the first heat compared to any of the others that followed, it's messy but a good diaper and liners make the whole thing manageable.

    I have read that the first heat can be lighter than any other heat so I hope that is true! Also how old is Molly? Lola is showing signs of going into heat she looks a little swollen and is really restless more than normal the past 2 days and wants to go outside more than normal. I have never had to deal with a dog in heat ever!

    With Chevy I used diapers with a harness, got mattress suspenders to clip from the diaper to the harness. Worked great. You can also use mitten clips.

    My girl Mabel just went into heat yesterday and I bought a bag of depends from the goodwill for 3.49 brand new (love that place) and I put harness on her and attach the mitten holder clips onto the depend and attach to harness and wala we have success and it is super easy to take off.

    Aunt Clara is also currently in her first heat. I have nothing to compare it to, but it's certainly not a heavy flow, just a little more than what i would call spotting. Pull Ups have more Velcro you can adjust than regular diapers. We've tried both since i have diapers here from my 2 year old grandbaby. She has the diaper off within minutes just from scooting around. I bought 4t/5t pull ups, and they work better after i tighten the elastic. We picked up a harness from walmart and an approximately 3 ft long strip of Velcro. We only use the grabby party of the Velcro, put it through the same loop in the harness that the strap that goes under her belly is put through, and then tuck about 1.5" of each end of the Velcro strip through each leg hole to help keep it up. When she needs to go potty, we just detach the Velcro and have get step out of the pull up.

    Something we hadn't thought of was the fact she might actually go potty in the diaper, and she has actually pooped twice in them (she was outside at the time), lol. That was kind of gross.-uploadfromtaptalk1353077931354-jpg

    I also meant to say that after she wore the whole harness and Velcro getup for a couple of days she was more tolerant of the pull up by itself. She hates the harness! So, I think she's less focused on getting the diaper off when the harness isn't on now, if that makes sense.

    Where can I get the mattress clips or mitten clips? I have a harness already and maybe I will try the pull up thing if they stay on better! I bought a pack of 2 diaper covers on amazon yesterday they were 16 with free shipping I thought that was a great deal! Im sure Lola will pee in them we still dont have her mastered yet in our new apartment but she is doing good. My breeder that I got Lola from just told me the puppy she kept from Lolas litter just got done with heat and all she noticed was her being swollen but she didnt flow enough to use diapers and she did buy some so she is going to give them to me! Thanks everyone for the support just a little nervous because our apartment has all brand new carpet and tile.

    You can get cheap on amazon or go to bed bath and beyond. I think even target sells them in the bedding section

    Obtaining a dog license should require more than writing a check.

    I had to hunt them down... Found one package at walmart but had to get help finding them. Then my mommy came to the rescue and picked up two packs for me! Yay for moms!!

    I got the large washable diapers/coverups at petsmart. The diapers I got from Walmart and I just went based on her weight, which actually worked really well. I couldn't find anything smaller so I got cheaper mens suspenders at Walmart, cut the side of them with the size adjusters and clips off and slid them onto both sides of her harness. It looks similar to the photo up thread except there are two strips on each side of her back that hold her diaper up. I'll try to get a picture.

    Molly is 3 years old, she had a litter of puppies at 2 years old but when she had her c-section she was spayed at the same time because she didn't handle being pregnant very well so we didn't want to take any chances. She went into her first heat cycle at 7 months and she was an every 8 month cycle girl.

    Will mitten clips work on a full size bully?
