Heat??? or Vet ASAP???

Rose has been acting weird for the last couple days. Her tits are a bit swollen but not her vulva. However, when I wipe her vulva the babywipe is a bit orange/pink. She is not eating as good. She was never a big eater but now I have to always mix in a bit of canned food for her to eat it. She also does not seem to have as much energy unless she is hunting a fly. It started since Sunday. On Saturday she did have a busy day; couple dogs to play with in several different settings and places.

I'm no expert by any means but it sounds to me like she's going into heat

How old is she? It does sound like she is going in season.

I just took her outside for 30 min to go #1 and #2 and she started playing; so after a couple minutes playing with her, I took a stick and practiced sits stays and tapped my left leg for around to come to me. I try to teach her body motions instead of spoken commands. She did good but not quite herself. Once again I had to coax her with canned food to finish her 5:30am food. Last night I gave her a baby aspirin 81mg since yesterday she was very very lethargic.
I looked at her mouth last night and noticed that she is missing one adult tooth. It is just gum and it doesn't look like anything is coming thru.

Do you think she can wait until tomorrow to go to the vet?

I have zero experience with dogs in heat, but I'd call the vet & explain what's going on to see if it's urgent or not.

I am with you on this one. I called the vet and explained the situation. They did not seem worried since she does eat with canned food encouragement. Does not throw up, the discharge is light. I am watching her every couple hours and if anything changes I will just show up there app't or not. I may have to keep her in the car if she is indeed in season just in case intact males may be there.

Is the orange/pink a discharge on the babywipe?

Have you checked her gums? Of they are pink and good, I would say she is thinking about coming into heat!
