I've been a lurker on this forum for a while, but felt compelled to join so I could respond to this thread (albeit it is old...I hope someone reads it!!). We acquired our first golden in 2011, and at our breeder's request, kept her intact. She is my first intact female and has had two heat cycles so far. Her first cycle was went from Dec. 24, 2011 - Jan. 17, 2012. Her next one went from mid-August 2012 - mid-September 2012. This coincided with me becoming pregnant myself in late August. Then, I had a miscarriage in October at 11 weeks and noticed in December that Kea was having some vaginal discharge and was also leaking colostrum from her nipples. I consulted our breeder's reproductive vet who agreed with my hunch that she could be going through a false pregnancy (would make sense as the timing should have been right near the end of her diestrus). Call me crazy, but I think somehow my own hormone cycle interacted with hers. And now she's blowing her coat in the dead of Colorado winter. I guess we'll work on her performance titles over the next few months and then it'll be back to the show ring when she looks a bit better.

Welcome to the forum! My intact girls blow coat twice yearly. Pseudocyesis (false pregnancy) has nothing to do with what is going on with our own hormonal cycles. In my dog family, it looks like their seems to be some familial predisposition to the false pregnancies.... And currently, two of my neutered dogs are blowing their coats in Maine.....
