First heat! God help us!

I thought I was prepared for this. God knows we've been anticipating it.
My bed looks like someone was murdered in it. Because, dontcha know, it's her favorite place to sleep & snuggle.
DH brought home the doggie diapers with pads.
She ate the pad! I give up!
She is fine sleeping in her crate at night, but hates being in there during the day, especially when we are home. I've been following her around with my floor cleaner and a sponge!
Next, I'm sure the neighborhood delinquents will be camped out on the front porch any day now! Grrrrrr
That said she looks at me like,
"Mom! What's going on with me? I don't like it!"
Well,I don't like it either, sweetie.
Okay, I'm done.
Dale

First Heat

Alfa didn't like her first heat as well. She appeared so uncomfortable and somewhat scary... and her mood was a bit low and was less playful than before.

After the season she appears more calm and mature now! Alfa has become a young lady and not a crazy kid anymore!

We had Raegan neutered at 6 months - so no first heat for us.

So glad to hear this! It's what I am hoping for Phoebe.
After hip replacement at 7 months, having her spayed was not something I was willing to put her through. She was just getting back to her crazy self when Mother Nature gave us something new to deal with.
Remind me why I have a female....oh yes! Because I love her so much!
This too shall pass!

Thanks! Phoebe is gorgeous too. I like your head shoot photo. It's hard to take such a good pic from them... they always keep moving.

Just wondering - if we would have let her go through her first heat would she be calmer now? She has started to calm down a bit, but when we have people in the house she is not use to, she is crazy.

Alfa is in blue during the season. After the heat she's now gradually becoming more active but never as crazy as before. I'm not sure it is because of the hormonal effect or just she's getting mature especially after she's done the obedience training... as all things going on at the same time.

Oh my goodness! What gorgeous pics of Alfa!
I love her smile!

Phoebe is about midway through her first heat. She is still a wild child just not quite as continuous as before. She is sleeping lots. BUT, let someone ring the doorbell and all holy hell breaks loose! If the visitor makes it past the threshold Phoebe does a happy dance all around them--it is embarrassing. I hold her, but I swear her butt wiggles so much it is hard to hold on to her!

Goldens born in March 2012

Thank you Dale. She's a beautiful golden for sure and she's a big size one. She's now 71 pounds (32kg) and she'll have her 1 year birthday 2 days later. I'm not sure whether she's continue to grow but I hope not. I'm afraid that she'll become overweight that's not good for her hips.

Recently I'm also thinking of switching to an adult diet as she's still on vet prescription diet for puppy. Actually I'm thinking switching her to raw diet so I started another thread to collect opinions from that.
