I'm not sure how to post a photo, but my avatar has my pretty girl Jeta who is a little over 9 months old. She is highly energetic and perfect for my family of 3 boys!
I have chosen to allow her first heat before I have her spayed and I can see it's on the way from some swelling and I need talked off the cliff!
From reading up I think it is best for her growth and development to wait one season since she is training to hunt. We will be super careful during her fertile time, but I'm nervous having never owned a dog I didn't spay early.
Can anyone share how long the swelling occurs before bleeding begins? I'm carrying around her denim diapers everyplace so I'm prepared! Also, I don't mean to be graphic but how much blood can I expect? I'm trying to choose a size maxi for her.
Any other tips or stories you want to share with me?
I have learned so much from lurking around on here to read all the advice from all of you knowledgable GSP owners!
