The heat season can bring many things. The whining and marking of males, the anticipation of new litters, the need to separate of dogs and in some cases, the heat of other females in the house.
Cycles can get thrown into a tizzy, all to compete with the other viable girls in the house. In our case, I have mentioned the possibility of Blue getting thrown into her heat and that thought has only been intensified by the interest she is being shown by all of the males in our house – Adults and puppies alike (Yes, Gator and Quik have taken notice and shown their honey ways)
Today, I happened to catch Ginny spending a lot more time self grooming. Her current pups are closing in on the four month mark, just the right time for her to come back into season. Looks like we could have a very long January!
