    Frosty still uses all those different positions to sleep. The upside down one cracks me up every time.

    BTW you've come such a long way Di Dee - from the initial panic when you thought all the puppies would go in a sack and be drowned or something, to now, you own Pretty, you've got control (as much as possible) and you shake off internet pests like a duck shakes off water. And I bet the relationship with the men in your life has improved too. Just remember how strong you really are next time a crisis hits.

    Mind you - I always like to have a bit of a panic and flap around before I decide what I'm going to do in a crisis.

    Thank you.
    Am having a bit of a flap now, lol. Boris was here yesterday as FIL was away the day and did not want him in cage all day so he was tied up under his usual tree. Pretty went over as usual to say hi at times. I looked through the window and saw him trying to mount her, she pushed him away. I got her back inside.
    Today I notice some bloody disharge, looks and smells normal.
    I am now on page 38 in back pages on a forum.
    I was wondering...Oh shit, a season while lactating or it can be normal.

    So far I have found out yes it can be normal, no it isn't, one had a lactating bitch come into season with pups 5 weeks old, another at 8 weeks. Most though at much later times.

    Will be googling more, if anyone is bored shitless please feel free to help out.

    Will be ringing vet mon.

    Ahhhh, a thread that has a few answers the same.

    Yes as already said,she is swollen and bleeding from whelping.It can take several weeks for the bleeding to disappear entirely and the size of her vulva will not automatically return to small,that can take weeks to.Male dogs can get confused and appear Interested,but I highly doubt it is a season,it is post whelping.
    IMO

    Maybe in two weeks she could be having an early season if she cycled every 4mths......... (this was in relation to a bitch with 8 week old pups)

    I feel better now.

    Bloody Father in law. Hubby told me he wanted a male. Just rang him. Told him one male taken already. He said "oh good, I don't mind what I have."

    After I finish with him he will have male, lol. I do not want to have to take over with any accidents again, or if he does choose female after seeing her it will be on the undertaking that she gets desexed (me take her in) at 5/6 months.

    As much as I love this experience now, I will not, am not ever repeating it.

    Just a post for myself. With the reading that I have done today, 48 pages (that was enough) through a breeding forum, I realised that my lack of knowledge killed the 2 pups. Same thing happened a few years ago with an unweaned bird I was sold through a petshop and had no experience about. (I could have saved all today, but not then)

    While I am so upset with myself I do realise that I caould not have been expected to know everything. Pugger, I should have listened to you.

    We move on.

    I can be if I want to, lol. But thank you. As this is now a journal, it is for me to look back on, I want it "warts and all."
    Maybe someone down the track may benefit too. Hugs.

    Hyacinth, Di and I have the same reaction to a crisis in our lives. We are strong , cool headed and do the best we are able to in the situation. We save our nervous breakdown until the crisis is over and we can well and truly enjoy it with no detriment to others! lol.

    Yes, we pencil it in for a date and then if it comes and doesn't suit we pick another date, lol.
