    DO IT!
    Pretty had an oops litter. Do you want months out of your life? All the associated costs and time that happen? Having to find homes for pups??????
    See Blue heeler pregnant first season thread in general. She was booked in for TODAY but is in season again.

    Costs are hundreds more than desexing.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    Aw Di, what a bugger!

    At least this time she's yours completely so you can watch her/contain her etc.

    But since you are a first time dog owner I recommend you take the advice of your vet and others here and make your life easier and have your bitch desexed before she comes in season.

    Bitches in season are messy, you won't want her in the house leaving blood on your carpet and furnishings etc. Some people do not even like the look of their bitch after they have had a season as some bitches do not "tuck' back as neat and tidy when it's finished.

    A young bitch recovers from the surgery as though nothing happened, the more seasons they have the bigger the op, the slower the recovery in a lot of instances.

    I've never had males roaming around the outside of my fences wanting to come in but then I can pick the early warning signs and know when they are close and do not walk them, I don't want to leave a trail back to my house.

    Hence your bitch goes a little stir crazy for a approximately 3 wks and gets a bit destructive and naughty etc.

    If I wasn't a registered breeder I would be desexing MY dogs/bitches around 9 mths old. But this depends of the breed of course.
    Yep...I know that one. Ruby seems fairly loose and has a bit of "hangy" boobies between her back legs. There is NOTHING I can do about it though...that is just the way she looks now

    Yep...mine would be desexed too...no ifs or buts!

    pug_life...people who show and breed know what to do to prevent oops litters. We make VERY sure we have a plan in place! We keep diaries and as soon as the first spot of blood...plan is put into action...eg enclosures...crates...separation etc!

    Both really...breeders should have given you information and you should probably have asked questions, but since you are a first time dog owner...it can all be a bit overwhelming eg toilet training, teething, chewing, mouthing, sleeping, vaccinations, desexing, training, puppy preschools etc etc

    Just remember...we were ALL first time dog owners once! We made mistakes (and sometimes big ones)...we learn from those, store them in out memory bank for next time and move on

    We are looking for it now. neither Cleas or I have any idea. Most probable assumption is that Morgan deleted it due to banned members. Not sure why, though. Sorry.
