    I believe that Kahlua may be entering her first heat. There haven't been a whole lot of signs, but yesterday we did catch her humping Diesel. I also have noticed she cleans her girly parts a lot and they just seem sort of wettish looking all the time. I haven't seen any blood. She doesn't howl or act funny or crazy. Just the new humping thing and the extra cleanliness.

    Ah.... really not looking forward to this with Millie. Only ever experienced one heat before with my DDB but it was messy messy messy. How old is Kahlua now?

    She will be 1 year old on May 20th. So far no messes. *fingers crossed*

    Kahlua continues to try to hump Diesel daily. For his part Diesel doesn't really seem to care. He just stands there and looks back at her as if to say "okay are you done yet?"

    You'll know when she is diesel will start to take notice, and he will. My sons bullmastiff was 1 when she had her first season she did similar at the start humping then the bleeding started about a week later.

    Hmm well Diesel has been neutered but I know that doesn't necessarily destroy those instincts.

    He has been acting weird the last couple of days. Mostly he has seemed very stressed and distracted. He even turned down chewing on a bone so he could pace around in the back yard alone. That is completely unheard of.

    I actually called and left a message for our vet yesterday thinking he may be sick. He also had some less than solid poops so there is that as well... And he was at the boarders with Kahlua just a few weeks ago so I was having worries of something Coccidia. He is still eating, drinking, peeing, pooping. He just is very anxious and distracted seeming. Although he did start playing again a little last night and was all for the bone later in the day so who knows. I do wish they could just talk to us so we could ask how they are feeling. Instead it is all guess work and evaluating every little sign, every little change in behavior.

    I would say he's getting her scent, my sons male goes off his food pants paces then at the end of the season he's a complete wreck, they buy birch spray which helps at the beginning but not at the end, they have to keep them totally separate he's worse if he sees her, good luck
