When was your female V's first heat cycle?

It seems like from what I've heard here and from the breeder that female V's have their first heat later(12-18mo) than other dogs (6-12mo)-

Do you think that's true?

When did your V have her first heat cycle?

Ruby had a bit of one (spotting and a bit swollen) last month, she was 6 months old, now at 7.5months she's in a real McCoy one, dripping all over the place and from behind it looks as though she's grown a set of saddlebags!

2 things I have heard or read about heat cycles (don't know how accurate) is 1) smaller dogs tend to have their 1st heat at a younger age 2) most dogs tend to follow their mom's time frame. Pumpkin's mother had her 1st heat at 12m. Pumpkin @ 12.5 m

Not until 20months ,and not since.. She's nearly three!
She's just had a full medical,so nothing obviously amiss. Next step is blood testing her hormone levels etc..

Milly is 9.5 months and started her 1st one last Sunday, she is a bit down in the dumps at the moment.

Penny is nine months and has had no signs yet. Can't remember how old her mama was but I'm going to ask now. I'm nervous about it all the time!

My little Pacsirta is 13 months and is in heat right now. I am still not sure when she started it ??? I mean, I don't know when the swelling started because it might have been for a long time.
Here are my mommy ramblings about her heat: https://www.vizslaforums.com/index.php/topic,6869.0.html
