Re: Looks like Pacsi's first heat is here!

AlmaPup, sorry, I didn't see your reply earlier... Did Alma start her heat? I hope everything went well

Just wanted to give an update on Pacsi and her heat. After the first loooooong heat, false pregnancy, another random heat two months later and an infection, Pacsi finally is having her first NORMAL heat. Looks like her cycle is going to be like her mama's - every 6 months. She did bleed more than the past few times but this time everything seems to be going by the book. Couldn't be happier for her! She's a LOT less hormonal, but I feel the first heat changed her forever. Even though she loves Sophie, she isn't the friendliest dog around other dogs, especially males....especially young intact males : Oh well, that's something we'll always have to work on. Other than that, she's still my sweet, little Pacsirta

I didn't want to start another thread about first season symptoms.

Alma is almost a year old, her sister from the same litter is in heat right now, and I'm kind of expecting Alma's first heat soon.

I noticed she licks herself more than usually, and she has some mucus on her female parts
Is this mucus normal?
It's white-yellow-y.

Hahaha

Sammy loves to meet Hunter, the vets office' mascot, a GSP.

Ummm, yes I have poop proof, more than one picture on my iPhone... You wouldn't want me to post them, would you?
Oh, did one a while ago.

So happy on Orijen....

You did not!!?? ;D ;D ;D

I remembered a story from past Wednesday when we went to see the vet. The technician cut Pacsi's and Sophie's nails. Sophie was soooo resistant, she hates her nails done. After a big fight, it was accomplished. To make Sophie happy, the doctor offered some cookies and asked what Sophie can do. I said she can do paw, high five, roll over. Vet did a few high fives and gave her a cookie. Then she goes to Pacsi and her bottom is already planted to the floor ready for the treat! Then she does a quick down to see if that helps, too! (We give bones, kongs and bully sticks in down position) The vet asks what can Pacsi do? After a big ummmm...... ummm...... I said: "She can hunt birds!" ;D I need to teach Pacsi some tricks for the vet's office. How is she otherwise gonna earn her cookies?! ???

Ehhh, that's exactly what Orijen did to Sammy. Must be the Hungarian blood line, LOL
I still have a kid shovel from the dollar store, used to put under his bum to catch the runny stuff...

That's why I'm happy with the new stuff...
Guy who sold me the first bag (NEW formula came out last month!) also gave me a can of pumpkin. I was so happy with the poop, next day, I took pictures of it and emailed to him ;D

Happy Paci is doing well once again

Re: Looks like Pacsi's first heat is here!

datacan, we actually feed Sophie Regional Red, and she has been in such great health for the past few years (knock on wood) that we're afraid of what would happen if Orijen ever stopped producing it.
Pacsi on the other hand can't handle it. We have tried a few times. First time my husband had fed it to her (a whole 1.5cup) without telling me....and I thought the poor thing was going to leave her whole stomach in the woods. It just went right thru her like water (ask OttosMama :-[ ). The other few times we tried mixing it for longer periods of time with her food, she got some really bad bumps on her tummy and the runs, of course. Now she's on Merrick "Bison & Sweet Potatoe" formula, and looks very healthy I'll need to look into this though...

Re: Looks like Pacsi's first heat is here!


Allowed us to transition (cold turkey) to Orijen Regional Red, no need for pumpkin anymore. We struggled with Orijen before. If I only about probiotic and prebiotic supplements

http://www.inclover.com/optagest_dogs.html

There are other brands but the petfood guy had this on the shelf. Looking at the bottle covered with dust, these kind of supplements are not popular with dog owners. Kinda pricey add to that Orijen Red is the most expensive, and it's easy to understand.

Found out from Rudy on a heated raw feeding thread, thanks guys.

Re: Looks like Pacsi's first heat is here!

Thank you, River, Mileysmom, and SkyyMax! Pacsi seems to be doing very good! Still full of energy and love

datacan, I'll have to look into the supplement market. I have never given any supplements before. BTW now that you started talking about Sammy's humping, I have caught Sophie on several occasions humping Pacsi Who knows what they need to sort out.... Pacsi seems to see it as a game and just continues playing with her :

River, thank you so much for the suggestion! I have never seen such a product... I am very tempted to try

It is bleeding day 8 for Pacsi. As I already mentioned, she is feeling well, no unusual behaviors. I feel like she's slowly calming down....as in growing up. I actually happen to love the puppy craziness, but she's a very serious puppy, and the "love" spurts make her look so funny
I have to say, this time around, she hasn't snapped at Sophie once. I feel like she's a lot less hormonal and a lot more predictable. My baby is growing up! :-*
