Season!

Post by gilly39 » 02 Jul 2007, 21:40

Well my worst nightmare has come true... we are going to Scotland next week and Dave just shouted up to say there was a spot of blood on the kitchen floor... my heart sank and when I wiped Charlie's bits, some more blood came off. She isn't swollen very much and isn't showing any more signs..

I am gutted... the cottage was chosen specially for her as it is all on one level in open grounds. I now have to decide whether we can manage to take her and be extra vigilant or book her into kennels.

Where we have booked, it is literally in the middle of nowhere.... if she wasn't too bad and we decided to take her, would she be OK off the lead with no other dogs in the vicinity?

This is the icing on the cake or what has been a horrible few weeks... :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

Hi,
I would take her and not to worry. There is a lot more open space if it is the highlands. If you do see another dog, just put lead on smartish. Have a lovely Hol

Ah thanks... I really had no idea on this one.. expected everyone to say dont go.. I've found her 'nappies' on EBay and have them ordered... Maybe she wont be too bad.. we can take a baby gate with us and her crate... and stick pants on her when she is inside... Oh my baby is a wo-man...

Do they ever got mischievious when in season... she is being a right little minx... no sign of feeling sorry for herself. She went for Dave's crotch :shock: tonite but I think that was accidental!

I found Rosie a little bit mischievous more so at the start. She totally wreaked her bed when I went out one day - that was totally out of character she had had that bed for months :roll:

They can get mischievous, yes.
And don't forget that it's not always the dogs that go hunting for the bitches. I have heard of bitches that run off to find a dog when they are in season. It's best to keep them on the lead unless you can guarantee that there are no other dogs within sniffing distance.

Thanks for all of your advice.... She is dripping quite a lot of blood but she lets me wipe her and this encourages her to lick herself (as I read on here). Also when I offered her a treat to get her to lay down for me, she snapped at my fingers.. believe me, that is very unusual for my usual gentle Charlie.

We have a long lead which we can take but hopefully there will be some time we can let her off... I always wake up early on holiday so maybe I can take her out then.. I will not be silly though ... only if I think I am really safe.

Silly question time.... will she be OK going in water when we are away?
