Today was Kavik's fourth barkday and he got to come to work with me. Toklat also came as did their friend the GSD puppy Aziza.

We took them all over to the new house at lunch so they could enjoy the new yard. And enjoy they did. Its kind of warm today - almost above freezing and the snow was very wet and very deep. The snow in the yard is up to Aziza's chest, and my boys are both smaller than Aziza. They played for about an hour, like maniacs and then lay like happy badgers with bad tails in the snow.
Unfortunately, the snow was warm and Toklat ended up with the worst snowballs all between his legs on his belly. We had to take him inside and put him in the bathtub to get rid of them.
Can you pam spray the whole crotch of a dog in the snow? think it would help? Its not often that warm out with fresh snow but it would be nice to have a way to let tok go outside without getting a bath.
Aziza is seven months old, and un-spayed. She is suddenly kind of cranky about boys sniffing her butt, and is extra-cranky with her brother ollie, and very snuggly-mushy with her mom. Boy dogs seems extra interested in her butt. Does this sound like heat?
I ask this because i was concerned about letting the boys play with her, but there was no sign of any interest in Aziza butt from either of my boys. Just wrestling. She also was not grouchy with them, at all. Her mom said she was the best natured she had seen her in about a week.

During the move of furniture we were planning on leaving tok and kavik at Katy's house, and i was a little worried about the heat thing. Toklat is intact, and Aziza-Toklat puppies would not only be ugly but they might be the worst of toklat combined with the worst of aziza, which would be really bad.
The boys can stay in a crate here, and drive back and forth to the new house with us, if need be. What would you do?

She could be going into heat. If it were me, I wouldn't let them stay at your friend's unless she is VERY experienced in owning an in-season *** around intact dogs.

We are going through this first heat together. We have no clue what we are doing.
I will keep the boys with me. They can have a sleepover at cousin aziza's some other time.

Probably a good idea. Emotion: smile Bitches can get really snarky to others but very lovey to their owners when going into heat. Better not to take any chances! I've never owned an intact *** and an intact dog at the same time. I am watching the Corgi puppy like a hawk and she will go off to my breeder-friend's house for her season (no intact boys) while I keep the intact Pug here. Nowthose would be some oogly puppies!

ok, not being snarky, just curious... why not just fix one/both of them?

Well, because you can't show a neutered animal in AKC shows, and Willy (Pug) will be used at stud, and I may breed the Corgi in the future.

well there you go. i didn't know they were both show dogs. that's cool. i'm often torn between my desire to show a dog at some point, and my desire to save every pit bull in the pound.

Possibly. Darcy went into her first heat at about

7 months.Terri

There's a novice Siberian musher in Maine who has money problems and had to rehome some of his dogs earlier this year. He can't afford the surgery to have his cryptorchid male neutered. One of his females came into heat and he, being a basically slovenly dog person, allowed his cryptorchid male to tie with the female (his full sister, incidentally) and yup, she's knocked up. Musher is pleased; I'm about as disgusted with a dog person as I've been in some time.
