when i first got Latte in early Feb she was in heat. they didnt tell me she was in heat but wow, did she bleed heavy. Minnie and Tootsie never bled like that, and they would lick themselves and you'd really never even notice any blood. i think the way Latte is built it may be harder for her to reach.
also Latte stayed in heat for along time... not just 3 weeks. i think it was more like 5 weeks.
i did try those doggie panties, but she didnt keep em on.
now, she's spayed and i am happy , i dont have to deal with her being in heat
