My new 5 1/2 month old Basset "Annie" is in heat at such a young age...it's been 11 days now...when will it end...? how long will it last???...I have to have her on the leach 24/7 ...I've had dogs all my life but they were pretty much all males so I'm not used to this :huh: she used to be a little angel and now seems her whole character changed from being house trained to now peeing on my daughters bed...here is a pic of the little devil..we were waken up at 1:30 in the morning from stray dogs roaming the yard..sorry to vent but just anxious to get it over with...oh forgot to ask..how will I know her heat is finished ? by counting days or ???
