Puppy in heat?
Our lab is 9 months old now and as far as we can tell, she hasn't had a heat cycle. We haven't seen any sort of discharge and can't really see a difference in swelling of the vaginal area.
Lately, she has been traveling farther and farther on our property - large acreage and no people for miles. I'm wondering if she is just getting older and more curious or is she looking for love? BTW, she is always within hearing distance and comes when called but I don't want to overdo the calling for no reason.
I realize that labs mature very slowly so is it reasonable that she hasn't had a heat cycle yet? Could we please keep to the questions at hand and leave the controversial question of spaying to another site?
