Heat Times Two

It is horribly hot here now. This is really limiting everyone's activity level. Molly spends much of her time lying in her fence in the shade or on a cool patch of floor. That's the one heat.

The second heat is Molly coming into season. Her heat started yesterday. She's intact for a number of reasons and we have no intention of changing that even though breeding is not in our immediate plans. This is great because it means we won't have to worry about her coming into heat at a less convenient time. Unfortunately it puts a bit of a stopper on training for a little while. I don't know how much I should try to teach her at this time. We also are pretty much stuck home--it is a very active vacation season, so there are tourists all over the place and many are not respecting the leash laws.

We don't want to risk a breeding, so we are very careful managing Molly right now. If she is out in the fence, we check on her regularly. She is on leash for all potty walks so there is no way she can run off. We're not taking her off the property on walks, because it would leave a drip trail that would attract males.

When she is in the living room, she has to wear panties so she doesn't leave those drips on things. I will try to get a picture later.
