Heatie time

I’m on my heatie time at the moment..otherwise known as ‘in heat’, ‘in season’ or something to do with the moon

It’s when:

  • I need more rest, extra naps and cuddles.
  • I see just one or two girlfriends for playtime at a very early hour on the beach, only for a few mornings during this time.
  • I release some droplets of blood every so often, but I clean that all up and wash myself lots so its not such a big deal. 
  • I do a lot more power walks on lead with Vikki, very early in the morning and very late at night, when everyone else is still sleeping (that way I still get my exercise and explore time). 
  • I tend to sniff and pee a lot more….I can’t help it.  We drive to where we are going for a walk so I can sniff different things and where I can leave as many pee-mails as I want without a concern that boy dogs are going to know where I live!
  • I don’t do as much home-learning sessions and no classes, since its the time to take things nice and easy. 
  • Vikki and I will hang out more at home between the walks.
You see, I will be attracting the boys who are programmed to follow the girls ‘in heat’ since this is the time to make puppies.
Arghhh! Not interested!

I’m waiting to meet a nice Ridgeback boy to start a beautiful relationship with him before I would even consider puppies…♥

I’m ready for our date Zola!
During heatie time, I have to be careful and keep a low profile, preferably in disguise, so that I do not attract the wrong attention from the local boys! 

Vikki uses this time (around 21 days) to live a little differently and tries to make it fun and interesting. I quite enjoy the change, but we do miss our beach friends – so we watch my most recent video of them to cheer us up 🙂

Sweet dreaming of my friends:
Back to play soon as I can – when my moon cycle has passed…

    Well, the extra cuddles and attention sounds nice. I’m sure it’s a short matter of time before a handsome ridgeback boy sweeps you off your feet and you elope into the sunset! The blood thing sounds like a chore though. =s I don’t know because I had my girl bits removed before my first heat! Momma-1 says if I had to do that, I would probably be a messy girl and leave little droplets on their shoes as early morning surprises. Hehe! Well take it easy! I’m sure it’ll be a short matter of time before you’re out playing with all your friends again.

    Hi Zola,
    yes, I perfectly know the feeling 🙂
    You know, I am now waiting for my usual fake pregnancy… it is about time, two months from the cycle… heat… or… well, you know what I am talking about perfectly!!!
    Do you have false pregnancies also or are you a better girl than me? 😉 Hope you are better than me, else your human might start having bad thoughts like mine about my tummy…!!!
    Take care 🙂
    Ciao Lucille
