Shini,  as some of you know, has been going through her heat cycle, but it has been going on for OVER a month & a half now. So when we read online how long she should be in heat it tells us that it should last about 21 days, no longer than 30. So we called  the vet & they believe she is going through a false pregnancy and we are taking her in to the vet in a about an hour. Has anyone elses dog went through this before?

Yes Pam, that is what we were wondering.....if this is why Shini has been all of a sudden sleeping in her toy basket utop all her stuffed animals. Also she has beeen treating them like they are her babies, licking their faces & all as if they are real, she herself even doing the cry that puppies do when they cry for their mommy. Strangest things we've ever witnessed, yet at same time it is soooo cute. We also read one's that go through this that have never had pups, will be good mommies. But we are sticking to the appt. we have for her to be spayed. Would love to see what her pups would look like as we feel she would produce gorgeaous pups. But to us it is just not worth it. Plus w/this trouble she has had to endure though this first heat cycle, we would hate for her to go through all this again & again........possibly.

Had a poodle years ago that went through this, she even gathered all the toys to nurse them.  Poor little thing!  :0(

We never had either, so we looked it up online. Interesting.

Our first dog had this!  She was panting and acting as though she was in labor and that's what the vet called it, may have even called it false labor.  I don't really remember all the details, this was over 10yrs. ago.  Sounds like things will be back to normal when she is spayed.

Oh goodness Shini Baby!  I have never heard of this condition.  I did think her heat was lasting an awful long time though.  Daddy is eally gonna have his hands full taking care of the ladies.  Hope she is better soon.

Di, yes thanks for the Facebook invite. And thanks for easing our minds on Shini's surgery. I wanted to be there w/her when she came out, but I am gonna be layed up, but Mike will get to be there w/her.

Wow sounds like she had a full day, and poor baby running a temp too.  The spaying should be a breeze. I have had four females now, and all came through that surgery great.  Keep us all posted.  Oh I see you found me or I found you and you friended me on facebook.  I had hoped to get a message to you before the friend request went out, but that did not happen.  OK let me run.

Thanks Di. We took her to vet & she had a temp of 103 (must be why she has been doing this adorable crying thing). he wants to rule out infection so they put her on antibiotics. And he suggested she be spayed asap as soon as she is feeling better if we werent planning on breeding her (which we are NOT). So we set up an appt. for her spaying on the 25th of this month. She was such a trooper at the vet today & it was busy in there & everyone was making over her ( as she was a true pug show off there LOL. They were talking about what a tiny pug she is. Also ran into one of the Dog Park owners & her cute doggie Buddy. We had never met them yet except through the Dog Park Facebook page & Buddy was hurting when he came out & wanted NOTHING to do w/Shini LOL. It was great to finally meet them, they were super nice. Oh & during her surgery if she hasn't lost her two other baby teeth, they are gonna pull them because her big teeth are already coming in.

Good luck at the vet.  Sorry I have nothing to help you here, all my pets were fixed before they ever went into heat.
