I think Gaby is strating to come into season, I've noticed that her vulva seems to be swollen and she seems to lick more often and has a decressed appetite....So other then the obvious precautions like not letting her out of my site while outside and keeping her on leash at all times from other topics I have red on here, should I totally avoid walks on the beach or were there may be unfixed males around?...would there be a chance to intercept if a male should happen to come around us?...I will be getting her spayed after this first heat, and I definitely do NOT want any accidents to happen...

Definitely avoid any public places...You know that old saying "where there's a will, there's a way"..It's true when there is a bitch in season around....What Cindi suggested with the boys pants, that would be good..What you can also do, is sometimes they do have a strong smell, use some unscented wipes to help keep her clean back there...To be on the safe side, figure close to a month before she's clear...they say 3 weeks or more, so I always err on the side of caution :)
