Sadie is now close to her full size and weight and will be 8 months old within a week.

So I was wondering when to expect her first heat and what to expect from a female Lacy.

I don't want to be traveling this spring or summer with a dog in heat...

My females vary but between 9 and 11 months old.

Thanks John,
I've owned a few female labs that you could set you watch by every 6 months.
I didn't know if Lacy's were different because on their medium size.

Luck is not on my side. Its a long way for me to go only to have her locked up. Two events are scheduled in the months when she may come into heat. ---Bummer--- ~X(

Jemma came in the first time at eleven months. I think you will just barely get by!

One of the other females from that same litter came in last week, so Phil I would say any time now....

I'm worried, two of the females from my last litter have not come in and they are 1 yr old. I'm worried since they were line bred pretty tight. Keepin fingers crossed!!

Jerry, I have known females not to come into cycle till they were a year and a half.
So not to worry, they will come in soon or later
we sure missed you at the blood trailing

Thanks for the info...

:O3 Sadie has started to clean herself a little more but I do not see any inflammation.
I will keep a careful eye and document everything in my notebook.

Jerry
I have a Brittany that is heavy line bred...she is 8 now and has only come into heat 3 times...line breeding can definitely "mess" with their cycles IMO...
