Please forgive my panic..This is my first puppy (the love of my life--how did I live without her?) Today, she confirmed my suspicions & has gone into heat. Other than keeping her away from all male dogs, I really don't know what to do nor what to expect.. Thus, I would appreciate any & all help. Thank you so very, very much!!

Your right...keep her away from male dogs. IF you have intact males in the house, this means keeping them in crates, that are firmly closed and in a room with a closed door, if she is out and about.

She should be over this in 3 weeks...and about 3 - 4 weeks later i would recommend spaying her, if you do not want to go thro this again.
