Although Angel's vulva looks a little swollen, that just may be her normal structure, some are just a little more exposed looking than others. I do not see any pink tinge to her vulva, which you would normally see. Usually a female swells up considerably while in heat, and bloody discharge ranges from a few drops to gack. Xanny now has a stylish pair of my son's old underwear, I use the fly part for her tail, and put a sanitary pad in the proper place, then tighten it up by gathering it, like a pony tail above her waist. It's quite stylish.
Some females can have pretty strange heats, including the dreaded "silent heat" no swelling, no discharge, but it's a go as far as she and the male(s) are concerned. Remember, females don't actually have to tie w/a male to become pregnant, it just takes a few free swimming little sperm...

GreddyGirl:
It looks just like Sadie's!!! I have not seen any swelling or discharge! She seems to have chilled out a little and doesn't pay as much attention to her "area". She is acting her normal crazy self and I have not hade any male dog's knocking at my door, asking to take my daughter out. I think that it was a false alarm, but now I need to get her into the vet to get spayed ASAP!!!

I would like to thanks everyone for all the info and help that you have provided!!!

Try Pullups, you can get them in the 3 year old size and cut a hole for the tail. Your dog will give you evil death looks, but they fit quite nicely... and the 'Disney Princesses' were SO cute on Ruby's butt!
