    Yes, just happened to me. It was actually about 3.5 months but shocked me. I wondered why she acted like an idiot that morning hunting. saw blood that evening.

    I've had a male for the last 14 years and just got a female pup a month ago. Not sure that I'm looking forward to that

    That is not an uncommon thing. Heat cycles in dogs average every 6 months usually, however the range of time between cycles is actually 2-9 months if I am not mistaken.

    Are you sure she went thru the whole cycle? Could be a split season... Or worse, there could be something wrong like a yeast infection or worse... pyo. I think if you can rule out a split season, I'd be going to the vet.

    Anything shorter than a 4mo cycle is normally not productive according to Dr Hutchison (repro vet).

    Im assuming she did go threw last cycle. It lasted a little over 22 days.
    Im thinking pyo means a utetress infection?.
    Thanks for the help

    Or it could be a simple urinary track infection.

    yes (uterus), I'd go to the vet. It's not normal regardless.

    there is very little normal about dog heat cycles. That said it may be worht a trip to the vet to rule out the above mentioned problems.
