Dear Polly, I hope your infection goes away soon. Just keep taking your antibiotics and try to enjoy the extra snuggles.
I remember when I used to go into heat. Mom always put my pretty puppy panties on and I got to stay indoors all day to rest. I don't have those nasty days anymore. I went to see our nice vet man one day and since then I don't get "those feelings" anymore. My husband Conner keeps waiting for me to be in the mood, but hey, he'll get over it and I know he loves me anyway. I do miss my cute puppy panties though.
I hope you feel better soon, we will think good thoughts for you.
Best wishes, Ivy (Vida's mommy dog)
