It’s sometimes easier for me to see, because I’m not involved. There’s an old saying my boss used to quote. “When you are up to your backside in Alligators it’s difficult to remember that the object of the exercise was to drain the swamp!”sometimes so obvious its too obvious
Is that always the same person? Was it the same person before she started crying? Does someone else come during the day without any problem? Could there be any unusual noises, road works for instance? If you get the chance, can you find out if she is still crying, and still at the same time?Last week she began to bark and cry in the afternoon - I know this as my neighbour told me. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . She says it was after the lunch time visitor had been and gone
At 6 months old she could very easily be fast approaching her first season, and although many bitches take it very much in their stride others do take it very hard, so changes in nature are not that unusual. My Anna would never take a titbit from your fingers when approaching a season, though she would quite happily accept it if you dropped it on the floor! Amy used to take great pains to tell me how ill she was and how it was likely that she would not see the week out!
Certainly I would start the toilet tissue test. During sleep any discharge tends to collect inside her, so when she gets up after a sleep give it a minute or so for any discharge present to drain down then gently wipe her vulva with a toilet tissue to check. A spot of bloody discharge on the tissue and you will know. Although the vulva swells, many, particularly at the first season, don’t swell until after the season has started, so that’s not a reliable guide.
