(no subject)

So, we finally got ourselves an adorable little beast a few months ago. She's about 5 1/2 months old now, and uhhh...this might seem like a stupid question, but this is my first puppy, and my boyfriend was in college when his previous dog went into heat, so he's not sure if this is a sign of being in heat, either. Anyway, I took my BT out to go to the bathroom in the yard, and she went #2, and then did this weird little thing where she looked like she was trying to wipe her butt on the ground. Sorta sitting up, with her butt on the ground, scooting forward a few times on her butt. Is she doing something with her glands or is this some sort of pre-period/heat thing that female dogs do? I would call the vet (and I might, tomorrow), but I thought I'd ask you guys first.

And, with that aside, let me introduce you to Pippa...
