She's 8 months old and her first heat is 12/12/2013 (recently). I've notice today (Suppose to be the 6th day of the heat) her vulva aren't swollen like when she's during the 3rd/4th day of the heat... It make me confuse. Is she having a abnormal heat (split heat) or something is wrong?

One possibility is the first heat can be like a pseudo/adolescent heat.

My female bullmastiff mix had first(pseudo) heat at 7 months and then full first heat at 9 months. Since then she was every 6 months twice a year.

Other possibility is this is her real first heat and you will see more swelling as the days go by. I generally find main swelling after 8-10 days

Idk, but I think probably it's false heat (?) no sign of the heat again today

Might be she just had a very short cycle, being her first heat. Or she could just start up from the beginning again in a couple weeks (split heat).
