Okay. Shelby has been in heat for roughly 2 weeks now. The discharge is now a tannish color which to what i've learned means she's receptive to the boys now. I'll just assume this is true since its not my question. Since she started her heat cycle, she totally reaks!!!! Its is normal for a female in heat to smell absolutely HORRIBLE?! I mean i almost cant stand having her in the same room let alone in the house because she leaves a trail. I'm actually tempted to take her outside (right now which is the middle of the night) and give her a good scrub down. I mean even Riley is staying clear of her. He's fixed so no worries there guys but when the king of stink is staying away you know its bad. So yeah, is it normal for the stink to be around while Shelby is in heat?
