As you may have read in my other post, Maggie is now 8 months, and I believe she may be going into her first heat, after which, I am spaying her. My concern is that she has peed in her crate the last 2 days, and is very hyperactive (more than usual- borderline crazy!). She also is peeing tons more outside than usual and just seems off the wall. A couple male dogs were "hanging out" outside the fence yesterday morning when I let her out to pee, and she was running barking at them and what I almost call female marking - she would run squat, run squat, etc, as she was barking at them.
Is this excessive urination common around a heat cycle?
