First heat cycle

When we had Molly, she went into her first heat cycle at 9 months, to the day. Her cycle lasted 5 weeks. I was wondering how many others out there have had a female that went into their first heat cycle. Bella is going to be a year old this Sunday, the 19th. She still has not gone into heat, nor really showed much signs of doing so. I was just wondering how long to wait before a trip to the vet is in order. Its a long trip for us, and I am SURE that the vet would LOVE to see us make the trip, even if it is in the best interest of the dog, I have to believe they also see dollar signs.

From what I have read, beagles normally go into their first heat between 7-9 months old, and then every 6 months after that (approximately).

I've never had one take longer than 9 months for their first, but my Maya has her heat cycle every 5 months which is a little faster than most Beagles. If I was not obsessed with watching for the signs I would probably never know when my girls were in heat. Of course I have boys also and they help to keep them clean, but rarely do I EVER see a spot anywhere. I think it is very possible she has had a cycle and you were just not aware.
