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 got Katie about 4 weeks ago and she was about 9 months old, 2 weeks later she started her first heat cycle and is going into her 3rd week and it is starting to go way a bit now. I actually had her scheduled for a spay and she went into heat so my vet told me to wait until a few weeks after her heat ends to be spayed. The only weird thing I find with her is that she pees alot but I read that it is normal, if she is still peeing like a trooper i will be having that checked in a few days when she gets her booster needle.
