6 months is only the norm for a b itch to have a first season. All of mine, bar one, came in at around 8 months, and cycled at that interval until spayed. I did have one who came in bang on 6 months and then started cycling at 5 monthly intervals until I decided enough was enough. She wasn't up to my standards eventually in any case so although we kept her (she was a singleton and I became way too attached to let her go - and I did have a home lined up for her!) she was spayed. I suggest that you do the same - spay now so you don't have to bother about all this. Some vets may prefer you to let her have one season, but if you do this, you must make absolutely certain you confine her for the entire 21 days, plus a few. ps My vet wanted me to do this with my Whippet when I took her in to be spayed at 6 months. I waited until she was 11 months with no sign of her coming in and took her back. He spayed her and she's fine.

8 months is fine.... the larger built dogs often don't come in until about 8 to 10 months..... don't panic yet at all, but now she's this close wait until she's had her first before having her spayed.
