9/9/06 No there is no way of telling for sure that she is pregnant until you are able to do an ultrasound or a radiograph both of which you should ask your vet about. Ultrasound can be done much sooner then a radiograph. I feel sorry for your dogs, breeding 2-3 times per day for over a week is way way to much!!! Your male is also too young for breeding, he is only a baby. You are lucky there were no injuries or permanant damage. Also lucky your female is at least an adult unlike the sire. I hope that you will take better care of the puppies then you did of the parents during the mom's heat. And I hope that you will educate yourself before the next time you breed so you can avoid being labeled as an irresponible backyard breeder. And last but not least i hope you are aware of the risk of C-section in small breed dogs. You should ask your vet about it while you are there. Poms are labeled the "heartbreak" breed for a good reason! The puppies are extremely fragile, sometimes even the best breed Kaleena
