5/2/07 Possibly. They don't usually start showing signs until about 5 weeks, but swollen nipples can be an indicator. They can also have a slight clear discharge, which is rather like mucus. She may go off her food for a day or two and get very clingy. Wait another week and take her temp. A normal temp for a dog is 101.5, which can vary up or down .5 degree. A pregant girl will have a low temp, something like 100.2 to 100.8 would be normal for her. If you take the temp to early, it will be low from being in season, so wait until 4 weeks. Good luck with your little ones! Susan Plouff Mai-Ryms Poms Susan
