Golden Retriever Questions

A Visitor asked the following question on 12/7/2007
I am starting to get concerned about my dog. I believe she is pregnant and it is starting to get really close to her due date. I figured it would be in between December 4 - December 11. She is a Golden Retriever and her nipples have been swollen for a little over a month now. Her rib cage is round but not really round. From what I have read about pregnant dogs, their rib cage should start to get really round. Is this normal for a large dog? Or maybe do you think she is only going to have a few puppies, not the average of 8? She has started whinning and moaning every so often like she is uncomfortable. So I'm pretty sure she is pregnant, not going through a false labour. If anyone has experience with Golden's or other large breed pregnant dogs, please could you give me some advice. Thank you.
