I am not sure that my dog is pregnant. She has had puppies several times before but we knew when my two dogs breeded together. Now, my female is older than the male so we thought that she couldnt have puppies anymore when the two of them had gotten together many times and she wouldnt get pregnant anymore and it has been probably 2 years since she had puppies. Recently we noticed that she had gained weight and her nipples and behind are swollen but I am not sure. I have heard that you can feel the fetuses on her sides and they would feel like little walnuts on the sides of her belly. I felt her side and feel little walnut sized lumps but I'm still not sure. I cant afford to take my dog to the vet right now so I was wondering if there are other signs that could tell me that she is pregnant like the tempeture of the dog during her pregnacy (i know that the temp. drops to 100 degrees before labor), or anything else. I would appreciate any sort of help. Thanks!!
