She has a UTI, I'll put money on it. I've had female dogs with those exact symptoms & both times that's what it was. Try to get a urine sample from her to take in to the vet; otherwise s/he'll have to catheretise her for a sample & that's no fun!

It can wait till Monday if all else seems fine. Things to watch for:
Extreme lethargy & refusing food & water.
Pale gums, pupils being differing sizes.
Dehydration - if you pinch some skin on her back & it stays kind of pinched up after you let go that's a sign.
Signs of significant pain.
Excessive drooling, panting, walking funny.

Urinary tract infections are quickly & effectively treated with antibiotics. Let us know what the vet says, hopefully she'll be all better soon.
