She is starting to show underneath, she was in heat around the week of the 21 of June.

Did she whelp?


Not yet, I am not sure exactly when she got bred. That's part of the long story, the two dogs didn't really get along very well although it had gotten a little better. They were jealous of each other when ever we were around them, or they tried to herd each other most of the rest of the time.
She is getting very close, she is getting more developed and is more cautious and not as ambitious when helping me with the cattle.

Not yet, she is getting bigger and showing increased mammary development each day. I must have been off some on the time that she was in heat.

I built an indoor whelping pen while my catahoula was giving birth in the kiddie swimming pool then when she was all done, I moved 14 pups to the whelping pen and not have had an issue then when the pups were 4 weeks old and starting to get weaned, they got moved to the outdoor kennel and they did fine.

Believe she is close now hasn't wanted to eat much since yesterday, and spends most of her time in her bed. She is panting and breathing harder today.

Edited to add that she now has 4 pups, and all seems to be going well so far.

Pregnant dogs need intensive care from their owners. They should be given healthy foods and exercise. They could also intake some vitamins and make sure that they are always clean and free from diseases,

Sounds like you are talking about a human vs a dog... If they needed all that we wouldn't have dogs today..

Oh yeah. They are tough as nails. Guess that’s nature. Couldn’t lay around in the wild or something would eat them. They take whelping in stride most of the time. Only thing I’ve ever personally seen affect them is calcium levels, no different than a cow. But it’s been very rare at my kennels.
