I don't know anything about pregnant dogs, or pregnant anything for that matter, but have you been seeing a vet through out the pregnancy? If I were you I would schedual an appoinment yesterday.
I wish I could be of more help, but I really think if you haven't had a vet involved, now is the time to start.

Here are some signs that you should seek medical care (which came from an article on pregnant dogs that you might want to look at....)

http://www.marvistavet.com/html/body_gi ... ppies.html

CALL YOUR VETERINARIAN IF:

30-60 minutes of strong contractions occur with no puppy being produced.

Greater than four hours pass between pups and you know there are more inside.

She fails to go into labor within 24 hours of her temperature drop.

She is in obvious extreme pain.

Greater than 70 days of gestation have passed.

Is she showing any signs of labor/contractions

Is she acting sick, throwing up, lathargic or anything else weird?

Either way CALL YOUR VET and take her in for a wellness check and sonogram ASAP

According to previous posts, Diamond was 6 months old in January.

May I ask the original poster why she was bred? I assume no research was done..

Well that just sucks a puppy having puppies! That is part of the problem right there IMO. Please get her to the vet

Well, just learned this in Animal Sciences 101 today, the average gestation period of a dog is 63 days, but there can be a variant from 58-58 days. In other words, get your dog to the vet ASAP!

no she's not 14 months she's just a lil over 2 years. the picture i posted was when she was 6 months. i was a old picture. but the breeding took place when i was out of town and my dad was looking after my dogs. never meant for this to happen.

A spay/abort would have been a good choice.

Yes that was the gestation time I went off of...

all dogs are different and if he was out of town when it happened , I'm wondering if the dates he counted are actually correct. I'm glad that she is not a puppy heself. Still I wouldn't wait to get her looked at

But.... in a post in late may you said your girl was 11 months old. Which wouldn't make her more than 2 years old...

I suggest you make 2 appointments to the vet- one to find out whats going on with you dog and her puppies, and another to get her fixed so that this accident doesn't happen again.

Are the puppies going to be mutts? I suggest you start advertising now for safe and loving homes.

Some future advice on the puppies-

Get them their initial shots before adopting out. It might be a little expensive, but you could ask for an adoption fee which covers this. You could also have them spuetered early, and again, have the adoption fee cover this procedure.

Make sure your dog is comfortable and is not participating in anything too strenuous. Does she appear to be in any pain?

EDITED to ADD: if they are mutts, a lot of people (sadly) arn't willing to pay much of an adoption fee (if any). But please refrain from the "free to a good home" idea, as many of those homes are not so great.

Forget the age of the dog, forget the mutt factor, forget everything except the vet's phone number.
First time moms can often suffer complications, and 70 days is too long for comfort. Vet visit a.s.a.p.!!

66 is the full duration but like humans they can go longer... it is not unheard of to go 10 days over for a dog, but not on a first litter. Especially if it is a young dog, under 12 months old. I would assume save your dog, and the pups and call or go to a vet asap.

I personally would have done a spay/abort when I found out she was pregnant.

Which is more important, mom or pups? Get her to the vet, right away.
