I'm with Redy ... I never leave a bitch when things are ripe.

9:51pm Day 62 - I want to thank all that have replied! I'm not worried yet. She was bred on may 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th. Today is day 62 counting the day of the 1st breeding. 6:18am her temp dropped to 98.6, 5 minutes later I retested (just to make sure I did it correctly!) and it read 98.4, 12 hours later at 6:18pm her temp was 99.5.
So far nothing, she's eating, sleeping alot, not leaving my side. The only change is she wants to go out and potty more today,
I do not plan leave her side. I work ful time 5 days a week and am trying to figure out when this will all start happening so I can arrange it with work. I called in today, and looks like I will have to call in again. (they are gonna love me) But I refuse to leave her. Just hoping anyone out there can let me know the temperature deal.

Some dogs don't stop eating until they actually go into labour. I know all the books say that they stop eating but like someone in this post already said....dogs don't read books. If her temp was below 99 chances are you will have puppies very soon....but then again that isn't always the case. Just keep an eye on her. And I agree that you NEED to be there for the delivery of each pup, otherwise things can go very wrong.

8:15am (Thursday) Still no action. Am I correct on counting the days from the FIRST breeding? She ate a few bites of breakfast. I offered her her puppy Iams soft food, the one in the bag that is sliced in gravy. She licked the gravy and only ate a few pieces and wanted to go back to bed.
My Vet opens in 15 minutes and I'm going to call just to make sure things are on track. I ve been calling him everyday!
If nothing happens today/tonight my husband agreed to take tomorrow off and watch her and as soon as anything happens.....he'll call me. I'll be 50 minutes away, but I'll have time, as I'll have him call at the VERY FIRST sign of any behavior.
Her temp was 99.4 this morning.

Dixies temp dropped all of a sudden, then all the excitement began. If I remember, it went up, then dove. Within hours, that evening, the nesting and panting began.

Poor girl, I mostly remember the pain she was in, she was vocal for the first few, then it seemed to get better.

Watch the first pup or two, when she has it/them, she will frantically clean it. But a bitch can be too rough, Dixie was rolling that first one back and forth like a tennis ball and had to make her stop! before she hrt it. After the 3rd, she was like~Whatever, is it over yet???

Good luck.

11:18 am (Thursday) Nothing yet! All she is doing is laying on my lap. Pups are very active and her tummy is hard. Called the Vet to let them know whats going on and they were going to relay the message and get back to me if there were any concerns.

Yeah this temperature thing is really confusing me becasue in all the research of done (months of it!) it ALL states that is the clear indication. And I've been taking her temp for 3 weeks and I know her average is 99.9 in the AM and 100 in the PM. So yesterday morning when it dropped to 98.6 and 98.4, I thought here we go! And here we are 30 hours later and nothing.

I will supervise EVERY pup being born. For sure.

Ivy does the same thing. Her temp will drop then rise then drop then rise.
Sometimes its hard to be sure with the temperature readings. Feel the sides of her stomach. This will be a bit harder for you because you dont know what it feels like but....Feel for her stomach muscles to contract. It may take 5 or more minutes but they will contract as they get closer to whelp. After you have a litter you will understand what muscles to feel for.
My guess is she will more than likely whelp early tomorrow morning or tomorrow evening.
Good luck
