Cyda is now showing signs of pregnancy (puppies due at easter!).  At 5 weeks into her pregnancy, her nipples are erect and pinker than normal.  This is one of the early tangible signs to look out for.  Her ribs are also wider than normal – a sure sign that the puppies are tucked away under them.  The “football tummy” doesn’t appear until around 10 days before the puppies are due.
