Poor Glory is having a bad false pregnancy. Even know she isn’t having puppies her body still thinks she is having puppies due to the hormones in her symptoms. When the doctor did the ultrasound and said Glory wasn’t pregnant she said there was a 4% chance that she was wrong and Glory was indeed pregnant. Glory didn’t have any puppies as her due date was on Tuesday the 20th but what she did have was a busy buddy tug-o-jug.
Dr. G to the rescue to deliver another baby for Glory. Last year it was a duck this year a tug-o-jug.

Clinical False Pregnancy
When false pregnancy persists it can be a nuisance. The female dog can show the following signs:
- Mothering inanimate objects
- Lactating (giving milk)
- Abdominal distension
- She can even appear to go into labor.
Some female dogs are very sensitive to the hormonal fluctuations of their cycle. Diagnosis of false pregnancy is made by history and physical examination rather than by blood test. The key is to find symptoms of pregnancy in a female dog who is not pregnant. Symptoms generally become noticeable 6 to 12 weeks after estrus.
Look the baby comes with food in it’s stomach already how cool is that.
Glory has been showing all the signs of a false pregnancy, the other night she was panting all night long and then the next night she was under the bed scratching to make a nest for the puppies. She is even producing milk and not eating like she should. We will just wait it out and make sure 4% gets lots of loving and isn’t left out in the cold.
