    Yep if the online calculators say she is due then she is due.. it sounds about right.... 9 weeks.
    If she hasn't delivered in 2 days take her to the vet.

    Should happen by tomorrow as long as you know the exact day of mating.
    Unlike humans, dogs don't tend to go over unless there is a problem.

    Pretty didn't pant. She was with me, completely normal, she got up, walked down the hall to the whelping box. Lucky I got up to go to the kitchen..looked down the hallway and she was "hooking" got there just in time to watch the first being born.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    Approx from 58 to 63 days from mating. The actual date needs to be calculated from ovulation rather than mating. So if you have any record of the date that she became receptive (ie. standing for the male) you will be able to predict much more accurately.

    A vet check around now can't hurt if you're worried and able to get to one.

    The online calculator goes from the matings rather than ovulation

    Some dogs don't pant but most do.

    Ok, so if you don't know ovulation date, she will be due in the range of 29/12/11 and 2/1/12.

    So I wouldn't be panicking just yet. Does she have milk? Has she tried to make a nest in her whelping box?

    And, most importantly, do you have a thermometer? If you start taking her temp twice a day you will notice a drop about 24hrs before whelping starts.
