Do not leave her alone from here on in. This is her first litter? How old is she? Aw now I gotta scroll back and see if I've missed it. If it's her first, keep a close careful eye on her. Dogs give birth all the time, and dogs can get in trouble giving birth all the time too, so leave nothing to chance.
Be prepared for anything that could go wrong. be sure you know exactly what to do to save any puppies that may need you to intervene with medical assistance, should it happen. God forbid it won't, but at least be ready for what might be thrown at you.
