    Has anyone on here ever had a surprise pregnancy in a bitch or knows someone who has?

    Just watched a program on woman who don't know they are pregnant until they give birth. So i wondered if it has ever happened to a bitch?

    A girl I used to work with found out she was pregnant at 6 months gone. One day she was skinny, as soon as she found out she just ballooned. Our faces = :yikes:

    Never heard of it in a bitch but I'm not a breeder so... :D

    My sister in law found out at 6 months. She had been drinking, smoking and doing loads of things you shouldn't do.

    Yeah. She went to gp for some tests as she was putting on weight and it wouldn't come off.

    I used to know someone who had a whippet. She had been mated but scanned no pups. 4 days after her due date the bitch got restless was digging everything that she would have done if she had gone into labour. Her owner took her to the vets were after a ceasarian she delivered a singleton pup.

    The thing is a week before the due date she had the bitch at ringcraft I put my hand on her belly and said I had felt a pup move.

    I knew of someone who had had their bitch mated took her for a scan and according to the scan was empty, so she went back to treating her as a normal dog withthe rest of her dogs put her back in her kennel instead of in the house, the bitch went along as normal didn;t put any weight on nor id she look like she was in pup, her owner totally forgot about the bitches due date as she was sure she was empty, she went in to her kennel boxing day morning which was they day afer her due date would have been to find her sat there with a litter of 3 pups. How she hid them I do not know but the pups and mum was quickly brought into the house and the pups grew up to be happy helathy little dogs.

    Take care
