We have often wondered what happens inside our pregnant moms and what the puppies looked like at their stage in life. We have done some research on the Internet about what happens inside a pregnant dog and found it interesting. We have put together some pictures below and tried to show you the stages in a dog's pregnancy.
We hope you enjoy.
