Thank you for your post!
It is possible this is nothing more than just plain stretching...
Some dogs can stretch their legs like this when they have belly pain - but if she is eating well, not vomiting, normal poop, etc - this is less likely...
But - if this is not normal muscle
stretching...what else could this be?
Using a little breed discrimination, this breed is predisposed to back problems. What I am referring to specifically would be back pain due to the start of a herniated disc.

If these stretching signs continue, I would recommend making an appointment with your veterinarian for an evaluation. They will be able to feel the hips, knees, and do a neurological examination to look for back pain.
If they find back pain, decreased activity and several days of an anti-inflammatory pain medication will likely be discussed.
