Richelle, I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. I suspect that Dora has fnished delivering her pups at this time. Has she become more attentive to them? Primaveras (first-time bitches) and dogs very attached to their owners may not be the most attentive moms. You may need to sequester her away from you with a nesting box in a quiet unlikely to be disturbed area so she has no distractions and check in on her every few hours to see if she's nursing and aid pups in finding nipples.
