    DefaultTo answer Beerfish's question about nipples.....

    Here is Raven.


    She has 9 nipples that you can readily see. However, the pimple #10 should become a viable nipple once she's pregnant and has milk. She is not symmetrical; having 4 on one side and 5 on the other.

    Thanks for that, Laura. Is 9 the standard number? I used to count Megan's but to be honest, I've forgotten what number that was! She's the only female I've ever had, so this is not my forte.

    Ivy has a spare one like that on her left side, right next to a more obvious nipple. She doesn't hold still enough to count all of them...

    I'd say 9 or 10 is the standard number. Some bitches are oddies and some are even.

    So strange that Raven would be odd

    Ruby has 12. I thought that was weird... until Nola also has 12.

    This thread is about dogs right??????

    Is there a big problem if the mommy has more pups than viable nipples? Bigger chance of a runt of the litter kind of thing or are they good enough at taking turns?

    Yes, the breeder has to make sure they get rotated. We're about to find out since Quinn looks like she's expecting more than she has nipples. lol
