One of my girls had such swollen nipples and was producing so much milk after her first season that people thought she was having pups! Throughout her life she had phantom pregnancies after every season, she would take the same soft toy to bed with her and curl up with it every night being very careful not to tread on it as she settled down.
The ones I have now are nearly the same, they all produce loads of milk and make nests but only two of them adopt soft toys as substitute puppies.
I wouldn't worry, it's just nature's way of saying your girl is developing into a adult.
Some bitches go through a dreadful time just after their season...all of mine have had phantom pregnancies, and some of them have produced enough milk to feed the five thousand (puppies that is) they go off their food....dig holes in the furniture and the garden, they get very depressed, this is all normal....
I use Sepia 1M for mine. A cause of three days, one powder each day at the same time....(any good homoeopath will provide this for you...but it must be 1M)
As for the bruising this could be from playing with the Collie puppies, but I should keep an eye on this for a wee while...
I hope that she comes round soon...good luck for the future for your wee girl.....
