Richard: a lump by her nipple does not concern me much. Swelling of the breast tissue before giving birth may be the cause. Pretty sure it is not a puppy in that location. At 2 years I would not worry much about breast cancer either. A veterinarian would have to see the spot to be sure. continue to watch her carefully and I hope her delivery is without problems.
