Hi Ziggyppz,

Sounds like behavior associated with pseudopregnancy. Is she spayed? Removing the pseudo puppies (the stuffed animals) and distracting her with other play items, walks, time with you all, will help to eliminate the behavior.

If she continues or seems ill in any way, please contact your veterinarian.

Dr. Sandy
