Depending on the temperatures where you are, your dog may be just fine, but if she has been playing a lot she may have her temperature elevated enough to worry you. Make sure she has plenty of water to drink and that she is behaving normally. If there are any other things that you notice, then you may need to take her to your vet for an exam. Fever can cause diarrhea so watch her bowel movements and see if she is drinking too much water. Anything out of the normal range should tell you she is having a problem and needs to go to the vet.

Thank you but she was just on the verge of sleeping, then streched and layed on her back, thats when i noticed it. It was EXTREMELY pink and VERY hott. I live in Northern NJ and its winter so its usually cold. But today it was low fifties. What do you think?

Oh, yes. If you notice her belly seems hot to touch then she may be running a fever. This may seem gross for some people, but if you have a thermometer, then lubricate it with KY jelly or Vaseline and see if your dog will let you check her temperature rectally. If it is higher than 103 then she IS running a fever! If she will not let you check her temp, at least make sure she has plenty of water to stay hydrated and get her to a vet as soon as possible. Fever can be an indication of infection.

If pinker than normal that usually means some sort of allergic reaction.  Most dogs are allergic to foods with corn, wheat or soy in it and a large number are allergic to chicken.

Not necessarily, a dogs tummy is usually very warm, and they usually will have a pink, white, or brown or black. If you think this is something other than just pink skin, then I would suggest that you take the pup to the vet and find out for sure. Hope this helps, good luck to you and the pup.

Do not worry so much... Since a dogs tummy is usually very warm, and they usually will have a number of different color skin... If this is something new... See where he or she is sleeping..sometimes dogs will sleep on warm... Heaters.. And even sleep on their back in the sun..

If your dog seems happy don't worry so much... If she starts acting funny or different then normal.. Take it to the vet..
