Hello,
I am sorry to hear you are worried about your little dog. I am a veterinarian, and will do my best to help.
Pregnancy in dog is 58 to 71 days, so the 67 days before was about average. The problem is, you don't know which of those 13 days is when she got pregnant. If she didn't "take" until the 5th or 6th mating, she would only be 62 days now.
So I would not be worried just yet.
You might have an Xray or ultrasound done to see how many puppies she has and how big they are.
I think you just have to wait and let Nature take its course. If she is not in distress, or nesting, and is eating and drinking well, she is just not ready yet.
If she starts to act uncomfortable, stops eating, and/or starts pushing and nothing is happening, that is when it is time to take her to the vet.
Let me know what else I can answer or help with.
