Before she goes into labor her temperature will drop. She will start to "nest" or want to find a quiet space. She may refuse to eat or drink. Beginning labor she will likely moan and/or pant.
Here is a good website to get more details:

Good Luck!

With having Zoe's mother & grandmother you should know what to look for by now...Also, you need to be talking to a vet about this as she is such a small dogs & there very likely could be dangerous complications for her.
I hope the father is a small dog too.
