If the dog is an intact female, who was recently "in heat" and had the opportunity to mate, she may be pregnant. If she hasn't been in heat recently, or didn't have the opportunity to mate, she may be going through a false pregnancy. If the dog is a spayed female, or a male, the enlarged nipples can be a sign of disease, so a trip to the Vet is in order.

Why do your nipples get hard when you are cold?

Nipples get hard in the cold in order to preserve heat. If a nipple is exposed to the cold the automatically contracts, and this in turn causes the nipple to become smaller, wrinkled and hard. The reason this happens is to reduce the amount of surface area on the nipple that is exposed to the cold. As a result of this the body losses less heat and the amount of energy required sustain homeostasis (keeping normal body temperature) is decreased. Decreasing surface area of the skin is the ultimate reason why nipples get hard when it is cold.
