Dogs do not get colds, but this does sound like kennel cough. Kennel cough can be very mild to life threatening depending on the dog so keep a close eye on her. This is caused by a virus so there's nothing you can give her for it except cough suppressant and sometimes antibiotics for secondary infections. Make sure she keeps eating, doesn't develop a fever, stays active, and her breathing stays normal. Any change in her health you should be on the phone to the vet.
