Question:

How long normally is it from a sucessful conception (not familar with the proper terms, please bear with me)to birth?

I have decided on a Leonberger puppy, and was told by the breeder that her female was bred today.
Now assuming it is successful, how long til birth.  I know it's 8 weeks after that.

Man, oh man, I am dying here... hee hee... :D

63 days is normal, some may go sooner some may go a few days later, but, the magic number for me and so many others is 63
a good book to read is
The book of the Bitch
written by JM Evans and Kay White
fabulous educational material in this book.
