It makes sense, so you wouldn't have pairs of puppies lying on top of each other when suckling.  But so far as I can recall, pigs have them arranged in pairs...

Now I'm curious, but no way I'm searching "pigs nipples pictures" on my work computer...

In order to save Trace from using the company computer to look up questionable subjects.
I braved scorn and shock at my house and looked up pig nipples.
Indeed they are symmetrical.  Maybe a pig belly is wider than a canine and piglet placement is easy???

Are they? I'll have to check when I get home. I found this pic on my phone and you can see they start out symetrical at the rear anyway, but can't see well enough towards the front. What I want to know is who thought it was a good idea to put four nipples within about an inch of a wiener!😜
