    Default Brooke acting weird...

    Yesterday we went my boyfriend's parents to winterize our jet ski. Brooke came with us and ran around the yard like a maniac, as usual, for hours. Then all of a sudden she started throwing up ALL over. At least 15 times all over the yard. It was chaos, chasing her to stop her from re-ingesting it, and stop their two labs from doing the same. Poor baby, so I put her on her leash and put the boys inside. Gave her some water and she seemed fine, exhausted but fine. She ate fine last night and this morning. But the while we were getting ready for work this morning I noticed she wasn't right under my feet as usual, "Uh oh.." My boyfriend was upstairs in the bathroom so I figured she was with him, nope, I found her just sitting in her crate in our bedroom. This is NOT normal for her. She only gets crated at night and until recently it was a battle to get her in there. Within the last two weeks she has gotten into routine and will walk right in but only at night, otherwise when she's in our room (while we're in there) shes on our bed playing with the comforter. I was like "Oh no...what did she do..." I looked everywhere, for an accident, something chewed up, anything, but found nothing... Which makes me more worried. If she had peed on the carpet or something and felt guilty that would explain the sitting in the crate, but not finding anything now I'm just worried...

    Eventually they will think of their crate as a safe resting place, so perhaps that's what has happened. However, I'd watch her carefully because perhaps her tummy is still not quite right. (could she have eaten something before the throwing up happened?) What you have described is not quite enough to warrant a vet run, but enough to watch carefully IMO.

    If she was running around heavily for hours as you say, was she drinking water during that time? What did the vomit look like?

    yes she went inside a few times to get some water in between running around. and the vomit at first was (hopefully you have not just eaten or plan to eat soon) foamy/mucusy but then was her breakfast from 5 hours before as she continued. she could have eaten some grass or something that didn't agree with her, but I didn't notice anything out of the ordinary in the vomit.

    Foamy/mucusy can sometimes be from overheating, but since her breakfast came up -- seems like she ate something that upset her tummy. Keep an eye on her, but she most likely will be fine by dinner time

    The foamy/mucusy is probably from the running around and getting too hot. This can cause a respiratory issue sometimes, that's why it's good to have lemon juice handy to put in their mouth to desolve the mucous, if it gets so bad they are having trouble breathing. She may have eaten something in the yard that did not agree with her, I would just watch her, hopefully she will be better this afternoon.

    Is it weird that the words "vomit" and "foamy" and "mucusy" don't bother me at all? I mean really. Describe bulldog anything and I'm good with it. You causally mention anything vomit related to my daughter and she's running, screaming out the door. ha ha

    @Sarah - Hope your baby is feeling better today!

    perfectly fine. we had a bunch of people over last night (my parents, boyfriends parents, boyfriends brother and girlfriend) and she ran around all crazy and excited. Plus her antlers came in the mail and she was loving that. But she is eating and pooping normally and no more vomiting so I guess she just got too worked up the other day. And it must have been like you said, that she is starting to like her crate now.

    Wonderful news! Bea and Bo both use their crates for a respite from the goings on around here. Most of the time, they're at my feet, wherever I happen to be, but if I am not here, they're in those crates - sometimes together in one, sometimes not. This morning, they got up, peed and pooped and went back into the OTHER'S crate. ha ha
