What color is the vomit? How often has she vomitted? Is it increasing in frequency or seems to be occasional? Is she eating and drinking? Is she throwing up after eating/drinking? does she have fever? probably best keeping away solid food for now, and make sure she drinks enough water, you can boil a cup of rice in 2-3qt of water and give her to drink that to soothe the digestive tract, perhaps adding a small chunk of chicken to boil too if she isn't drinking water (make sure it cools down completely). It can be nothing, but if it is increasing in frequency and happens soon after drinking water - even if the discharge is just water you may want to consult a vet

***UPDATE***

About an hour and a half ago I took her out. She pooped this "rope" of cloth fibers. It wasn't a sock or anything like that, just ropey and long. (about 9-10 inches varying in thickness from a single strand to quarter sized. It didn't want to completely come out so I had to pull the last bit out. I didn't have to pull hard or anything. I called the E-vet and told them everything. They said to feed her some food and see if she throws up. So far so good. We even went for a walk around the block. I know I didn't think she was acting weird this morning, I just thought she was lazy. She is running around like a mad dog now, playing like her normal self. If anything seems abnormal she's going for x-rays.

I noticed the blanket in her crate had a big piece missing...wow. She must have chewed this up and ate it within the last day or so. I feel terrible for this. I should have known to not leave her with a blanket. I guess it was just by coincidence that she was sleeping in our room last night. My poor little girl. I just pray that she's ok...

...she is currently zoomieing around with her bone in her mouth and trying to bite my wife.

Oh my goodness, what they won't eat. Glad the vet's on it. She must have had nasty indigestion

Ohhh... poor thing. One thing I do when I'm looking out for things like this is to give lots of belly rubs. Cassie loves it, but it gives me a chance to check for any sensitivity in the stomach areas.

Hopefully what came out was the last of it...

My last golden did that as a puppy - ate parts of the comforter we put in his crate. Luckily he pooped it out and suffered no long term or serious ill effects. Hope your puppy continues to do well!

My friends pup started throwing up one night last year. She's been with her all night and she was certain he hadn't gotten in to anything. It kept up for a while and she went to do some investigating... upstairs (away from where they'd been all day) she found one of those huge easter eggs torn open all over the floor. When she went to the washroom for 2 mins, the dog must have ran straight up there, ate the chocolate and zipped back down to the living room before she returned. Dogs are swift and sneaky!!

Glad to hear she's feeling better. If she starts up again, call the vet - if nothing else, you'll get peace of mind!
