Awww, thanks for asking. :D Clean bed this morning and I gave her a regular size breakfast. I'm still not letting her out till I can mow the yard super short and be sure there is nothing in the grass I'm not seeing. I'm just afraid someone might have thrown something in the yard.

The 2 nights before this happened, she asked to go out late at night, like 9:30 or 10:00, and she never does that. The first time I let her. The next night I told her no and she whined at the door. There was something out there she really wanted and I have no idea what it was. Then she got this diarrhea.

Last night I put a puppy pad in her playpen but it was unneeded. Bless her heart, it was pretty sad to see her in a messy playpen those two mornings. She didn't get anything on herself, but I just hope it wasn't like that for her for too many hours. I got up early this morning and checked her to be sure it hadn't happened again, then went back to bed. She's a very clean dog, they could have named her Daisy... :D

:thankyou:

Reminds me of little routines we have we our pets. We know their quirks, but continually question ourselves. Penny is probably the ideal dog as far as going out. She goes out first thing in the morning, depending on who is home, she either stays in with one or both of us, asking to go in and out occasionally during the day and one final out in the evening. If she ever asks to go out in the middle of the night, I will say "wait just a little longer, its not time yet". If she lays back down, we all go back to sleep; if she come again, I know something's up and will let her back out. Each time, she goes to the door, we have this ritual...I hold her head in hands, look right into her eyes and say "No barking and come right back". give her nose kisses and she is out and usually right back in.

It can drive you crazy wondering what they may have gotten into. Hope Dolly is all better as of today!

Glad she's feeling better. Diarrhea in a handicapper ain't pretty!
