Possible intestinal or stomach block?
Yesterday my 11 week old girl had diarrhea. I didnt think much of it as shes had soft stool off and on since we brought here home. Then this morning i let her out and it looked like she was constipated. She was in her "pooping stance" and walked halfway across the yard without anything coming out. Then about ten minutes later she came and threw up. Shes not lethargic and shes eating. What do you guys think?

I would get her to the emergency vet. Or your vet. That sounds exactly like a dog I had with an obstruction, and he needed emergency surgery.

Sorry - I missed the "she's not lethargic and she is eating part". My dog wouldn't eat and seemed to be in pain.

I would call the vet though. Little pups can dehydrate quickly. With a round of the runs she may have the sensation to poo even though she is empty but it sounds like she has picked up something (virus/bacteria).

she has colon irritation
which is why she is walking
around in a pooping stance
worth a vet check
perhaps worms or something
but could be early parvo too
you cannot be too careful

ok good news everyone! Shes ate all her food when i got home, shes been playing and acting normal, and we just went outside for a little and she pooped just fine!:) It was well formed and looked normal, and earlier when i was cleaning her throw up i noticed what looked like toilet paper chunks. So thats what i think is the cause.
