Hi and welcome to the board. Your girl is gorgeous!
Lucky she managed to pass the sock, that would have been pretty scary. Glad she's okay!

|kjdreyer||She's a beauty! Glad she got that sock out on her own, why on earth do they like socks so much? Thank goodness my pup never actually chews on or eats our socks and shoes, and I am crazed about picking them up, but she loves to get a hold of them. She does this goofy little strut I can hear even before I see her, and I know she got ahold of something she's not supposed to have and is marching around with it. If she ever figures out that's my clue to track her down, I'm in trouble! Have fun!|

|AngelaA6||I'm glad she passed it! That would be scary I'd be doing the same as you with telling everyone no more socks where the dog can get them. Hopefully shes feeling better|

Very adorable girl!
I know for mine, she never lies. When she does a certain whine, she has to do diarrhea.. and she also warns me when she has to vomit. So my suggestion is that when i doubt.. Let them out and dont say anything and give them a chance to do their business. And if they didnt, take them back in and put them in the crate or wherever you put them. That way if they were whinning, barking, etc. for a reason you responded appropriately. But the no talking to them, is for if they were doing it to get "attention," which i know for mine, this is never true at night time!
Anyways beautiful kiddo, glad she was able to pass that sock out.. and welcome to the forums!

Newbie Here :)
I have finally joined these awesome forums after reading things on here for the last few months. Today I had my first negative experience with Nala, my 5 month old GSD.
I get woken up at 4am by Nala barking and running in circles in her cage. At first I ignore her, but about 10 minutes later I decide to tell her to shut up (I am a very upset person when I am being woken up haha), and she actually does. A minute later I smell a foul odor. I look and she had diarrhea in her cage. First time ever she has done anything like that in her cage. I take her outside and she has more diarrhea. I bring her inside, clean her cage and put her back to sleep. A couple of hours later, I wake up, look over, and she is vomiting. Once again I clean her cage and put her back in, and then go online to see why this might be happening.
The first thing that I see is people talking about Parvo and suggesting if a dog has such symptoms to take them to the vet asap. I decide not to feed her and I take her to the vet, and he says he doubts she has Parvo because she is very active and was drinking water normally. He rules out worms, but says tests revealed strange bacteria in her stomach. He prescribes antibiotics and prescription food and off we go.
Throughout the day she eats the small amount of food I give her and takes her pill, and drinks a bit of water. I take her outside and she pees, and then something completely unexpected happens. She crouches to poo, and out comes a sock. I was totally relieved that she passed it! I watch her constantly and can't believe she was able to snag a sock when I wasn't looking and eat it whole!
In any case, that is my introduction to the forums Here are some pictures of my Nala when she was little and how she looks now!
