Probably giardia or coccidia, or any number of other things. Just like people, sometimes dogs can catch a bug and develop a bout of digestive upset for no particular reason.

As long as the diarrhea is the only symptom and there's no lethargy or any other signs of problems, I wouldn't head to the vet just yet. I'd fast her for 24 hours. As much water as she can drink, but no food. Give her digestive system time to settle. Then when you start feeding again, start with small portions. You can also give dogs Kaopectate or Pepto Bismol to help with diarrhea. Dose as you would a child. NOT Immodium.

If you can't get her to drink or she appears to be getting dehydrated, or starts showing symptoms other than just digestive upset, then I'd definitely call the vet.
