Puking Dogs

There's a squadron of F18 Super Hornets sailing on the USS Abraham Lincoln with tail insignia meant to be a fierce predator but actually looks like a puking dog. Bless their badasses, they owned up to it and have since been known as the Pukin Dogs.

This is to say, we had a puking dog all night last night. He's fine, ate his breakfast, he's looking at me right now wondering why I'm doing this instead of going for a walk.

We had a dog once that puked, and other dog just puked in sympathy.

My favorite dog puke story comes from a dear friend. He was living in Italy at the time, staying with a fellow up in the mountains. The fellow had a Rottweiler, and this one time, it ate whole a rotting boar. Didn't go so well afterwards. Eventually they all piled into a the cinquecento and started down the mountain, the poor rotty in the throes. About half way down, rotty, head between driver and passenger, let loose a long, ghastly burp, so bad they had to stop and get out and recover. After that, rotty's fine. Where are we going!? Dog after all.

What's your dog puke story?

  • Puka Dogs from this stand in a mall in Kauai are one of my favorite things ever. I've only been able to get them twice in my life but I think about that spicy lemon garlic sauce all the time

    Haha, way to turn this around!  Those look *so* good.

  • My lease favorite experience on the topic of dog vomit was this time roughly ten years ago when our dog got into the cat box (as she was want to do in her younger years). Anyhoo, later that morning I was taking her out for a walk through our garage and suddenly she pauses and the worst smell I have ever experienced emerges. She vomited some sort of liquified by stomach acid cat feces. Of course she could not wait until we got outside to do this too so I had to clean it up instead of just watering it down in the bushes or something easy like that. I had to get right down into it with paper towels and all that good stuff. I came incredibly close to throwing up myself. That was not a good morning. On the plus side, she felt much better having gotten it out of her system so at least there was that.
  • I have no pets in my life currently, but in those situations, I recommend having a swiffer (for hardwood/tile), a broom and dustpan w/handle + a bissel carpet cleaner (for carpets.)

    I bought this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008DBRFBK

    Mainly for the car, when I was doing Lyft/Uber pre-Covid.  It works a treat!  I bought it because I was watching The Detail Geek on youtube use it to clean carpets in cars.  It has come in quite handy in the car and around the house.  In fact, I busted it out just yesterday.  For the first time in close to a year, I decided to get a pizza from Marcos.  They don't deliver to me.  (Neither does anybody else.)  I went to pick it up, and when I got home, I realized it had leaked what had to have been at least 2 ounces (1/4 cup) of oil ALL over my front seat.  Sopped it up with a towel, sprayed it with upholstery cleaner, scrubbed it with a brush for 20 seconds, then used the bissell to extract for about 2 minutes.  Then used some stain lifter and extracted again.  All said and done, it took 5 minutes or so plus a few hours to dry and the seat looks brand new.  

    Not to mention the horror shows I used it to clean when I was doing rideshare.  
  • All is relative, and may the Force be with you.
  • Far out.  I was hoping somebody would start a good dog puke forum.  Just can’t pick a favorite. They’re all good because, well, they’re dog stories!  I will say this about dog puking in general...it’s the eyes, man.  I’m pretty sure the eyes are sayin’, “Look what I did, momma!”  Proud pup.  Proud momma.  Feel better?
  • The only thing better than an occasional good yak is a good regular poop. Outside, if you please. No, not the file room. The flower bed is fine. "It's fine! Good dog."
  • Bissell Stomp-n-go pet pads is my shameless plug.  I have two dogs and light colored carpet in the house.  I found these recently and they have been great for dog puke and messy situations.  My dogs are house trained but things happen sometimes and it doesn't take much to make a carpet look bad.  My yellow lab is almost 14 years old, still going strong but is a bit messier in the house than she used to be.  My little dog (a bichon-shit-zu mix) is mostly a good boy,  but thinks he shouldn't have to poop outside when it is rainy.  And we live in Seattle. 

    I wish these pads came in larger sizes, but they work well on most spills.  I think they use oxy-clean so might be a bit bleachy on darker carpet.

    I don't get this thread at all, but I'm 100% certain that if I ever form a punk band we're going to call ourselves Puking Dogs.
  • Damn straight.
  • I've got an 11 month old Chesapeake Bay Retriever and I swear the only time he pukes is in the middle of the night. It doesn't happen often but when it does, you're in a deep sleep and you hear a retching dog in the hallway (luckily he's courteous enough to jump off the bed before puking) and it jolts you awake. Then you have to go through cleaning it up and by that time you can't just go right back to bed. It's annoying when it happens but I love the monster to death. 
  • Amen, and ahh, men. Redbone here, and only God knows what he ate. But he's my hero, most of the time, all the same.
  • I am confused
  • I hear that all the time. What about?
