I am sorry to hear about Versace's illness. As a puppy, there are many things that can be making her vomit and among them are either an infection (viral, bacterial, parasitic) or a foreign body obstruction caused by eating an object that has become stuck in her intestines.

Given her age and that these things can be life threatening, I recommend taking her in to be examined by your veterinarian. If you do not have a veterinarian for her yet, I recommend finding the hearest 24 hours facility and taking her there to be assessed and treated appropriately.

In the meantime, I recommend withholding food and water as this can be making her vomit more. If she had not vomited in 4-6 hours and you would like to continue treating her at home you can feed her a bland diet consisting of a single lean protein source (chicken, beef, low fat cottage cheese) and a single carbohydrate source (plain pasta, white rice, etc) and see if this helps. However if the begins vomiting again after eating it or if she is not eating it when you offer it to her, she definitely needs to be examined by a veterinarian.
