My dog is around 32 lbs and periodically experiences early

My dog is around 32 lbs and periodically experiences early morning vomiting. He vomited three times this morning (around 7:40am...waking me up) and it was white foam with small deposits of yellow. He went outside as normal and went both pee and poo (looked normal) has consumed water as normal but refuses to eat. He seems to have extra saliva in his mouth (from the way I hear him smacking periodically). He is currently resting but I'm still concerned.

I adopted an 8 year old male poodle (15 pounds) on 12/17/16.

Hello Pearl. I adopted an 8 year old male poodle (15 pounds) on 12/17/16. Peanut is originally from South Carolina. Peanut has had diarrhea since day one when I adopted him. His stool did get harder for a few days during these past 4 weeks. I was on vacation for the past 7 days and my dog sitter reported that Peanut has had diarrhea and is pooping all over the house 5-6 times daily. I picked up Peanut last night and yes, he has pooped 6 times in less than 24 hours (5 of those times in the house). The stool is becoming more and more liquidy and I have noticed some blood in it. Peanut is also drinking water a lot. Since 12/17/16, he eats constantly. Peanut is very alert and active. I tried calling my vet but have not received a response (perhaps due to the Martin Luther King holiday weekend). PaulaJA: I'm sorry to hear that. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about my?Customer: No.
