There are a lot of different causes for diarrhea and vomiting. Sometimes it's just temporary (maybe he ate something he shouldn't have and this was his body's natural way of getting rid of it). If he vomits more than 3 times today or if his diarrhea lasts for longer than 24 hours, I would start to think about stepping in to prevent dehydration. If he is acting normal now and can keep some food and water down, it was probably just temporary.

But what about him Sitting and not wanting to lie
Dog Veterinarian: Heath Wilkerson,
 replied 9 months ago

That could be because his stomach is painful. We also see this with knee pain or back pain, so it's hard to say without examining him. Is he stretching himself out into a praying position (trying to stretch his abdomen out)?
