Did i lose you?

Ok great, at least he has a way to try and maintain his hydration.

We cannot be too careful with young pups, especially if they are no fully vaccinated yet. I would be keen to have him checked out by your vet to rule out a viral infection called parvo as this can be very serious indeed for young dogs and can progress rapidly. I suggest that his second shots should be postponed if he is otherwise unwell, but I would be keen to have him checked out by your vet regardless.

He does'nt seem ill...just wont eat

He is likely not eating due to nausea. If he has been having vomiting and diarrhea he is showing signs of being ill.

we plan to go tovet today, just not open yet, its six am here...thanks for all your help

Giving ranitidine (zantac) by mouth as an antacid can help with nausea. It should be available over the counter from most pharmacies. Giving a dose of 1mg/lb everyb8 hours can really help settle the stomach down and improve appetite.
