Today, my dog apparently vomited straight down a heating vent while I was out. The stench was so bad that when I got home and the smell hit me, I threw up too. Looks like I'll be spending a few days with my mother as the house airs out. FML

  • One of the handiest things I have done with my dogs is teach them to barf in the bathtub. If it's just hunger pukes (just the yellow bile), you can just wash it down and if it's actual vomit, it's easier to clean up, then you wash the residue down the drain.

    Whenever they make that awful noise that tells you they're going to barf, you make a big fuss and rush them to the bathtub. It's kind of like housebreaking them as puppies. My boys will hop in the tub without being told now. Barfing doesn't happen often, but when it does, they'll even warn me when they feel it coming if there is a closed door between them and the tub. That way, in situations like the OP's, you might come home to a gross surprise in your tub, but at least it won't be on your carpet or in the heating vent or somewhere hidden for you to discover later.

    It does take longer to teach since dogs don't barf nearly as often as they go to the bathroom, but they do pick it up quickly.
