Greetings -

I am a long time Golden Retriever owner, and about 4 weeks ago lost my older dog to a sudden bout with cancer. My younger pup (5 yrs old) went completely NUTS from the separation and after trying a few things, our Vet recommended a new companion for the 5 yr old. Having always had an interest in some of the giant breeds, I found a Newfie pup that was 16 weeks old - perfect according to the Vet, since the new dog wouldn't bee too young nor too old so as not to intimidate the 5 yr old.

So, yesterday I drove about 90 minutes to pick up out newly adopted family member...he's a really cute brown pup and seems to get along wonderfully with our 5 yr old Golden. However, he is refusing to eat (other than his puppy treats)?? I purchased the same food he was eating (per the breeder) and even mixed in a little pumpkin (again, per the breeder) since he got his final shots and rabies vaccine on Friday. He just won't eat. Then last night/this morning, he is throwing up small amounts of flem....not constantly nor a lot of volume, but he's gotten "sick" probably 3 or 4 times (with several spit ups each "event").

Any suggestions? I'm probably being overly cautions/concerned, but I've just never had any of my Golden's refuse food unless something was wrong with them.

Hoping it's just the stress of shots and a new home, but just in case, I thought I'd ask.

Thanks for any help....
