so my dog Jorah was looking so cute sleeping on the couch and I went over to gently huggle him. I must have really startled him because:

1. he jumped up and almost attacked me until he realized it was me.
2. he sprayed diarhrrea on the couch and wall behind him.

oh the joys...

gross and sad. don't you suppose there was something wrong with him to have diarrhea like that? I'd check it out. Scaring the poop out of him it should have been solid.

He has an issue you need to look at. Did you change his food recently? Did he get into something he shouldn't have? If the problem persists more than a day see your vet.

It was a couple drops, nothing major but yeah it wasn't solid. He ate some crabgrass and it went through him yesterday. Today everything is normal. If it was something persisting he would have already been to the vet.

Default Let sleeping dogs lie...

"Let sleeping dogs lie" to not talk about things which have caused problems in the past, or to not try to change a situation because you might cause problems...

Although it can mean many things, in this case it is literal. To stardle or awaken by surprise an animal or human can be dangerous. You found out your dog does not like be surprised. I have known people that have come up swinging when someone awakened them by "surprise."

Some awaken groggy and don't know what they are doing and to whom they are doing it too. Animals (and people) can come up fighting, not to mention making them mad especially if they are already ill tempered. Case in point, someone versed in the "Art of War, i.e. Navy SEAL, Army Ranger or say a Martial Artist." It would be wise to awaken them by talking first before you ever get close enough to touch them.

With an animal, that fight or flight instinct is just that, instinct. I would suggest awakening the subject before touching. If your dog enjoys (or tolerates) hugs, by all means go for it BUT ONLY if he's awake!!!

...IMHO...

I just went out to prepare the grill for brats. When I went inside to get the food, I had the grill surface removed and propped up against the house while the briquettes heated up. My fat little shameless ***** gnawed the old char off the grill. Seriously... 100% carbon. She has black all over her mush...

It sounds more like an involuntary release of the anal glands...not real diarrhea. When my Frenchie was just three months old or so, he walked into the kitchen and didn't recognize my husband...he was wearing a ball cap and jogging clothes and he'd never seen him in that attire before. He squealed/shrieked and his glands released just as you described.

As the previous posters said, it's always best to find a way to let a sleeping dog know you're near and wanting to touch them.
BTW, anal gland stuff is always pretty stinky...much more than regular poop. LOL
