Eating and/or drinking and then playing and running around, can actually kill a dog. Especially for dogs that have deeper chests. They are supposed to wait 30 minutes after eating or drinking very much before they get exercise.
My sister's dog died last summer. She came home and he was in clear distress. Drooling and panting heavily. It was mid morning and she was only away for just over an hour. She had let him out right before she left and he was fine. He died before she could get him to the vet. Literally just minutes. She was told it was from bloat and that he probably drank the water outside and tha\en was running around and that combined with the heat was too much. He was only 5 years old.
Bloat: "Called "the mother of all emergencies," untreated gastric dilatation and volvulus (GDV) can be fatal to a dog within hours. Bloat happens when gas or food stretch a dog's stomach. GDV happens when the distended stomach rotates, trapping the gas inside, and blocking off the stomach's blood supply."
Throwing up, or spitting up during exercise isn't normal or safe, and if it reaches that point let the dog cool down and rest.
I know there is also a genetic condition that some dogs have, and I forget the name, but they are more sensitive to exercise and it can actually cause death.
The best thing to do would be to check with your vet. But, clearly spitting up, excessive drooling, and other signs of fatigue should be a concern and it would be best to play it safe and let your dog rest.
