Hi

Is she fine otherwise? Is she still drinking & eating, energetic?

Have you changed her food recently? This can bring on a case of the runs. Nerves can too. Try not feeding her for a day. Then feed her boiled rice with boiled minced beef for a few days. This should help.

However if she has had "extreme" diarrhea (water & not soft stools) for a few days I would take her to the vet. She may already be dehydrated.

Good luck

My mom has a dog named Kemo!!! (spelled Kimo)

If the symptoms persist for more than two days or if they get worse, take her to the vet to rule out any illness.
It could very well be separation anxiety especially if she is always with you. Unfortunately, dealing with separation anxiety takes time and can be difficult. I will go into detail about dealing with separation anxiety if you like, once the vet has ruled out illness. Your vet will also tell you how to deal with separation anxiety.

Is there a possibilty that she could have eaten something she wasn't supposed to eat while she was alone??

How many hours is she left alone all at once?

I would bet that she is upset and that is why she has the runs. I would definitly see your vet to rule out any thing such as a parasite or illness. Give her some pumpkin not pie filling just plain pureed pumpkin it is great for binding them up. Keep us posted on what your vet says.
