Q. My 15 week, 5lb Cavachon chewed on my wife's recliner underside. She had black stuff on her face, and vomited. She seems fine. What should we do?

A. She might have ingested a little piece and the color must have gone off fro the recliner. If she didn't ingest a large piece she is unlikely to suffer from much more symptoms (she might throw up 1-2 more times) but if she ate a bigger piece it could be stuck in the stomach and will likely to continue irritating her.

Monitor her appetite and the vomiting, if she continues showing symptoms by tomorrow - bring her to the vet.
