Default Is it normal for a poodle to suddenly drool excessively from being scared?

Is it normal for a poodle to suddenly drool excessively from being scared?

Lou drooled excessively when she watched us use a lawnmower for the 1st time.... normal? (stringy slobber on both sides about 2 inches long)

Husband and I were both outside and she was watching from the glass backdoor.
She had never seen us use a lawnmower before because we lived in an apartment and she is only 11 months old, so basically there are always new things...

We let her go outside sniff the fresh cut grass and the sniff the lawnmower then we all came back in the house after we were done and I gave her a small training treat, she took it, and then I gave her a brand new bully stick and she is all happy chewing on it laying on her bed.

I think... well... this could have been the thoughts going through her little head:

"What is the noisy foreing big object near mom and dad? It's following them! Is it hurting them? I can't hear anything they say but this loud noise, are they ok?"

LOL ... Hopefully that's all it was, I'm keeping both eyes on her now to see if anything happens...

Have you guys been through anything similar?

Misha tends to get car sick. She doesn't actually vomit, but drools excessively and sometimes will vomit much later. I always figured she was nauseated, but maybe it is more of an anxiety thing???

One of my Salukis used to drool in the car too. He was terrified of car rides.

Mmmmm :-( Lou is still drooling... I called the Vet, he said it could be a few things. One of them being that she may be cramping because she may be getting her first period. Or it could be upset stomach... Her activity level is normal, she is playing, eating, drinking water, and smiling.. He said if any of that changes to bring her in.... I'm a worried momma...

I'm going to search for a thread about heat/ 1st heat.

Ps. she drools every time she is in the car on the way to somewhere, on the way back she doesnt drool...LOL

My spoo is a male so the 1st period idea is out...lol. He drools ALLOT when he is nervous. When he is nervous or excited, and if he reacts by panting, then there is LOTS of drool.

Sushi drools when really hungry and I cook diner or when he knows he is getting raw food or raw bone. I was so suprise the first time I saw him drool, I never thought a poodle could drool, they are so aristocratic!

Indy drools when I am making something she really, really loves....her favorite foods in the whole world are chicken and dumplings, and home-made buns. I too was really shocked when I first saw her drooling, when she was about 4 months old. I thought, oh no! She's in terrible pain or has some horrible puppy virus! But nope, just hungry. Maddy hardly ever drools, but once she did too when I was making cheese biscuits

Portia drools in the car and is often sick if we drive too far (longer than 10 minutes)... :/ I'm dreading our first thunder storm because I have no idea what to expect... None of my other dogs get car sick, care about storms or lawnmower... I hope she is as relaxed...
