He resembled a barfing dog

The anguished look in Lord Emsworth's eyes became more anguished. It was as if the question had touched an exposed nerve. He gulped for a moment, reminding Lord Ickenham of a dog to which he was greatly attached which made a similar sound when about to give up its all after a too busy day among the fleshpots.
