why is my boston terrier suddenly drooling?

My boston has suddenly started drooling every time I take her outside. I'm wondering what could be causing this and if it should be a concern?

My boston..used to drool and throw up all the time..I beleive it was because he ate so fast he
never chewed his food..no I feed him 5 time a day, but small amounts and he hasn't drooled or threw up in about a month.

My first thought is that it's a nervous reaction; some dogs drool when they go for a car ride because of a previous, unpleasant experience (nausea, usually), but anything could trigger it. Did anything unpleasant happen when you took him for a walk as a puppy? Otherwise, I really have no other suggestions. Bloodhounds drool all the time, because their jowls collect it and then it starts to spill out, but that doesn't seem to be your problem.
