I am trying to cut down on my mile time. Right now I can run a mile in about 9 minutes, but I always get this sharp, shooting pain in my abdomen and I don't know what to do about it.
Also, my dog keeps s&*%ing in the house. Do you think that has something to do with my mile time?

We can address the first portion of the question. My answer is simple, but likely disappointing. I am no doctor, so for me to give any medical advice over the internet could be legally considered malpractice. However, in my personal opinion alone, perhaps you should take a break on running. You can do other cardio activities in the meantime.
Now for the second portion of the question. Your dog has no idea of the concept of a mile or of time. You need to take your dog out man.
