Harley, are you still in Westchester, NY? If you google you may be able to find an emergency vet that you wouldn't otherwise know about.
Looking through my Home Veternairy Handbook it sounds like it could be an "Anal Sac Infection" or "Anal Sac Abcess". You might google those. I'm certainly not an expert, though. It might be worth even calling the emergency vet that's 100 miles away. Does your regular vet's phone line have a referral for an emergency vet? Mine does.
Hope she's okay and feeling better soon!
At the very least I would start adding a small amount of 100% pure pumpkin to her food (fibre helps with constipation and expressing anal glands naturally during pooping). About a tablespoon per day should do it for a dog her size.
