The past few days Floyd has been very stubborn at eating his meals. At first I thought he was getting bored with his food, since he would gobble down any treats he got. So I changed his food and he ate it at first, but is now turning his nose up at it again. I put his food in another bowl and moved it into the living room... that worked last night, but now he's not eating again.

Pretty much any other dog I wouldn't be so worried, but he tends to get sick if he doesn't eat. Anyone have an idea? Like I said, he'll still try to get our food and take any treats given to him... in fact, he's not acting any different at all except for not eating.

Edited to add: he will eventually eat... didn't want anyone to think he's starving! He just keeps waiting so long and ends up getting sick.

I'm beginning to think it's more around him not wanting us to leave in the morning. He never really took to his crate... once he's in there, he's fine; but getting him there is a whole other issue. We've tried making his crate fun with toys and things, but he really hates it. I'm thinking of trying to buy one of the airline-type ones (the one we have is a hand-me-down cage-type) to see if he likes that better.

Anyway, now that I've derailed my own thread :roll: ,in the evenings he's usually pretty good about eating. In the mornings he tends to sulk as he sees my fiance and I get ready for work. At any rate, we have a vet visit scheduled for Friday to rule out any medical issues.
