      silverfz ~ That's a big drop in appetite. My Mom used to leave dry food out for the Basenjis because they'd self-regulate (they picked on the food all day and stayed slim). But that's Basenjis. And it was a year 'round thing...not a sudden drop. For a Lab, or any other normally ravenous breed, to do this, is strange. I agree with Elena...I'd check out the food (get a new bag of kibble, comparing batch numbers in the store) for starters.

      She does eat but drops as required to maintain her girly figure. She is around 78 lbs winter or summer.

      It is 14 degree so off we went to dog park for an hr. Alot of labs ans huskeys....

If my dog did that, I'd think that either something is wrong with that batch of kibble, or that she god bored with the same food over and over again. And I'd pay a visit to the vet, just in case. Better safe than sorry.
      So went to Wednesday to day care. So she was back to eating Wednesday night ro Thursday and then did her eat 2 cups or so Friday ,Saturday.

      We went to dog park and now she sucked the dinner down. She will again do the less eating on Tuesday but it will be above 30 we will be walking.

      I have taken her to the vet once before when she was younger and was told that is the way she is. I even posted a thread of moving her to once a day feeding last winter. When she was 8 weeks she ate two times a day and ignore her lunch . So even as a puppy she ate at 8 am and an 5 pm.
