Boy, I really DO think Pixel and Sophie are sisters separated at birth! Pixel has gone from eating with gusto, to totally refusing breakfast, and occasionally dinner. (sometimes both meals on the same day) I believe in NOT giving in to "picky eaters", child or puppy, so I've been offering her breakfast, then picking it up if she doesn't eat it. The problem is, if she doesn't eat ANYTHING, she vomits bile all morning... which makes her want to eat even less. So I've tried coaxing her by putting various toppings on her food (freeze dried chicken, or freeze dried raw, or fresh cooked egg...) to no avail. I end up dumping it out. The ONLY way I can get any food into her in the morning, so that she isn't puking all over the house, is to do some training, and give her good quality food, like Fresh Pet, as training treats. She will eat training treats, even when she won't touch food in her bowl. I'm HOPING this is a phase, and will pass quickly!!!
