My Spaniels are eating as well as ever - no expert but if he's not feeling like eating after a days work I (and being a Lab!!) then I would be paying the vet a visit. Could he be drinking foul water from wherever you are working him?

Doesn't sound right for a lab does it.

As above, different foods if that doesn't work then a trip to the vets.

That post made me smile. A few family members have lurchers/greyhounds from our nearby rescue center. They have odd habits too.

We've got a Beddy/Whippet. Shes totally mad, but in the same way our Lurcher/Beddy was years ago. Our lawn is now totally yellow, brittle and dead. She goes outside and roles around all over it then comes back in and spreads it all over the lounge. And what's left she enjoys having brushed out. She then runs straight back outside and roles all over the dead lawn again, then comes in. And the game starts again....

Apologies for poaching your thread jcbbracken.
