Default Lucy down to 2 meals a day

She doesn't like eating her morning biscuits. I can get to to eat them if she has had some dry worms from the sidewalk near our house. They are about gone though.
It's as though we need to 'prime' the pump' to get her to eat.
My husband said they only sell live worms so we would have to dry them ourselves.
I will do this if I can just keep her eating.
We take her to the vets at the end of the month for her anal glands.
She still likes going out on her walks.

techie, maybe she's just not hungry? I know right now it's really hot where I live, and Harley and Scooter are not eating much at all. Both usually love their food, but they have been turning away from both meals, and eating when they feel like. Casey, on the other hand, is having no problems.

Well it was cloudy and a bit cooler today. We took a bit longer walk and Lucy ate her morning biscuits! If it is cool again tomorrow we can take an even longer walk!

Maybe it's just the heat, techie. Hope tomorrow morning to cooler, so she can have a longer walk. I like summer, but this one has been so hot!
