Ower Boxer is 12 years old. She use to woof her food down so fast. Now in the last month she is not eating like she use to. We get up feed her like we have always done and she will not eat. Some times it is 2 o'clock in the afternoon before she will touch it. But then at night during normal feeding time she wants to eat again. I do not know what is going on with her.

You may have gotten an answer to this from your vet. If not, you may want to have her vet checked for problems with her teeth or gastrointestinal problems.
   
It's possible your dog's digestive system has slowed down and he doesn't need as much food as before. Perhaps changing food (gradually) would help get her interested in the morning meal. If not, you might trying could feeding a smaller portion in the morning and giving the rest of it in the afternoon.

Got my brains in my feet tonight. What I meant to say was that you might try feeding her a small amount in the morning and the rest of it in the afternoon.
