Q: Food Quantity Day vs. Evening
I want to feed my dog ¾ cup of food a day. One feeding will be ¼ cup and the other will be ½ cup. Is there a preference as to which meal should be bigger morning or evening?

This does sound like a small amount of food. unless you have a really great feed, even then. I feed my little 2.5lb yorkie 1/4 cup a day.
If you want to make one bigger look at what the dog likes.
With me my little guy gets Trippet twice a day, and kibble all day (he's only a puppy). I give less trippet at night, but he eats more kibble at night.
Also consider when you play with him or exercise him. I made the mistake of playing with Harley right after he ate in the first week he was home.... wont do that again. I changed his food schedule so that I made sure he digested everything before I play.
