madison is about 8 mo. until now we've been feeding her 3 times a day- morning noon and nite. recently she's not been eating as much. sometimes she won't eat breakfast, but she'll eat lunch and supper. sometimes she'll only eat supper. sometimes she'll eat supper and then beg for food about 9 (and actually eat it). i do know she has separation anxiety so is she just doing this because my mom's gone to work? i know you're typically supposed to cut down on the amount of food and/or number of feedings, could it be that she's just doing it on her own? is a dog eating their two meals in the evening and late nite normal?

Some people are like that too. Some people are more evening and night eaters, it could be a habit that she's developed. If she's eating well and acting normal otherwise, its probably just how she is. If she isn't eating much or acting lethargic, those are non specific signs of illness and she would need to see her vet.
