Picky Puppies

Does anyone have a very picky Boston?

Lately, our guy hasn't been eating twice a day like he normally does.  He does not seem sick at all (i.e. he is not exhibiting lethargy or coughing or anything), he just won't eat.  He is happy to beg for people food and is happy to try and steal things that he shouldn't eat, so I can't imagine he's not hungry.  He's just picky I guess.  I'm just wondering if anyone else's Boston is like this or if we should maybe take him to the vet?  

We've also noticed that he is a very sensitive little guy.  Some dogs are totally resliant and can handle any change, small or large, but our little guy is totally routine.  If he eats more than an hour late, he gets sick (vomit, diharreah).  If any little thing about his food changes, he gets sick.  Sometimes he also just gets sick for two or three days for reasons we cannot determine (last time we took him to the vet and he just said it could be his food plus a change in weather blah blah blah). 

Right now he's not really eating his dinner.  Today he's been pouncing at it like it's scary or weird or something.  We put the food down at 5:00 and now he's standing there eating it piece by piece - it's 5:30.

Weird.
