Orson won't eat kibble today!

Yesterday (Christmas) we had a houseful of guests for Christmas dinner. Orson of course was present, so most of the guests gave him turkey for various tricks/commands, or just because. "It's Christmas" I thought, and he deserves a treat too and it's good food not junk.
Well this morning he turned his nose up at his kibble (chicken soup).
He is hungry and searching hi and low for food, but he won't eat his breakfast, which he normally finishes within 15-20 minutes and then goes out for # 2 potty. This is going to mess up his schedule that I worked hard to accomplish!
Should I wait him out?
He is pretty stubborn when his mind is made up and I don't want to think he is going hungry.

I agree, stick it out. I made the mistake with my boxer of giving in, and she is the biggest PITA.
Good for you. He will eat when he gets hungry. (I have to remind myself of this all the time) Also, Rommel went through a stage from about 8 or 9 months until about a month ago where he was just not eating. I mean......he ate. But not near as much as I thought he should. He just wasnt really that interested in food...I dont know if it was age or what, but he is back to eating good now. I have heard some males go though that, maybe someone else will know for sure. I guess it just varies from dog to dog. you feed alot of treats?
