Do you not normally go outside in the morning with your dog?
Yes, we go out right after he eats. I take him out for the last time between 12 & 1am before I go to sleep. Usually he is completely fine until the next morning after breakfast, but the last two days he has been needing to go out before and after breakfast. I found it odd, because he has not had to do this since he was very young. Once he was around 6 months he stopped going out before breakfast. I am getting concerned because he's not showing an interest in his water bowl, which I placed in his crate for him, and that's very unusual for him.
