It sounds like he misses his buddy. If there is nothing medically wrong with him I'd say just give him love and attention, mental stimulation and exercise, and wait it out with him. He'll eat when he gets hungry, he probably doesn't have much of an appetite right now because of how he's feeling.
*Not to sound rude, but if your posts had punctuation it would be easier to read and reply to

I would have the vet check him in case he has eaten something he shouldnt have, and its caused a blockage or something, it could be a simple upset tummy, or maybe there is a bitch in season nearby this can effect local dogs appitite.

Myself, I would be taking the dog to the Vet ASAP. When a dog is not acting his normal self, loss of appetite and lethargic...those are warning signs I would not ignore.

It could be something simple, or it could be major...we can't diagnose your dog on a forum. A Vet can look at your dog, run tests, palpalate the belly etc.

Good luck
