Default Sunshine

So today I took Jr, Sunshine and Buddy Bear to a family members house (putting concrete in the backyard)
They were very worked up (not unusual for being their)
I gave Jr his food in his kennel but he refused to eat I put Sunshine in the same kennel (they share when need be) and she starts eating his food. So I then put another bowl of food thinking Jr would want to eat since she's eating. He refuses. I try to take the bowl that Sunshine is eating out of because it's too much for her since it was Jr's serving. She then bites my finger.
The fact that she did that I'm just so mad at her. Because I've done it many times before and she will stop eating and backup. But this one time she bite my finger.
Do you think from now on she will be "food aggressive" ? I really need to start taking precautions
Lately I've been feeling like a bad owner.

Hugs! We are all doing our best! It sounds like they are pretty stressed to be out of their routines, and Sunshine snapping at you is probably part of that. For now, just move more slowly and watch for her to tense as you reach toward her food. If she tenses, see if you can call her out of the crate, offer a toy or treat away from the food, then pick up the food. I hope the construction is done soon so you can all get back to normal routines!

Thanks!
She also got into a fight with Jr later that day. I think it was a just too much for her to handle yesterday. Because she also met my grandparents dog. He was smelling her but I held her the entire time and I could tell she didn't want him near her. I will she how she reacts when I give her food.
Now things are much more normal now. Maybe about a month until more major construction happens.
Dog's are enjoying being outside right now since they were in their crates all day yesterday
