Yes, there is dog dementia — but sudden stealing is not a normal symptom.  I would take her to a vet and have a full senior blood panel done to rule out other problems.  Be sure they check thyroid levels.  Dogs are natural scavengers and something has triggered this behavior, you need to find ways to keep her from being rewarded by this behavior (getting things to eat IS the reward).

sudden behavior problems should mean a trip to the vet to rule out anything medical first.  i’d definitely take her in and get some bloodwork done…if she’s suddenly very hungry, i’d be worried about thyroid problems.
