Going to bathroom after eating

Question:

We got a 4-1/2 year old female Jack Russell about 3 months ago. A real cutie. We were told that after each meal we should immediately take her out so she could go to the bathroom. We take her out and she may urinate, but there is no stool elimination. Sometimes she does not eliminate until 2 in the morning and does nothing during the day, and then sometimes she eliminates two or three times in one day. We only feed her twice a day and take away her bowl away around 6:30 in the evening. Is this common or should we be doing something different. It concerns me that she does not go sometimes for a whole day.
