My Dog Vs. The Gluten Free Pretzel...

14 posts in this topic

So yesterday I was eating Glutino's pretzels. Dipping them in Nutella, in fact. B) My dog was watching me as always, since you know she's totally starved and never gets a thing to eat. ;) So I gave her a pretzel. (these are the thin stick-like ones, not sure if there are other kinds). She took it in her mouth and took it away to her bed to eat.

Later I was walking through the living room and there on her bed was the pretzel, with all the salt licked off. So I put it in her bowl. Later at dinner time it was still there. I put her kibble in her bowl and since we were out of wet food (sigh) I took a bit of peanut butter and stirred it all around so that all the kibble pieces had a bit of pb on them. Including that pretzel.

She ate her dinner and after she was done....there was that darn pretzel on the floor, licked clean of peanut butter! :lol: Do you think she is trying to tell me her opinion of gluten free things? rofl... She's never been known to turn down any food, not even carrots and green beans, so this is pretty funny.

That pretzel is now sitting in her bowl again (I forgot to put it there for breakfast) waiting for dinner. I went to the store today so she now has wet food. We'll see if she can separate that pretzel out once again. :lol:

I know this is a fluff post and maybe belongs in "food" instead of here in "coping" -- but, I find the story to be funny and I could use a bit of humor lately, with all the end-of-school-year parties and barbeques and church potlucks and baby showers that have occurred recently -- their seemingly endless tables of food, most of which I can't eat. :(

:wub: :wub: my doggie :wub: :wub:

This post is totally worth the read lol :-D The dog and the pretzel!

It's hard to say this but even dogs don't like our food options now ;-(

I thought it was very cute anyway :-) Thanks for sharing it.

Have you tried explaining to your dog that going gluten-free will clear up her symptoms? Does your dog drool, chew your slippers, bark at the neighbor's cat? Could be a sign of doggy celiac. :lol:

And I bet there wasn't even a teeny bit of that pnut butter left on it.

This reminded me of a big yellow lab I had. He could gulp down a big bowl of stew and leave every pea in it licked clean in the bottom of his bowl. He wouldn't touch those peas but he would steal all the ripe tomatoes out of my garden when I wasn't looking.

I also reminds me of an Aunt I had whose kids always had to clean their plates. If they didn't they got whatever it was the next day for breakfast, and then for lunch and then for dinner.....

Thanks for the best laugh I have had in days.

Just shows us that the canine's taste buds are more evolved than ours. :lol:

I watched my friend's dog catapult a gluten-free biscuit so far across the back yard, I was thinking he could win a spitting contest.

It was like in a cartoon...I could almost see the PATOOIE!!!!! as it flew across the sky. :)

and PS...I think it works fine in the Coping section!

I had a mixed terrier that would carefully lick the dressing off of lettuce. My dog will eat gluten-free pretzels but he prefers the boys "real" ones.

My beautiful lab, Gracie always ate around zucchini in a bowl full of vegetable soup...why? She did not like zucchini, I guess.

I will never ever know how they can tell what's tasty and what isn't ...that silly dog once ate her way through a box of Snuggle fabric sheets. :blink:

I have an update in Dog vs. Pretzel. I mixed up her dinner in her bowl (dry kibble with a couple of tablespoons of wet food), then stuck the pretzel in it like a flag. I put it down in front of her, told her she could eat, then watched out of the corner of my eye. She picked out that pretzel and dropped it on the floor, then continued on with her dinner! :lol:

So I went over, picked up the pretzel, told her to move over, and slipped it underneath the food in her bowl. Then I let her finish eating. When she was all done the bowl was empty! woo-hoo! rofl. She ate it. Unless she's stashed it somewhere out of my sight. :P

    • Allergy or Preference? Waiter asks
      At my local Five Guys, I told the counter guy that I had to avoid gluten for medical reasons. I was ordering a burger with no bun and some fries. He yelled back "Allergy Alert!" and every line cook immediately changed gloves and cleaned their work space. Will I go back? You bet I will!
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      The office is located in another city than location I went to. There is no receptionist at the location closest to me meaning patients wait for the doctor to open her closed door to call their name for a consult. So, I would have to knock on her door which would really make her say that I'm sick since I keep writing letters AND showing up in person. The main office is too far for me to travel with construction going on for the remainder of the year. I suppose I could mail the letter instead. But the staff is very irresponsible so it might be thrown away. The doctor probably told them that nothing needed correction in my records so ignore further requests from me. The other staff member I dealt with seemed normal, but I complained to the doctor about the staff member I dealt with today when she failed to update my phone number that I gave to her a few times (and which she said she updated), which resulted in me showing up for an appointment (I traveled a distance) one of the testers thought she canceled by leaving voicemail for phone number I no longer had. What I mean is I told the doctor that the staff member said she updated my phone number when the doctor asked me why I was there when I showed up for that cancelled appointment. Unfortunately, this staff member answers the phone most of the time. I'm sure she did what she could to make me look bad to the doctor to make her look good because I complained about her. I feel like scheduling an appointment with a psychologist and tell her what ahppened with this name calling. I'm sure it's against the therapist code or I'd like a psychologist's feedback on this doctor's behavior. There are other patient complaints about her on the Internet how she laughs at patient's pain and suffering. I feel that's how she treated me as well. Update: The staff member called me back to tell me the doctor amended my report and she put it in the mail. I wonder if the doctor discussed what she said to me with another doctor who told her what she did was unacceptable in the medical field. I ma hoping my report is amended or not new negative comments are added by the doctor to say I keep writing her letters or something in that regard.

      The letter I am suggesting has nothing to do with the doctor.  I would type it and walk it to the desk when are in the building for your other appointment. 
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      Thanks. I'm not sure if the doctor will read another email I send and that's the way I'm told by staff to contact her. It will just confirm that I keep writing her letters although I only sent her one email about it! I already told the staff and her that I didn't want my medical records sent to any doctor's office, but I don't know if they will do it out of spite. It was scary talking to this doctor because she wouldn't listen or let me get a word in...I guess that's the reason why I feel the need to raise my voice at this office. When I requested a Lyme disease prescription from another doctor years ago before I knew I had celiac disease, this ignorant doctor told me not to come back to his office because there's no such thing as Lyme disease so only crazy people think they have it. I thought that was the worst experience I had with a doctor, but this experience was worse. I mean this neuropsychiatrist kept calling me a sick person over and over. It's so scary dealing with doctors like this. I really don't know how many other doctors may have wrote in my records that my symptoms are all in my head because celiac disease isn't real.   And my neurologist said this neuropsychiatrist was great. Maybe he says that about all the doctors he refers to patients to? I don't know if you call her personality psychopath since she appeared really nice during my consult, but she was thinking all this negative s*** in her mind at the time or different than she appeared to be.
    • Nature's Bounty Protein & Vitamin Shake Mix
      Sort of funny.  Says no wheat at the bottom but also says this " Other Ingredients: Proprietary Protein Blend (Soy Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Concentrate), Cocoa (processed with alkali), Inulin, Oat Fiber, Fructose, Natural Flavors, Maltodextrin, Soy Lecithin, Tricalcium Phosphate, Xanthan Gum. Contains milk and soy ingredients. Contains wheat ingredients.   I bet they do not use gluten free oats, so its a bit of a gamble.  Not one a Celiac should take as there is no such thing as "not severe Celiac".  Even if you don't feel the damage, consuming gluten will start damaging you.  Maybe its just catching up with you.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
