My Dog Vs. The Gluten Free Pretzel...

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:

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:

:lol::lol::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

    • Sorry to hear about the loss, bread is a pain for some, Canyon house makes one many swear by...I have 2 issues with it so I can not even try it. I been using Julian Bakery Bread for awhile, the seed one was wonderful even toast like gluten bread, while the coconut one made the most amazing french toast, and the almond one was great toasted with mashed avocado. I recent perfected a sandwich bread for my bakery, so will be making my own grain free, starch free, 1 net carb bread loafs for myself.
      NOW a bit more on this topic, I am currently converting it to a sugar free German chocolate cake loaf for testing this weekend (these are going to be bakery item only for my store)
    • Hi everyone! I am a 23 yo female and was diagnosed Celiac in January 2016 and have been gluten free since then. My IgA levels are down to 4 and my Celiac is very under control. However, I recently have been dealing with a lot of unexplainable pain and discomfort that no one can seem to explain to me and wanted to see if anyone has experienced anything similar. For about a year, I have been occasionally getting severe abdominal pain that seems to be concentrated in my rectum. It starts by feeling overall icky, crampy and sort of like I have "twinges" in my rectum. It feels like maybe I need to have a bowel movement but I dont, and if I do it doesn't help the pain. So I feel bad, and then all of a sudden I feel like I am being stabbed in my rectum. The stabbing comes and goes but causes me to like roll around on the floor it is so painful. This sometimes only happens once and is over in 20 seconds, but generally it is an all day thing and lasts like 8-10 hours. These generally have been coming 2-3 times per month one day apart. They seem to come about every four weeks (not during my period or ovulation though) and naproxen and heat helps some, so I thought it was maybe OB/GYN related (they also started shortly after I switched for BC pill to an IUD) but I have seen two OB/GYNs and both have no idea and think it is gastrointestinal, maybe gas pain of some sort that is possibly triggered by hormones related to my cycle. However my gastroenterologist is also stumped and thinks its related to my uterus cause it seems to be somewhat cyclical. Anyway they're horrible and I can't figure out what they are, they don't seem to be related to what I eat (though I should probably start tracking) or a particular time of day. Sometimes they seem to come while I am exercising, but sometimes they wake me up in the middle of the night. I should also add that I have no GI symptoms involved with these painful episodes, my bowel movements seem completely normal, no gas or anything either. Also, the last two days, I have woken up in the middle of the night with the feeling of being bloated and crampy. Not painful per say but extremely unpleasant. Again, I'm not on my period so idk what is causing this, especially cause both times it woke me up and I am a deep sleeper. Now, for the last 30 minutes I have been having non-painful muscle spasms in my left lower abdomen. It feels like a flutter, if I put my fingers against the spasm I can feel it distinctly. Again it doesn't hurt, but feels weird and I've never had a muscle spasm there before. If anyone has ever had any of these symptoms before or has any idea what me going on I'd be very grateful! Is it possible its related to glutening? Since I caught my Celiac really early I don't really know what my symptoms of being glutened are, the few times I know I have been I don't get diarrhea but instead extreme bloating, acid reflux, and overall feeling really crappy and anxious. I have a whole host of health issues these days that have been causing me a lot of stress (I'm in medical school and don't have time for these debilitating pains!) and it would be awesome to have some answers.   Thank you all, K
    • Thank you!   I see a Dietician early next month and figured I will need to be more strict early on.    There is so much to learn.  I am grateful for the apps available that allow me to scan UPC's to find out what is and is not gluten-free, but will be confirming by reading labels  too.   I cleared out quite a bit of space in my cupboard today.  It is only me in the house since I lost my husband earlier this year so it will be easier to control what is in the house.    He loved bread as much as me so it would have been much harder with the 2 of us here
    • Welcome to the board. Many of us keep safe gluten free snacks on hand for times when we are away from home.  In addition to what Karen mentioned fruits, nuts, hard boiled eggs etc. If it is a long trip a cooler can keep stuff fresh for you and they make ones that you can plug into your car. How were you diagnosed? Many folks carry the genes but don't develop celiac. You should have had a celiac panel blood test and an endoscopy. If you are new to the lifestyle then do check out the Newbie 101 threead at the top of the Coping section. it has a lot of info to keep you safe.
    • If you are super sensitive (or have become super sensitive) there is an oats purity protocol used by just a few companies. The fields do not grow gluten containing grains for 4-5 years before the oats are planted, the fields are walked several times a season for any plants not belonging to be pulled by hand, and all the equipment and facilities used to harvest are dedicated equipment. It's a bit pricey, but it produces the only oats that I don't react to (although I have not tried all certified gluten free oats).  There are a couple variations of magnesium. Some cause loose stools so check the source of magnesium (and make sure it's gluten-free). Calm I've used with no problem. If you are stressed, you will burn through magnesium faster.  Roommates create some complications. I had a shared kitchen for a vacation this past year, and I was constantly cleaning. I'm so used to my gluten-free kitchen I became very aware of sinks being used to pour pasta water in, bread crumbs left from a cut sandwich, and how much gluten a simple sponge can be exposed to. I kept my sponge to clean my area in a ziplock bag next to the sink. And if I was cleaning fruit or veggies, I filled a large bowl with water to use so I wouldn't have to always be cleaning the sink. If you have wooden utensils, make sure they aren't be accidentally used. A friend was getting cross-contaminated from shared condiments.  My celiac reactions for cross contamination are not gastro but neurological so I can't offer much with that. A proper glutening is the only thing that gives me gastro symptoms, and it is the most painful experience! In either case, I drink lots of water. I will drink a gallon on those days. Throw some Calm in there, but force fluids. I also use Ultima Replinisher (which I typically use after exercise) if I'm forcing fluids, and I drink mugs of warm broth if my gut is really not doing well.  Hang in there, C. Hope you feel better soon.
