Pretzels for ME??? (NOPE!!!!)

Yesterday, mom was making pretzel crusted chicken for Holden for dinner (yum!) and went to grab the pretzels from the pantry. She was almost out and I heard this weird noise followed by something that sounded like "@#$%!%&*!!!!!" I ran in to investigate.........
PRETZELS allllll over the floor! It's like a big floor picnic!!!!!! WHOOHOOO!

I was all set to help out before the "five second rule" kicked in....BUT....Mom (a.k.a. "Food Nazi") told me to "LEAVE IT!" (followed by more ""@#$%!%&*!" talk).

I had to just STAND there and watch her sweep up all those yummy pretzels!
Can you BELIEVE this? TORTURE!

Ok, SURELY she's just sweeping them up together into a big pile to make them easier for me to eat...right?

She had Holden hold the dust pan and they put them INTO THE GARBAGE!!!!
I had to look away...I couldn't bear to watch this ridiculous tragedy any more!

Don't they know that there are (likely) STARVING Pugs in China right now?
These pretzels would have made a very nice mid-afternoon snack for me, but was all yelly about them being covered in PUG HELLOOOOO?

Instead...she gave me one of THESE for being a "good boy" while she was cleaning up the pile.
Thanks a heap, mom. I'll close my eyes and pretend like it's a pile of free pretzels!

First of all, that is a travesty and you should have been on the clean-up crew.

Secondly... pretzel-crusted chicken?!! Whatttt!? Please share.

You gots some kind of restraint, S-Dog! I would haves been all over those pretzels no matter what the Mom said!

Rosie said...

pssst S-dog it is me Rosie - those pretzels are in the garbage can right (wink wink) one little push and out they roll......

Melissa and Emmitt said...

LOL Salinger!
poor baby. emmitt feels your pain. he just read your post and i think he is actually weeping.

tell your mom that pug hair adds...flavor and fiber!

hey... we should sell it as a new healthy seasoning!

we will make a million dollars!

Thanks for the tip, Rosie...but Thursday is the day the big robot on wheels rolls through the 'hood and eats all of the garbage. Sad.

Ok...pretzel crusted chicken...
Take chicken breasts (or buy the tenders already cut up) and dunk in beaten egg, then roll in smushed up pretzels. Spray the top with cooking spray (Pam or generic...makes them brown up nicely). Toss on a baking sheet into a 350ish oven for about 20-30 minutes or so.

ESPECIALLY good if you dunk into honey mustard!

What's the big deal? Pretzels are low in fat so they don't count if you eat them. Does your momma know that?

Kristi said...

Holy crap- your pantry is GINORMOUS!!!

Becky said...

Your mom and I speak the same language on occasion I see. That does seem a waste but who wants to eat dog hair even if it's your own! Milkbone is much better for you.

The Devil Dog said...

Moms are just no fun, huh, Salinger? Thanks for calling me an evil genius, I really appreciated it.

Aniemother said...

You didn't get a single one???


Nevis said...


Starving pugs in China? Heck, I can think of a few starving ones right here in the USA! A few in Indy! AND in Alabama...hmm...

Pearl and Daisy said...


You was robbed!!!!

Our mom does the floor picnic all the time too. Sometimes she let's us partake - if it's vegies and she wants help cleaning up - but sometimes it's the really good stuff (like meat or chocolate) and then she does what your mom does and cleans it up!!!

Pug love from,

Hi there, how lovely to meet you - thank you for coming to visit us!
You look just like Rosie!!!!
How dreadful that your mum cleaned up all those goodies - what is wrong with these humans?
We did like your joke about the cone!

Dutch the Pug said...

Yes I second, petzel crusted chicken? Sounds good! You have much more self restraint then I do...mommie could not have stopped me from throwing myself on the pretzels and eating as many as I could before she could clean them up!

Benson and Lily said...

Come on over there when mom is not looking. At least lick them and run
