I've Been Food Tagged?

Our pals Agatha and Archie food tagged me today. Now, before you get upset about the mess, let me assure you that this is just another in our ongoing series of "getting to know you" blog spots. And, since food is "one of my favorite things" this is an easy one for me. (I'll bet you already know a couple of them!)

Number 5! PRETZELS You know, these are almost as good as dog bones! And my very favoritest pretzel is the Gus Pretzel from St. Loulis...that we got at the Soulard Market that Saturday. But me and dad ate them too fast for muzzer to take a picture. So these are some pretzels I got from Ivy for Valentines Day!

Number 4! GUMBO! This is better than dog food any day! And so is most of the food that muzzer cooks! But this is yummiest because of the vegamables and shrimpamables and crabbabbles in it! And it smells so good when it cooks. I even ate my rice that night! mmmm yummy in the Tummy!

Number 3! KONGS! The purists among us would insist that Kongs are not strictly foodables. However, in our house, they are wonderful surprises and come stuffed with the most marvelous foodables and topped with PEANUT BUTTER! And they make me happy even if muzzer has left for a while. And they last a pretty long time, particularly if she freezes them.


Oh Steak n Shake I love your burgers, made of beef upon the bun. Oh Steak n Shake, I love your french fries, golden crisp and newly done. Away, I'm far away, from the wide Missouri.

And of course,

Number 1!!!!!!!!

C'mon guys, you could have guessed!

If you want to play this tag game, you are it.

Muzzer says she is boring, her list is almost the same as A&A's mom, except she would put bread first, and then olives, and after that, wally melon and who cares!

I put it down to the heat. She just doesn't want to cook

PS: Today we got an e-mail from Mackie, Finnegan and Ollie and their mom, Melissa. The folks active in rescue in Texas have rescued some more fox terriers from a puppy mill place and they could use some help with funds or willing hands. If you want more details, leave us a message here and we will put you in contact with the terrier rescue folk. They do good work all over the country. I came from the Washington DC group myself!

Ruby Bleu said...

You have such delicious selections there Gus...excuse me for a second...hold on...ok, better now. I actually had to wipe the droll off my face because everything looked so yummy!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Blue said...

Hi there

I just wish I was your side of the pond I'd just love to rescue a WFT!
Judy my one & only sister was one as I grew up, so I have a serious soft spot for your breed, as your pal the one & only Jackson knows!

Pats to you

wally said...

Oh, I do love to read and write about the foodables. But where is AspareGUS on your list?


Gus said...

Wally: AsparaGUS is still A favorite, but didn't make the top five!

Maggie said...

That gumbo is calling to me! I want to run right over and lap it all up! You have great food choices Gussie!

Love ya lots,

William Tell said...

Good choices, though I've never had gumbo myself, it looks delicious!

Butchy & Snickers said...

Hey Gussie,
Mmmmmmm, we're with Ruby, we're drooling too. Even Mama is drooling with that Gumbo.
We hope the little wires get nice new homes soon. Mama would have more of us, but she says 2 are more than enough for her to handle. Hmmmm, wonder why she says that? Is it because we both have to sit in her lap at the same time while in the car & crush her???? hehehehe!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
Butchy & Snickers
PS Still trying to stay safe from the nasty storms!

Agatha and Archie said...

Wow Gumbo...See we knew your list would be great!!1 Love A+A

Scruffy & Lacie said...

Gus, can we come to your house for gumbo?? It looks wonderful. The pretzels looked to be an excellent choice, also. We love the way you call your mom, Muzzer. We hope the WFTs all find new homes. Our mom has to sit on her hands to keep from bringing more pups into our home. She said Lacie and I keep her busy enough, but I know she wants more dogs. Try to stay cool, dude. It sounds like its smokin' hot out there!!!

Way cool barks, Scruffy

Asta said...

this food tag is driving me nuts! i'm about to eat my mouse and keyboard now...

why are there so many puppy mills still around. it's very sad. we would love to take in one or two puppies, but i don't suppose that's possible?


Jackson said...

Hey pal, I'm gonna have to have words with J1. How come you get sooooo much peanut butter in your kong? I get such a stingy amount! All your food choices look extremely acceptable. J x

deuce said...

Hi, from Deuce from Tucson! I get peanut butter Kongs, too. But Mom keeps all the Gumbo for herself, and wants to come and eat yours now, too! It does look yummy.
We were just sniffin' around dog blogs today, and thought we'd stop in and sit/stay a bit.
You lucky dog...steak and shake...I'm jealous!
