Navigating the wheat free, gluten free diet

Celiac.com posted a story over the weekend about Elias, a service dog that can sniff out the tiniest amount of gluten.

If Elias, who “spent weeks in Slovenia undergoing intense gluten-detection training,” catches a whiff of the stuff he tries to grab it away from his owner, a first-year Vet Med student at the University of Missouri.

Adorable! I wish I could teach my cats to do this.  Daisy,  I think, could figure it out.  This one, on the other hand:

You get the idea.

Still, gluten-sniffing dogs can cost up to $10,000 so I think I’m better off trying to train the cats than holding out for one.  My birthday is coming up though. Ha!
