My heart can't take it...

I am posting so late because earlier I was worried about my dear sweet Sophie who had some BLOOD in her um, stool. I almost had a heart attack with worry...but it turns out, she is pretty much ok. She has IBS, which the VET says stands for Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

I think it means, I belong (to) Stains. She can have that FOREVER as far as I am concerned.

I think I also suffer from another form of IBS...

does he ever stop moving?

Hi, Joey!
Those IBS sound scary!
Glad Sophie is doing well.
The IBS you have at home... hmmmm... I guess that is more difficult to cure!
Kisses and hugs

I think I might have that same kind of IBS you have.. BOL..

As for the Brazil Nuts.. they are unfortunately carriers of some fungus and if the party of nuts test positive for the fungus upon arrival in Norway the company will have to pay for the return of the nuts. And so nobody want to take the risk, unfortunately for Mom... She did bring some back from Austria this spring, though. BOL! But they certainly didn't last until Christmas.

Hmmm, I think both forms of IBS may be permanent (although the second form is untreatable- keep an eye on that brother of yours!)

Your pal,

Ya know, Sophie can take pills for her IBS. You have to get your mom to give the Doof (aka T.Torkelson) some pills to control yours. Valium?

Yuh, brothers sure are a pain in the nether-regions.

Tell your uncle I weigh 230 pounds (I used to weigh more, but I've been on a DIET). That's like totally way more than 40.

Yuh, momma put your photo where she can see it from her comfy chair because just looking at you two makes her smile.

Hi Joey! Tell Sophie to try some I/D food. It's 'spensive, but it helps!

Yeah, IBS sucks but it can be managed very well with a proper raw diet... Not always, but very often.

You also have IBS with I belong to Sofie...i hope sophie is feeling okay...and sorry you have an irritable brother....but..he must be keeping you young and handsome joe...

Blogger Stanley said...

Aw, Joey!

I was going to guess which IBS you were suffering from. It wasn't too hard, and I was right.

Glad that Sophie is okay, but I hope she soon only uses the term IBS for the I Belong (to) Stains meaning and not for her bowel situation.

Why is her bowel irritated anyway? Has Tanner been hanging out with her too?

Goob love,

Hi Joe
Good news about Sophie. I like the romantic IBS. I think I have the brother one too. How can I cure it?

Hey Joey!

I think you may need to send Tanner Torkelsen to Canada to switch places with Sophie...that way Sophie can come stay with you, you can take care of her, & then Tanner can have all the IBS he wants in a brother free household.....

Love & Licks,

We're glad they figured out what was happening with Sophie. Hopefully, she can feel better now that they know what it is.

That look on your face is priceless, Joe!
