Meet Frannie, an adorable pup who took in her new baby sister Trixie right under her paw (wing).
When Frannie first met her baby sister Trixie, she immediately took her under her paw — literally.
“Frannie was so happy to have a sister when Trixie came home that she initiated the first snuggles,” Jennifer Lewis, the dogs’ mom, told The Dodo. “Frannie is only six months older than Trixie but Trixie always sees herself as the little sister.”
The pair loved napping together from the off and enjoy keeping each other warm.
Three years on, and the pair still enjoy snuggling together every single day, although now, Trixxie has grown up to be a little bigger than her sister.
“Trixie still climbs on top for naps as you can see,” Lewis said. “Frannie does love to cuddle with her so she will let her sleep on top for a while.”
“I think Frannie just likes the contact and doesn’t notice how big she is,” she added.
The duo sleep in bed every night, but still cant resist a daytime nap and snuggle during the day on the couch.
… and on the chair…
… and on the footstool
The pair are very close and spend all their time together. Their personalities though couldn’t be more different:
“Frannie loves to jump up on people’s laps even if they weren’t expecting it. She also loves to play ball, she’s super smart and very agile. She is more of a worrier, though, and takes things more seriously. Trixie is a little party girl, fun-loving and just enjoys life.”
“They make our home feel full,” Lewis said. “Just snuggling with them on the couch is so relaxing, especially in these tough times.”
