Frannie had just lost her two dog sisters months before and she was missing their company. Luckily, the little puppy was happy to cheer her up. a dog lying on a bed © Jennifer Lewis “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.”

From the very beginning, the two dogs loved to nap together — keeping each other warm all day long. a large brown dog lying on a bed © Jennifer Lewis Nearly three years later, the two dogs still cuddle and spoon each other every day, even though Trixie has grown to be quite a bit 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. a dog lying on a sofa © Jennifer Lewis The two pups sleep in bed with their parents every night, but during the day they love to snuggle on the couch … a dog lying on a sofa © Jennifer Lewis … and on the chair… a dog sitting on the floor © Jennifer Lewis ... and on the footstool. a dog lying on a sofa © Jennifer Lewis While the two dogs are as close as can be, their personalities couldn’t be more different. “Frannie loves to jump up on people’s laps even if they weren’t expecting it," Lewis said. "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.” a dog lying on a sofa © Jennifer Lewis Frannie and Trixie make the world a better place for each other and for their adoring parents. Especially when they'll let their humans participate in their nonstop snuggle sessions.

“They make our home feel full,” Lewis said. “Just snuggling with them on the couch is so relaxing, especially in these tough times.”
