We all wondered if the dogs would see Lily as their sister. As you can see in these pictures, the younger dog, Wrigley, took on the role of the protecting big brother. There were few pictures taken of Lily in her first few months at home that big brother Wrigley cannot be seen watching out for his little sister.
Sometimes he gets close up as if to inspect the quality of his mother's care for the little one.
And, sometimes he just stands by to ensure that everyone knows he's there for any possible need for his supervision.
There are times Wrigley can hardly contain his joy for this little sister. You have to wish all siblings were as content to be near their little sister as Wrigley is to be with Lily.
When Wrigley's favorite uncle Mike came to see the new baby, Wrigley faced a considerable problem. He trusted Uncle Mike, but found peace only by putting himself as close to Lily as he could get. The sad thing was, keeping a watchful eye on Lily often meant Wrigley did not get the cuddles from Mike he had so many times before, but Wrigley was willing to sacrifice for Lily's safety. No big brother ever gave up so much for someone so little.
Now that Lily is getting bigger, Wrigley must be facing a crisis. It may seem to him that she no longer needs his constant care. He must've asked himself,
"What will I be if I'm not her protector?"
It looks like he's come to a decision. If Lily no longer needs him as a big brother to spy on her and make sure she's ok...then why not be her twin?
