Little Brothers Sometimes Offer No Sympathy

Frankie says he had a rough day yesterday, but a certain little brother seems to be offering no sympathy to his big brother.

What a day!

What a day!

Frankie said Monday was not his best day. First it was raining all day which means thunder might happen, so he was already on edge. And then he got to go for a Jeep ride, only to discover that it was a trip to the vet. A vaccine, a blood draw, and other indignities followed. And, to top it all off, the humans stopped for a quick bite to eat without bringing any food out as snacks!

Woe is me.

Woe is me.

When Frankie arrived back home and told his tale to his siblings, one little brother didn’t seem to be very sympathetic.

He got to go on a Jeep ride and his breath smells suspiciously of those special cookies from the vet.

Brothers. You do have to appreciate how they always have each other’s backs, right?

Complain all you want, Frankie, but Hu-Dad tried to brush me again today. Now THAT's traumatic.

    Mom’n Ebby say: Awww, poor Frankie. If you can’t get “sibling sympathy”, who are you supposed to go to? And Typhoon, be nice to your big brother — your day will soon come, and YOU’LL be the one looking for sympathy!

    Poor Frankie!

    I’m half surprised you don’t just have all 6 scheduled for appointments on the same day. Though, I’m not sure how long that’d take 😛

    Oh, Frankie! Those siblings can sometimes be fickle. I hope you have a better day today.
