Sweet pup named Reese truly loves her cat big sister named Skittles. For the past five years Reese has been obsessed with Skittles and follows her every where she goes, even if that means going to the vet. The two are inseparable and enjoys playing together and being together each moment they can.
But occasionally, 15-year-old Skittles gets annoyed with her dog little sister, but the pair are still incredibly close. Jamie-Lee Ball, the pair’s mom added, “I think Reese likes Skittles more than Skittles likes Reese. They do get along well and have their adorable cuddling moments together, but they also act like sisters and play fight with each other often. Reese always acts like the younger sister and teases Skittles often to play together.”
Recently Skittles was getting ready to go to the vet. While Ball was getting Skittles ready she was in kind of a rush to be on time. Ball was on the phone and had her mom put Skittles in her carrier. Then they quickly headed out the door to make it to the vet on time. On their way to the vet, Skittles didn’t make a sound, which wasn’t an unusual thing. However when they finally arrived at the vet the notice that something wasn’t exactly how it should be. The carrier all of the sudden got a whole lot heavier.
“When we arrived at the vet, I grabbed the kennel out of the back seat and really struggled to lift it. I actually pulled my back a bit trying to lift it out and made a comment, ‘OMG! Did Skittles gain weight overnight?! Why is she so heavy?!’ but attributed the awkward/heavy carrier to why it was so difficult to carry. When we walked into the vet office, the vet tech said to me, ‘Oh! You decided to bring everyone with you today,’ and I thought she was referring to my mum, who decided to tag along.”
But once they entered the doctor’s room and placed the carrier on the examination table and opened it, all became much clearer. Inside the carrier was Skittles and surprisingly little Reese as well. Somehow this sweet pup managed to sneak into the carrier with her sister to show her support without anyone noticing. “We were in complete shock. We were all laughing at the thought of Reese and Skittles squished together for that whole car ride and how sweet Reese was that she wanted to tag along. The vet and vet techs all said that was a first and they were excited to tell their families that night of the cute story.”
Little Reese clearly understands the saying that no one gets left behind and didn’t want her big sister to have to travel alone. But little Reese was a bit more disappointed than she hoped after she realised where their adventure had brought them. “Reese was absolutely mortified that her fun adventure outside of the house was to the vet. She started shaking and trembling immediately, and in the video, you can see she's licking her lips a lot out of anxiety. She eventually felt OK with her decision when she realised the appointment was for Skittles and not her, and then she was walking around the vet office saying hi to everyone with no worries.”
However Skittles pretended to be annoyed with the fact that she had to share her carrier for the entire ride, but Ball could tell that deep down she was actually happy to have Reese alongside her. “I do honestly think that she did provide some level of comfort for her because she didn't cry once during the visit, and she normally would at a vet visit.”
