Seeing a loved one ill or in pain is never easy.
You would do anything to improve their situation, so when you are unable to, you feel powerless.
Therefore, just picture how this wonderful dog felt when his loving brother became ill with an infected ear, leaving the poor dog in excruciating pain.
Roman’s and Spanky’s pet mom took Roman to the vet when his ear first appeared infected, and the doctor determined that he had a hematoma. That is, a blood clot that is present outside of the blood arteries.
Roman’s ear needed surgery to get it back in top condition, but while he awaited the day of the procedure, his ear continued to deteriorate.
Spanky, who has always looked up to his brother, gradually became aware of the issue.
Roman’s ear condition deteriorated, and Spanky’s concern for his brother increased as a result. Their mother also observed a marked change in Spanky’s behavior.
Spanky softened up even more, becoming especially kind and patient with Roman.
He was obviously very worried about Roman’s health, and he wanted to be as close to his brother as he could be.
Spanky was really upset when he wasn’t permitted to join his sibling inside during a 20-minute return trip to the vet.
Spanky’s aunt, Jackie Rogers, told The Dodo that Spanky waited in the car sobbing, whimpering, and barking until Roman returned.
Roman needed a lot of rest to heal after his surgery, which was ultimately completed.
Spanky continued to be concerned about his sibling and behaved in a loving and gentle manner while keeping a close eye on Roman.
And one day, while checking on the puppies through a webcam the family has installed so that they can keep an eye on them when they’re at home alone, Rogers witnessed something incredible.
Roman had slouched down to slumber on the floor because he was still exhausted and recovering from his surgery.
But Spanky appeared worried. He didn’t believe that his brother was at ease while camped out on the floor, and he was determined to find some way to assist him.
Then, while Rogers marveled, Spanky approached the dog bed and began dragging it in the direction of his worn-out sibling.
