Flirt, 8, and Winnie, 15, are both rescue dogs. Flirt lost an eye when she'd been rushing to get into a room with a litter of puppies, and the door shut before she could pass through it, the trauma of which caused her eye to fall out. Winnie lost her eye from an infection.

Since their fateful meeting, the spaniels, who live 10 minutes away from each other, have appeared in a Christmas parade together. They also belong to a Charleston social club for their breed.
