Meet the two dogs who found each other in a Michaels store and knew it was love at first sight.
Emily Stern was out shopping at Michaels in Charleston, South Carolina, with her Cavalier King Charles spaniel named Flirt, who only has one eye, when she ran into another dog who looked like a mirror image of Flirt.
“It was pretty much excitement and I was shocked,” the 19-year-old told TODAY.
Allie Smith Frenz, the owner of the look-alike pooch named Winnie, was just as shocked as well. Stern took some pictures of the encounter and posted them to Reddit, where it has been liked more than 37,000 times.
“I just wanted to show everybody. It’s one of those things when you meet a celebrity and you want to tell everybody about it,” Stern said.
Emily adopted Flirt about three years ago after the dog lost an eye following an accident where she was hit in the head by a door. “The trauma from hitting her head caused her eye to fall out,” Emily said. Winnie lost her eye from an infection. Frenz received the dog as a wedding present, she asked for a Cavalier King Charles spaniel, specifically, a rescue and Winnie was that rescue.
Since their fateful meeting 1 1/2 years ago, the spaniels, who live 10 minutes away from each other, have remained in touch. Flirt, 9, and Winnie, 15. What are the chances that this happened? Probably one in a million!
