All about Bilbo
Any owner of a dog who has had “cherry eye” will tell you that it is not a pretty sight. Perhaps you have witnessed it yourself and have seen the large red mass bulging out of the inner corner of a dog’s eye, from which the name ‘cherry eye’ originated. While not the most visually appealing condition (for the owners or the afflicted dog), cherry eye is actually a fairly common and benign occurrence in many breeds of dogs.
Though it may appear somewhat like a tumour or even an awfully big bug bite, the ‘cherry’ on your dog’s eye is actually a prolapsed (or popped out) gland. Known by veterinarians as the nictitans gland, this gland is present in the third eyelid of dogs and aids in the production of tears. Unlike humans, many animals possess this third eyelid which closes horizontally across the eye to provide extra protection and moisture.

Bilbo thinks he is a cat. When we got him we had 3 cats. Now we only have one and he follows her every where and even stretches like her. He cries when she ignores him (which she does alot, being a senior cat).
Bilbo loves to go to the contry and to play in the water, as long as he touches the bottom. Mud is even better!
We got him from the SPCA as a puppy (about 5 months old) and we don't know if he has ever been around children (we don't have any and there aren't that many around our place), but he just loves them and he is just so patient with them, he even fetches, which he barely ever does with us.
