All about Chili "Pepper" and Echo
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.

Pepper is a very loyal, energetic dog. She loves cuddling and being a suck, but also has a major attitude if anyone comes near the house or yard. She loves sleeping in bed with me and often steals the pillow. biggest like is probably ice cream!
Echo is a very curious 10 month old puppy. She is very gentle but also very playful. She loves getting into things and then sucking up to the owners so she doesnt get into trouble. She can often be found carrying around a old pair of socks that she loves to chew on.
Both dogs are very playful and love to get outside for walks or chase each other around the yard
