All about Winston Noble Beilschmidt
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.

Winston Noble was a family member full of grace and dignity, loving, kind and generous, a "Gentle Giant". He never hurt any of his brothers and sisters, be they another dog or a housefull of cats, and strays showing up at his door were always invited in with a welcoming bark and a wag of his tail, him entertaining his guests until their owners arrived.
He is greatly and sadly missed, his immense presence and being missing from his home, and I truly look forward to the day when I will be reunited with my sweetheart at Rainbow Bridge.
Momma misses you, Big Handsome, and I thank God every day for the time we had together. I don't know what I did to deserve you, but I will be forever grateful that you were my special, wonderful companion and I know one day the tears will disappear and every thought of you will once again put a smile on my face and joy in my heart.
Rest in Peace Big Win!!!!! You can once again run and frolic and be pain free. The sound of thunder and a flash of lightning will never scare you again. "Yodel" at Dale all day, if it make's you happy, and eat lots of fresh, green grass. I LOVE YOU!!!
