All about Milly
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.

As a retired racer, Milly loves her retirement and can often be found sleeping on her favourite bed.
She is very friendly and loves children and adults. In fact, when we are out for walks she get offended if people don't pay attention to her! She has a wonderful temperment and loves to explore new surroundings.
She loves going for car rides, cookies, her squeaky toys and playing with her doggie friends.
Even though her racing career is over, she still likes an occasional long run outdoors and she comes back from it with a big smile on her face.
