All about Buddy
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.

Hi I'm Buddy,
Wow, I feel like a star! My new mom has taken so many pictures of me! I've only lived with my new family for just a little over a year now. I am having so much fun I just love it!
I'm what you would call well travelled and I waited a long time to find my forever home.
My new mom says that maybe I should have been named Thumper because my tail thumps all the time. I can't help it though, I'm just so happy! I'm learning not to be afraid of everybody and I have two new best friends as well. Seamus and Chaylo.
I love to chase squirrels and tennis balls too! My favourite thing to do though is cuddle. I could cuddle all day long!
