All about Roswell
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.

Roswell is truly an 'Unidentified
Flying Object'. He loves to play
with the dogs down the street, Morgan and Indy, both yellow labs.
Roswell could play all
day, retrieving his Kong or just a plain old tennis ball.
He grew up around our cat, Zoey, and he thinks he is a cat sometimes,
his constant pouncing and pawing.
He loves everyone he meets, Roswell is a true golden.
We would like to get Roswell into flyball. With the proper
training, he would make a great team member.
