All about Jesse
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.

After a long fight with cancer, Jesse died peacefully in the garden on her pillow in her sleep. A beautiful dog who was wonderful in every way.
My son's first birthday present, they used to sleep together every night. Sharing pillow and blankets. Id sneak into his room someitmes just to see them with there arms and paws wrapped around each other both snoring softly. Our first dog, so patient with children and nursing with newborn kittens.
We love you so much baby girl. Without you the world is alien. No more walks to the river, chasing squirrels in the woods or Dairy Queen puppy peakercone. We miss you so much its crushing. Play with Fluffy at Rainbow Bridge untl we can be together again, no more cancer, no more arthritis, no more pain.
Rest in Peace JesseDog and Fluffy. We'll always be yours
