All about Triton
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.

Hello My name is Triton .
I am a pure bred chow puppy. I love to go for walks & play with all of the other dogs .
I have my own Doggy door, so I can go out when ever I want.
My favorite toy is a stuffed mellon with bells in it.
I saw my first snowfall this year & I love it. I would rather be out side in it all day & night, but Mom rules so I have to come in.
I have a very good temperment & I love to meet everyone I see, because my parents have socialized me big time from the first day I went to live with them.
I am afraid of tin foil. It comes out I run out my doggie door.
What is up with that stuff anyway?
