All about Meisje
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.

Meisje is extremely sensitive and intuitive. She never barks unless riled up in play with a ball. She can be a total goof- loves playing hide and seek, jumps 5 times her height for sticks and balls and smiles when she greets you at the door!
She's medium sized but thinks she's a lap dog and will take any opportunity to curl up on top of you. She prefers sitting beside me on a park bench rather than at my feet . She is completely terrified of my neighbours cat...all it has to do is look at her and she's makes wide circles around it, tail tucked in ears down and hair on end...
Always makes me laugh....she is personality plus! - Truly my best pal!
