All about Moose
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.

My name is Moose, and I am 2 years old.
I spend my days laying around, and playing with my Teddy Bear, Murphy. He's my favourite!! I love to be cuddled, hugged, and I like to run around with my friends.
I like laying on my mom's lap and like to cuddle with her and my step-dad at night in bed. I love going outside, and love playing in the snow!
I like to say hello to everyone when I'm outside walking.
