All about Comet
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.

Comet is truly one of a kind. He is the greatest dog I have ever had. I got him from the Humane Society when he was about three months(we are unsure of exacty date when he was born). He came from a abused home. It took time for him to open up to people and animals around him but, after time he improved. He is worth all the time in the world. He is still timid, but opens up after a few encounters with the person. He is more comfortable with women. Prefers people over other animals. Prefers cats over other dogs.
He is very smart and will always remember the tunes to commercial (where you'll find a dog in it) and will run to the television screen to see it. Comet loves watching animals on TV and hockey. I have never seen a dog that can be so attentive to the screen for a long period of time.
He loves to herd cows and did some herding back in Ottawa.
He is loving, loyal and likes to have his "own" time once in a while.
I love him so much!
