All about Caesar
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.

I am 10 year olds and some say very distinguished. My human is very attached to me and I take him to his job every day. I have been known to sulk somewhat,if I am left at home for any reason.
I used to earn a living by guarding and herding horses but I am retired from that now and just concentrate on my human.
I also live with my 4 year old daughter, Cleo. She is still very rambunctious, but she knows who is alpha dog.
