All about Kiara
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 Kiara and I am a Siberian Husky, this is my site! I am a certified therapy dog with St John's Ambulance, I get to visit people in the hospital and make them feel better. I like everybody, but I can get in moods where I seem quite stand offish, my mom says I am rude and stuck up, I guess I can be a little full of myself =)
I also compete in agility with the AAC, I have just started though, and I am not sure if I really like the audience. I also go to lots of obedience classes because my mom is an apprentice trainer. I love tracking, pulling and fishing things out of the bottom of my kiddie pool. Snow is great....duh!! Sleeping is also good, but only after a few hours of excercise!
My pet peeves are dogs that don't want to play and cats that think they can take me out!! Like my cat....oliver!!! He thinks he is sooo tough!!!
Oh ya!! I also work at a dog daycare, well my mom is the one who gets the cheques, but I do all the work! It is my job to make sure that all the dogs are tired at the end of the day, so I have to play and play and play...its a hard job!
The picture above is me....doing the spread jump at an agility practise! Aren't I great!
