Did you know that dogs have a third eyelid?  It helps keep the surface of their eyes clean and protects them.  I tend to notice it the most on Bloo when he’s falling asleep.  As his little eyes are slowly closing, the third eyelid starts to close as well.  It comes from the tear-duct area.  Most mammals, in fact, have a third eyelid except for humans and pigs.

Sometimes our fun facts are a bit random, too.  🙂  Oh, and a word to the wise.  Never search “canine third eyelid” on Google Images.  Trust me.

Happy Friday, everyone!
