Do dogs have two eyelids?

Because I was just watching my dog when she was sleeping, and she didn't have her eyelids closed, but it sort of looked like her eyes were rolling around, except it almost looked like another eyelid that was blinking, so do dogs have two eyelids?

Dogs do not have two eyelids. They have three eyelids to be precise. It has the upper and lower eyelid with the third one inside the other two. This inner eyelid is called 'haw' and it is used to prevent dust or dirt from entering the dog's eye.
