wetness around eyes
I am looking at this yorkie to bring home with me, but I have noticed a lot of her hair is wet around her eyes compared to her sisters. I was just wondering if this is something I should be concerned about or if it is normal in some pups.

That's what I noticed about my boy after I brought him home... The vet gave him a clean bill of health though. I read some puppies' hair are getting into the eyes and bother them. It's getting better as he got older, it's mostly about remembering to comb those areas pretty often they get goo as well and try to keep the hair down out of the eye (not easy ). Make sure you see the vet though...

My poodle gets like that at times and it was worst when she was a pup. My vet said it was normal and that I should just wipe the eyes from the inside out. Be careful to use one wipe and then use another part of the eye wipe in order to prevent infection. Also, make sure that there aren't any hairs growing in the direction of the sclera. If so, just carefully comb them down.
Hope this helps and good luck with your beautiful baby!!!!
