Why do some dogs have a pink area around their whole eyes? It looks a little odd in some maltese pictures with pink rings around their eyes! can anyone explain?

That little one is a Shih Tzu. He has a realy cute face, and it looks like one blue eye. If you notice his fur is dark on his ears also, maybe he has some coloring in the hair around his eyes in addition to some tearstain?

FYI....Shih Tzu also have black points UNLESS they have liver or blue color in their coats and then the points are not black the points will be lighter and their eyes can be lighter also.

I have seen maltese that do not have bull black points and the eye rims, nose, and pads have some pink... no eye liner
.. it looks different, but still adorable. I think the original post by malteseIloveI is about a very bad tear stain problem if so try this link:
