Just something to think about - my Sunny was beginning to get stains under his eyes. He was getting really long at the face and top knot. I gave in yesterday and took him to the groomer and cut the top knot off and trimmed his face. I wasn't impressed with her job but noticed right away that he tears a lot less and the stains are gone. He isn't wet at all there anymore. She trimmed his beard too.:chili: Just out of curiosity, how many of you out there have lots of tearing and are wearing the top knot. How many who don't wear a top knot have excessive tearing and staining?????
