Cleo has a slightly wandering eye. She doesn't seem to have any difficulty seeing out of it or anything, I guess it's the same way that some people have wandering eyes. I don't know the technical term for this. If you're worried about it maybe you should ask you vet.

Dylan has this too as did his sire. I don't think his eye is "wondering" though. I may be wrong but by the red eye in this pic, both eyes seem to be looking in the same direction!

Neither of them have a problem there at all, what that is, is where the "sclera" in their eye is NOT pigmented. A hallmark of the Cavalier breed is a double pigmentation of the eye, in a lot of Cavaliers the "sclera" does NOT pigment, breeders will say that a puppy is showing "White of eye" and that is what this is! It is not a fault with the eye, it does NOT affect the vision in anyway that I am aware of, both dogs pictured both show the classic "White of eye" that is just one more reason why an otherwise "promising" puppy will be sold as a pet instead.

In Vegas's case his slight lack of "cushioning" under his eye accentuates the white of eye showing. The pic of Dylan actually helps to illustrate what I mean, they are 2 beautiful boys, white of eye or not! :lotsaluv:

Hope this helps??

Thanks Cathryn :) that's interesting. I wasn't worried about Dylan's eye, just trying to reassure Rocky.
