It is probably the damp from her eyes, in which a yeasty growth can occur. Try gently wiping the area with a soft bit of cotton wool and water or you can buy eye cleaner. This is common in breeds like cavaliers and more common in puppies. Often it disappears in adults. Be sure to wipe away from the eyes themselves and never touch the eye. You can ask your vet about this too. Many people use special products like Eye Envy for cleaning eyes.

I bought a package of baby washcloths, and use a clean one dipped in warm water each morning to clean their eye area. When I'm done, they get a kiss on the nose- they actually look forward to it (I think ;)) each day.

I am glad you brought this up. I have always wondered about my Ebony, she has a funny smell when I clean her eyes but my other two are ok.
