It gets like that when he goes outside and plays. I think he's allergic to something outside, but I'm not sure what yet. Right now it looks fine, because we've been inside for a few hours.

Congratulations - Winston is a real cutie! LOL You know I'm a fan of Bostons; I have two myself.

"If" the blue eye was going to affect his hearing, it would have already done so and the only way to know is to have the BAER test. Your regular vet can't do this test but can refer you to a canine audiologist. Occasionally, there will be test clinics at shows/events.
If Winston responds to sound, then you know he can hear, at least in one ear. Sometimes deafness is just in one ear.

I love the Boston breed and hope Winston brings you many years of fun and companionship. I know he and PC will be BBF! LOL

One of my Bostons has a half white face and it can get a little "pink" after playing hard or if her allergies are acting up. You can address his tear stains with a t. of powdered buttermilk on his food once a day and with wiping his face a couple times a day. I prefer to not use Eye Envy or Angel Eyes. Also, I know you're feeding a good food but things like beet pulp in kibble can contribute too....others swear filtered/bottled water helps get rid of them too.

He has selective hearing! He comes when he knows something good will come out of it!

He's on Orijen puppy, no beet pulp there. I think his tears stains are from them being neglected all this time, he's never had anyone wipe his face before. I would never use Angel Eyes either, because I'm not a fan of giving a dog antibiotics unless absolutely necessary. I'll try the buttermilk, though PC's breeder has a formula he uses on his showdogs that gets rid of them within a week. But again, I'm not so sure harsh chemicals are the way to go!

Oh, and expect random emails. I've seen your Bostons and they are adorable! I never thought I'd have one, so I never took the time to research the breed. I might have some questions!

I didn't know I was expecting another so soon either! It's a shock to both of us!

You really need to plan a trip here with Beeze! I'll take some great shots of him on the beach!!
