This well loved young man is Toby, one of Darla and Einstein’s males born October 8, 2014. What I would suggest is to be sure his eyes are cleaned out and that there is not a turned in eyelash that is causing the problem (the vet should have seen that but sometimes they pull the bottom eyelid down rather than looking at it straight on….it is worth a try and an easy fix). Keep the tear duct wiped and you can use human eye drops, the non allergy ones are best for this time of year. I thank you, Jenn and George for this great update. Toby lives in Lethbridge, Alberta.

Just an update on Toby! He is settled in very nicely with George and I, and loved dearly by everyone in our family. He is a great pup and listens very well for the most part. His newest tricks are sitting pretty, and “leave it” when it comes to treats and goodies. He is excellent on and off the leash and is very well socialized with both humans and other dogs. He is crate trained and has not had any accidents for the last few months. Toby has a huge personality and his facial expressions are priceless! In saying all of this, there is a health concern we have with his eyes. Toby got an eye infection about a month ago, and we got him to the vet ASAP and received drops for them. We gave him the drops for one week as directed and then about a week later the eye infection was back. We brought him back to the vet and they put us back on the drops but this time for two weeks. We just finished the two week span and he went for another check up this morning. Our vet said his eyes are looking better, but I can already see the residue starting to build again. Do you have this issue with any of your other doodles? Is there something specific we should be doing for Toby to prevent this from happening? Other than that he seems to be fine. He has been sick a couple times with a bit of puking and diarrhea but nothing too serious. Every time we take him places we always get multiple compliments on how he is such a good looking, happy dog! Thanks for the updates on Toby’s family!
