His weeping eyes have surfaced in the last couple of years. The vet thinks it's some kind of allergy (probably all the dust in my house), but anti-histamine eye drops have proved useless, as has bathing his eyes with tea / salt water.

If anyone out there has experienced something similar with an ageing dog, please let me know of anything that works as his eyes are the only thing spoiling his good looks.

In actual fact, he is quite calm and well behaved apart from cocking his leg up everything perpendicular, including jumpers for goalposts in the park and small crouching children on the beach (I know, extremely embarassing!), and it has been a privilege to adopt him as a family member.
