Default Eye question AND accident - help!

My 13 week old chi has a really leaky eye tonight. Wondering if this is normal or possibly a result of too much "play" with the new puppy?

Then..Chloe was sitting in the recliner w/ my husband tonight and acting crazy. Suddenly she jumped off the chair and landed on her head. She made the worst noise ever and cried for a good minute. We checked her over and got her to walk around for us. She looked ok but I am wondering about concussion and just really wondering if I am over Reacting. She fell about 3-4 feet.

Jadzia showed so much concern for Chloe that she was hurt. Jadzia walked around with her tail down and whined. Now she is sleeping sitting up- which I swear she has never done - but it is like she is on watch. These are amazing creatures!

Hope that both chi's are OK. I would watch Chloe for any bad reactions. Problebly she scared the dickens out of herself.

Ike has done that 3 times now, he just threw himself off of my husbands lap. The other time was off of the love seat. Then recently fell off of a stool that I didn't think he could get on. I watched him really close and when he fell asleep I woke him up a few times to make sure he was aware of things around him. We have all tile floor and heard his head hit, he screamed awful. The eye I could keep a watch on, she might have something in it or scratched it on something., I think Ike's eyes water a lot, the vet didn't seem concerned.

Watch the eye for signs of irritation or pain...increased tear production, redness, pawing or rubbing the eye, light sensitivity, change in pupil size/reaction, swelling of the lids...
Hope she is ok from the fall and she was only frightened...
