I have always been under the impression that it was due to the fact that their eyes tend to protrude a little more than other dogs. I guess this means they tend to get dust and other little things in them easier. I'm not sure though. Good question.

Thank you that sounds like it would be a good enough reason why.
I never thought of that.

Thank you Littlegirl

because they are so close to the ground they are more prone to getting dust etc in their eyes which make them weep - also sometimes their tear ducts cant cope because they are so small or they may be blocked (so next time ur at the vets u may want them to check them) very cold or hot or sudden climate change seems to make them weep alot too
