Nova gets eye boogers too. And no one in this house smokes.. we also live in a very high allergy area (Arizona.. dry and so full of pollen.. oh yay). They don't seem to bother her at all. I just wipe them off and its no sweat.
I wouldn't be surprised if its allergies. She's already allergic to Nylon collars, cayenne pepper, lamb...i wonder what else. :roll:
