Ol' blue eye

Isn't this the bluest eye you ever saw? Is it real? Could it be a glass eye? I've seen eyes as blue as this in Old English Sheepdogs but I've never seen it before in a Shih-Tzu and apparently it's not acceptable in the breed standard. Perhaps his eye was damaged as this can result in it turning blue - I suspect this is the case here. Owner and dog are taking a rest outside a pharmacy in Menton.

I know of a couple of people who have Shih Tzus with blue eyes but since this little one only had one, maybe it is damaged. I love your blog, by the way.

Saw this pic and just had to let you know that my 4 month old Shih Tzu puppy was born with one (bright!)blue eye, varied in shades, jagged at the edge. Not damaged in any way, according to the vet.
