Does Your Small Dog Cry With Actual Tears?

At some point you may have looked down at your dog and noticed watery eyes. It’s easy to assume that the dog is crying, but those tears are actually caused by something other than emotions.

Does your small dog cry with actual tears? While these may not be based on emotion, we as dog owners need to take notice in case of an infection or an issue with their eye(s).
