We trim the anal area with blunt-nosed scissors and keep the hair a bit shorter underneath the area in question. But we don't shave and don't make it too bare - I hate that naked bum look! But our guys also don't seem to have loose stools either, so it stays a bit tidier. Occasionally we need to do a little bum wash between their regular baths which happen every 1 to 2 weeks.
Regarding the eyes, we use a flea comb to clean out the eye goobers, usually twice a day. Really helps to keep them neat and tidy around the eyes. They were worse when teething, and we needed to wipe the eye area clean (just used a kleenex) as they seemed to get more "teary" then. We also trim the hair between the eyes with the blunt-nosed scissors. Some people are patient enough for the hair to grow long and lay flat, but I couldn't stand it, so out came the scissors!
