I think eye goobers are fairly common in Havanese. My breeder told me to wipe them off her every day with a soft wet cloth. Of course, I failed to do it regularly and had to deal with the harden stuff. Then I taught myself to wipe her eyes every single day right after I brushed my own teeth, so now I almost never forget and it is fairly easy. I just say “eye wipe”and she hops up on a couch to let me do it, although I suspect she would prefer not to...there are dozens amd dozens of commercial products designed to do the task, but over time, I have found the wet soft cotton wash cloth works best. I use warm water.
I think tear staining is something different from these little grey goobers that wipe off fairly easily if you do it every morning. I only find them in morning.
