    Tear stains, lots of dogs have this problem.  It shows up much worse on white dogs.

    Tear stains, mostly. Also, dog hair/fur is thinner around the eye region in general, for many dogs.

    Its tear stains..  And it has nothing to do with a dogs age.    Diet and allergies can contribute to the staining.
