As you can see, this dog's eye waters excessively. A lot of people think it may be allergies, or a cold but you should never try and diagnose your pet yourself!! This is more common is some breeds than others (Chows, Charpeis, etc) The dog is born with this condition..the eyelids actually roll under causing a constant irritation on the eye. If left untreated aside from the pain the pet is in, it could develop ulcers on the eye and eventually go blind. This is known as Entropion
