question regarding eyes...

The standard states:

They should be quite round in form, of moderate size, neither sunken nor bulging, and in color should be very dark. The lids should cover the white of the eyeball, when the dog is looking directly forward, and the lid should show no "haw."

question Part 1:

There is no mention regarding pigment on the lid. It does mention the lid should cover the white and show no haw.
However, I find judges faulting a dog lacking 1/3 of pigment on one eye only and yet have no problem putting up a dog where the white of the eyeball and haw are showing almost 3/4 around the eye. There appears to be more fault judging on lack of pigment on lid rather than white eyeballs and visible haws.

question Part 2:
What would one consider "Moderate" size? I personally love small dark eyes but the standard states moderate. What would one consider bulging? pug like? I think the shape we all can understand but I am confused with color and size. happy.gif

Would really appreciate everyones feedback on this. Thank you!
