eyelid

concerned with my little dogs eyelid that is pink all around the one eye. There is black hard
stuff that I need to scrap off the corner of her eye every once in a while.
What can it be?  Remedy?

The black hard stuff is nothing to worry about.  All dogs get some kind of eye-boogers - just like people do.  :-)  It sounds like he might have a bit of an infection causing excess tears that picks up dirt and results in black eye boogers.

You'll need to have your vet take a look at the eyelid, and will probably need some antibiotic drops to get it better.  Don't let it go without treatment, or you'll end up with a bigger and far more expensive problem.

If this is a very young dog, ts possible you might be seeing an eye condition called "cherry eye".  In any event, the dog needs to be seen by a vet, as Jaybay said.  It could well be an infection and need treatment asap.
