At least your phone thinks I'm famous! What a face...

There's quite a bit of inflammation in the medial canthic (corners of the eyes nearest to his nose) areas. I suspect that that inflammation is increasing tear production (epiphora) and the excess tears are spilling onto his face and staining it. Tears contain porphyrin dyes. The goal is to find out why epiphora has arisen - an allergic/irritant conjunctivitis? A dacryocystitis (infection of the lacrimal apparatus)?

to the vet huh? He has a recheck to get stitches removed a wk from Monday can it wait?

That's a good time for the vet to take a look at Frankie's eyes. There's no rush as long as he appears comfortable - no squinting (blepherospasm) or pawing at his eyes.

OK doesn't seem to bug him. Some dogs have stains all the time, a lot of times the white dogs... Is that different?

There's always a reason for staining even if it's just that there's an inadequate lacrimal lake - not enough room for the amount of tears being produced. The color of the dog isn't a factor. The lighter the fur, the easier to see the staining, however.

I'm sorry I forgot about this one! Had frankie seen and you were right, they gave me the steroid eye cream after testing for corneal abrasion. He's doing much better now thank you!!

No worries. Good to hear Frankie is going to live. Thank you once again.
