Hi there BB :)
Someone will correct me if i'm wrong but i think conjuctivitus is a common thing in dogs with protuberant eyes. If you've seen photos of Voltaire you'll know his lower lids hang down - this means he picks up a lot of muck in them... he's had eye infections 2/3 times and the symptoms sound similar to what you're describing - a big blob of sticky goo in the morning?? My vet prescribed 'fradexam' eye drops twice a day and it cleared up really quickly both times. I even found out that i could buy the eye drops from the chemists (pharmacy? drug store? - whatever u call it?? :?  :lol: !!!) without passing through the vet - it's the same stuff as for humans in his particular case. Bathing it like you're doing is good to clean the eye - but if it's still gooey tomorrow, back to the vets i'm afraid  :( .
Good luck!!
