Is the pink on the lid around the eye or on the eye itself?

It looks like she might have some irritation in the right eye--the pink around it along the inside toward the snout is the nictitating membrane (third eyelid). When that gets irritated or if the eye is injured, the membrane pulls up onto the eye. If she's had it like that for a while, it's not a bad idea to have it looked at by a vet to find the cause.

She's a beautiful girl, by the way. Welcome to the board!

It might if you got it in her eyes, but there are a lot of other causes. When is her appointment? If the redness/irritation continues, she should probably be seen this week for the eye problem.

Is there a particular reason you bathe her so often? Most dogs don't need to be shampooed that frequently and giving her many baths might result in dry skin.
