|Whale eye, like so much of canine communication, is just one piece of the puzzle. A dog can show whale eye simply because he's looking off to the side. It doesn't mean he's stressed or resource-guarding, etc.
Risa has pretty big eyes and you can almost always see some of the whites when she's looking around normally. (In fact, in my main picture you can easily see the whites on both of her eyes.) She does give whale eye pretty frequently (fearful, dog reactive dog after all) but not all the time. It's really contextual.
With all dog communication, you have to take in the entire dog. Not just the parts. It's the whole picture that truly conveys what a dog is saying.
