AKC Papers-standards

I recently purchased a maltese from a breeder in Franklin Tn in NOvember I have not received my papers yet after the 2nd request. Is this normal I searched three months for a maltese puppy & was leary of buying on in my area of Lancaster/York PA. Also my maltese does not have black rims around the eyes yet - will the rims turn black or does the sun do this according to the breeder that I purchased my maltese from. I got this breeder's name out of Dog world Magazine. Also I'm concerned about eye staining is there a book that someone recommends to answer my questions.
