  • Winter nose?

    I've noticed recently that my Maltese's little black button nose has been getting lighter. I tried researching it on the web and found a couple things about something called "winter nose". it said that during the colder months, white dogs might lose a little color on their nose, but it will return once the warmer months come back around. Anyone else heard of this?

      My dog must have that her nose is browner than usual and dry.

        When I was a kid my Lhasa had the same thing. Her nose would be blackin the summer and then turn brown in the winter. Weird.

          Snow nose, or winter nose is also very common in Malamutes and Huskys. It's just a mild loss of pigment. When summer comes, they get their "tan" back.

            Maltese

            I have a regestered Maltese and he has always had a lighter nose he is now 9 months old. His sisters nose is black as can be, he also has hazel eyes.

              Poodles too

              The same thing happens to my white standard poodles. They get a little liver colored during the winter months. Nothing a little black marksalot can't fix.
