Hi,
Does anyone else hava a ****-a-poo whose nose has changed from black to pinkish? I recently noticed that Milo's is becoming pink and it used to be completely black. After searching for it on the internet I discovered that it is a common problem with some breeds, the poodle being one of them. It also said that sometimes they turn pink during the winter months and then turn back to black once spring comes and they are exposed to more sunshine. I was wondering if anyone else has noticed this with their dogs and if so did they stay pink or change back to black in spring?
:confused:

Thank you for all the replies. No, it's not completely pink, but I only noticed it about a week ago, and it seems to be getting more pink daily. I just took a pic of him and will post a before with his black nose and a current one the way it looks today.

Thank you for the info. Yes Milo's nose looks a lot like Flo's. He doesn't have any other problem, and I didn't notice this happening last winter. He has an appointment next week to get groomed and that is the same place as his vet, so I will ask them about it just to be sure all is well. Milo will be 3 years old on Feb. 28. I hope it will turn black again in the spring...but we love him no matter what color his nose is!

Milo doesn't seem to mind the cold very much. I always put a sweater on him when it is this bad though. What really seems to bother him is when it warms up a little bit and then everything is all slushy...he lifts his foot up all the time for me to wipe it and hold it to warm up a little. He has boots, but always manages to lose them as soon as he steps into the snow. In the summer I have noticed that he loves to lay in the sun! I'm always trying to get him to move into the shade when it's really hot out because I've heard that white dogs can get a sunburn!

Well summer's here at last, and guess what...Milo's nose is getting black again! He must have had 'winter nose'. He loves laying in the sun on our deck up at Wasaga Beach, and also loves to swim...so I guess all that sun is the answer eh!
