    Defaultlab and red nosed pit?

    I've recently gotten a lyellow lab and everyone keeps telling me that he has red nosed pit him because he has a red nose. I've never had a yellow lab before and i'm not sure if this is a common trait in yellow labs.
    So, my quesion is:
    Can yellow labs have red noses without being mixed with a red nosed pit?

    is it more pinkish?

    There are yellow labs called "dudleys" that have pink pigment instead of the standard black.

    Does he look anything like this?

    yes, a yellow labrador with little or no pigment will have a pinkish nose (and eye rims as well) - it's called a dudley.

    There are a few members on the board who have them. I think they're freakin' adorable, personally. 

    Congrats on your new baby.

    Dudleys have pink noses and have pink pigment around their eyes. Yellow labs also can get something called "snow nose" in winter where their noses lose some of their black pigment and look pink at that time of year.
