    DefaultYellow Lab pink nose

    hi,
    Charlie is a yellow lab with black trim (that sounds funny but I don't know how else to say it). He's not a Dudley. His nose went pink in the winter, like it usually does but it hasn't gone black again???? I live in Southwestern Ontario Canada.

    You are describing snow nose or winter nose which occurs in light colored dogs.* There are a couple of theories about why it occurs...among them loss of sunlight and vitamin B difficiencies. While younger dogs noses may turn back to black in the summer, most of the time it is permanent.

    Murray developed a snow nose when he was 2. He's 5 now and you can see that it is still pink.

    No worries. It usually happens to most yellow labs.

    One of my yellow labs nose turns pinkish every winter. As the weather warms, it darkens again. The other yellow seems unaffected by the weatehr change.
