|Snowy...it sounds like you have `Dudley nose.` Yep! That`s the real name of it! It is perfectly fine, there is nothing to worry about. I did some research in the past because Takiah`s nose turns different colours as well. Here is the def`n of Dudley Nose from the net:
`Previous black nose turns chocolate brown to light pink; more common in Yellow Labs, Golden Retrievers, Poodles, and Dobermans; not associated with a disease process`
Takiah`s nose changes colours with the seasons. She doesn`t have Dudley`s nose, but what is called`Snow Nose.` Basically in the summer she has a strip of brown, and in the colder months it turns almost pink. They aren`t sure exactly why it happens, but they think it is due to lack of sunlight in the winter...the nose turns lighter to absorb more vit. A (or E??) from the sunlight. Many northern dogs developed this trait. It is completely normal, but just to answer your question, yep some dog`s noses do indeed change colours often.
