Yeah, that's it. As far as I know, it happens to a number of breeds. My GSD gets it, which is how we found out. We pretty much freaked the first winter it happened. Went to the vet, who referred to it as "snow nose".

[quote name='Sanvean']Cute!

Is "snow nose" what happens to huskies in the winter when they aren't exposed to the sun and their noses lighten? In Maltese, that's called "winter nose."[/quote]

Sanvean, the lack of sun is a theory but I don't know if it's actually proven. I know of someone in Queensland whose malamute gets "snow nose" but they certainly don't have any lack of sun there, even in winter. So there must be other contributing factors but I'm really not sure what.

I would think that it would be just the opposite... that it would be from the sun, considering the sun usually bleaches yer hair and stuff like that.. hmm.... maybe I'll go do a little search on it, I never really knew about it before. I always thought some dogs were just born like that :oops:

No need to be embaressed I thought this also. Cracker was born with a pink nose, and I just assumed some husky breeds were born that way. I've never even heard of "winter nose" or "snow nose" :oops:

[b]Why are some Siberian noses partially pink and partially black?[/b]This is called a "snow nose." The black pibkent lightens during the winter months. It goes away when there is more sunlight, as in the summer months.[/quote]

This is called a "snow nose", and is fairly common in the breed. A snow nose is a reddish or pink marking on a black or liver colored nose. Snow nose can disappear over warmer months and reappear over the winter months. There is nothing wrong with a snow nose, and it is perfectly acceptable in the breed. [/quote]
