Hump - see my avatar - had a dark brown nose since birth but the last few weeks it has got considerably lighter, it's now more a caramel colour. He's 19 months old, is it just a part of his growing up?
Yup, I agree- I have seen "snow noses" on some Maltese as well. A friend of mine as a very cute, well bred Maltese, perfect pigmentation..but during the colder months, her usually cute little black nose turns pale..heehee..is actually kind of cute. But once she is out in a sun for a while (maybe 1/2 hr for a couple days.) her nose turns back to normal black.
