Is it common for a poodle's nose to start out black at birth and then turn a brownish color as it gets older? That's what has happened to Teddy. I was just looking at some pictures I took of him a few months ago and his nose is jet black. Now it looks more liver colored.

Hi! I had a similar question - search on "Black Nose Fading." Our dog L.E. Belle's black nose really fades out during the winter - do you think that might be what is happening with Teddy?

I guess that's entirely possible. I've only had him since this past August, so I suppose I'll have to wait a few months to be able to answer that. Interesting.

I noticed it with L.E. Belle last winter, but it really "blacked up" this summer... here's a close up of her after a swim in the river... (her "Teddy Bear trim" looked a lot better dry:)); the second pic was taken about a month later. She turned 2 this week, so this is her second winter. And it happened again!
