:bye: Lenny (Astro) seems to be getting a pink nose. I googled it and found this phenomenon called Snow Nose. :| It seems light colored dogs have a change in their nose coloring in the winter?

Anyone have anything on this? :shock:

*snort* That was the best response ever! lol I actually paused to figure it out for a second!

But yeah, Score's nose is a bit lighter in the winter...in certain lights, it has a brown tinge that's not there in the warmer months.
