    Default Are these Changes Normal?

    I have noticed Cherokee's nose pigment is changing.
    The black skin appears to be maybe filling in more area on his nose.



    And the undercoat near his tan areas appears to be coming in grey...



    He had "Badger" markings when he was just a small puppy.

    Seems pretty normal to me. Missy has black undercoat and her nose got darker too.

    looks normal to me too... Wiley's steadily been losing his badger markings on his ears, & the pink spots on his nose are gone.

    Apollo is solid white, and he is losing the pigment on his nose as well. I think it is totally normal for this to happen.

    You can see the changes on his nose, but not his snout.

    very normal to see the dark undercoat. sometimes they will also get light tan colored markings where there were none when they were younger. mine always seem to get a dark/tan spot near the base of their tails or on their backs which I could swear they never had as puppies!

    I have not noticed any change in Moose's nose or anywhere else for that matter. Golden Retrievers tend to get what is called "snow nose" or "winter nose" and their black nose turns rusty looking.

    Yes, I am seeing... small tan spots here and there, then they seem to go away at times... weird...
