Wendy, a light colored nose and yellow eyes like that is a trait that comes along with the chocolate gene, and seeing how Sera has chocolate in her coloring, it is normal. It won't change, that's her nose color. Chiquita isn't chocolate, but she has a light nose and yellow eyes, it just means she carries the chocolate genes and if bred to a dark colored dog, she will probably have chocolate pups. Ciao! :wave:

About noses changing colour...!
Before we had Poppy we had a labrador, a beautiful pale yellow with a black nose. After about 6 months his nose turned pink! The vet told me that certain plastic products contain chemicals that CAN change a dogs nose colour..it turns out that the plastic bowl we put his water in was to blame! So now we only use stainless steel bowls. It sounds odd I know, but our vet said that she had come across many dogs who had used plastic bowls and their noses had changed colour! Weird!

Bosco's nose was pink and black when we first got him but it turned all black later. Lola's nose is a light brown color and I was hoping it wouldn't change. It sounds like it won't! YAY!!
