LOL. I almost jokingly replied to Claudia to use a black magic marker. I didn't realize people were actually doing such a thing. Good grief. Why is that allowed?

Ben gets snow nose in the winter, but darkens again in the summer. If I hadn't read about it here in the forum, I would have worried.

I once asked the question: Does anyone ever dye the fur of a show Golden? (someone asked me why would anyone do that? My answer: to cover up something like a white blaze, or to make the fur the color which has been more prominent amongst the champion Goldens in recent events).

If nose paint is being sold, it makes me think that someone might have also considering dyeing the fur.

I think considering how many baths they get, the hair dye probably wouldn't last that long.....

I think the hair dye probably would change the feel of the coat.

You would be amazed what gets used, chalk, hair spray, dye, nail polish. Pigment is a big thing for some!

There's a product, I can't for the life of me remember what it is, but it's a shampoo set, gold on gold I believe, and it enhances the golden coat color. You can also get black on black as well for those black dogs. (I used to handle)

I Thought altering a show dog by painting or dyeing was a definite no,no. I did however once see some people at a show out behind a big RV spray painting a dog!!

On the nose question, Zoe's is pretty dark but has lightened slightly in the last couple weeks as she's been outside in the snow (snow nose?). She also has a treat spot on the back of her tongue. She's 4 1/2.

You can get kicked out of a conformation class, if it is determined you blackened the nose. Of all of my dogs, Sally had a black nose that never faded until she died at 12.5 years. My Laney had a pink nose, starting at about two. Cookie started with a black nose that became dark brown around 2.5 years. Of her three pups that I have, 10.5 year old Mantha has a black nose, never changes, her brother, George gets a snow nose, returns to black,and 1/2 sister , Tiki, has a jet black, never fading nose at 8.5 years. Of Mantha's offspring 1/2 siblings Mick and Basil, Mick at 5.5 has a black nose that fades a little in Winter, but comes back, and Basil at 3.5 has a jet black nose, like, Mom. Tiki's daughter, Em had a gorgeous black nose, but started to fade at 2.5 years. Basil's daughter, Gabby has a jet black nose, but she is only 5.5 months. Friends of mine look at the roof of the dog's mouth to evaluate how good the pigment will be...

I heard somewhere that if they eat out of plastic bowls it might turn the nose pink. Not sure how accurate that is though - figured I would put it out there if anyone else has heard of that happening.

As it turns out his nose did return to jet black after winter.
I have always been told that he has good pigment especially since he has a treat spot so I was a bit surprised to see that he had a snow nose. He is still as cute as a button!
We have always used stainless steel bowls or ceramic bowls.
