Question Snow nose?

So I was noticing the other day that Arthur's nose is now a pinkish color mostly instead of the black it was when we got him this past summer. After doing some research online, I discovered the concept of snow/winter nose. Does anyone have any ideas/thoughts/suggestions/info on this? I know that I can eliminate him using plastic bowls to eat and drink out of because his are bamboo.

This is a condition that some hounds, not all, can be prone to.

I use stainless steel bowls for mine.

Well, I'm half tempted to wait until spring and summer to see what happens. Because, if I read it right, the color can come back.

Not that it's a problem for us. If he's not suffering with just a pink nose rather than black, I'm okay with it. Guess he's just like us all...with our own quirks and imperfections.

Bella has a pink nose, it did start off black, but the amount of digging and hiding stolen items and food she does I think she's rubbed all the black off, I can always tell when she's been digging in the garden now though especially funny when the compost stains her nose. She looks so different with a black nose.
