Otto had a black nose and we have noticed it appears to be changing to a dark brown is this norm?

I've noticed that Doc's nose has lightened up some, too. It started out very black. I wondered if it was going to change color, but, I guess time will tell.

It might be snow-nose...but in checking for a link to have you look at, I found this info:

Other causes of loss of nose color are vitaligo, snow nose, and plastic dish nasal dermatitis

Vitaligo causes black pigment in the nose and sometimes the lips to fade to brown.

Snow nose causes the nose to fade to brown in winter; normal color returns as summer approaches. Snow nose occurs mainly in white-coated breeds; the color change can become permanent in older dogs. It is not associated with disease.

Plastic dish dermatitis can occur if the dog eats or drinks out of plastic or rubber bowls. It is triggered by a reaction to an antioxidant found in the dishes.
