Every Saturday I like to do a short post with some Siberian Husky fun facts.
This week I'll be touching on something called "snow nose"
|"This be my snow nose!"|
If you look closely at Mika's nose, you will notice that it is no longer completely black.
It is speckled pink, with a pink stripe forming down the center of her nose.
This happens to Huskies during the winter season.
Although I have read online that even Huskies in warm climates get snow nose also, even thought it was thought to only happen during cold winter months.
As far as I have read, the exact reason for snow nose is still unknown.
It is simply a loss of pigment in their noses (mostly) during winter season.
Posing no health risk at all........just sort of.....happens!
Siberian Huskies are not the only breed that get snow nose.
Bernese Mountain Dogs, Labradors, Golden Retrievers and a few other breeds get it to.
Also, not ALL Huskies get it during winter.......in my girls case, Mika gets it, Lexus does not. Her nose is still black as ever.

Some examples of "snow nose"
(not my dogs in these last 2 pics)
Some Huskies snow nose is much more
prominent than Mika's.
