It's been fun to watch Deke get his "snow nose" this winter. Yellow labs are notorious for losing the pigmentation in their noses during the cold winter months (oh, and it's been cold!). Below are a few shots from this year showing the transition. The black color should come back this spring and summer as the weather warms (hopefully). There certainly wasn't anything wrong with his sniffer. He followed his nose to several downed birds in the bushes.
