pink nosed yellow labs

not being a labman..... I was talking to someone today about her yellow lab.  It has a pink nose.

She seems to recall that it has a particular name (for the combo of yellow lab/pink nose) - any clues?

Who nose ????

No seriously, I have never heard of a name for the combination.
I was told that a yellow lab with pink nose/roof of mouth was a dominant yellow and those with black nose and black bars on the roof of their mouth were carrying black genes.

No idea whether they were talking sense or not.

apparently, so I've been informed, is that they are called 'Snow-nosed' or 'Winter-nosed'.

They are supposed to change with the seasons... although some lack full pigment and stay 'pink'.

I was intrigued to also discover that 'yellow' labs were described as GOLD before the KC decided Gold was not a colour! (?) so called them 'Yellow' and they ranged from Gold - through butterscotch - to the white that became fashionable in the show world.

Every day's a school day eh!  LOL

There is several readings on this, there is something called the Dudley Lab (pale eye rims) Confused  Also mating choc labs to yellow who carry choc run a high risk of pale pigmention.as you will know and is some what frowned upon by some  Confused

Yes, I've always known of them as Dudleys.  It's a mis-mark and wouldn't be acceptable for show labs. They should have pigmented noses and eye rims.

Hillmouse - yellows only carry the yellow gene and never black.  Technically something like Ee.  Whereas blacks (being the dominant colour) can carry yellow.

I remembered being told that as soon as I read your post.
The reason being a friend left his yellow bitch to be mated with a top yellow dog many years ago. He was somewhat annoyed when she had  a mixed litter of black and yellow puppies suggesting skulduggery and dark deeds had taken place.
He explained it was as near as impossible to get anything other than yellow from two yellows due to the double recessive genes.

Both my yellows have pink noses though.

Don't suppose that it matters whether their noses are blue if they do the job you want them to do?!!!  Very Happy

I suppose it would....it'll clash terribly with with his tweed suit  Laughing

I have never seen a black lab with a pink nose. Do they exist???

Blue would go well with my lightweight suit. Not too good with the standard issue one though.

I had a springer with a half pink half brown nose, oh and one brown side one white side to his face, gus      nice but manic dog

Yes, you are right in that yellow to yellow can only produce yellow. I understand that the KC are now refusing to register litters where there are other colours!

Regards, John

I have seen a few pickers up with brown noses.
There is a special name for them as well.

But I think thats another topic altogether. Laughing  Laughing  Laughing
