It's not all that uncommon for the nose to turn brown. Nothing to be concerned about from the standpoint of health. It won't go back to black, at least not as far as I have ever heard.

Sam, our first cavaliers nose turned brown on the top. We used to say it was where he sniffed so many things :lol:

I dont know how to post a link, but if you go to my thread in the in memorium section you can see the change in colour on his nose in the garden photo.

It's usually a Blenheim or ruby thing ( because the black coated dogs have more pigment genes ?)and refered to as putty nose. Some preople swear it's down to diet, but if so , why of my four Blenheims , all fed the same, do only Monty and Izzy have browny noses ? Monty's is quite brown, but Izzy's has a browny tinge. It does vary slightly with the amount of sunlight, but I can't remember which way.

It's only cosmetic and does no harm.
