    Default So Romeo has a butterfly nose??

    [IMG][/IMG]

    So this is my baby Romeo! He is 4 months old. He is an absolute sweetheart! He is doing GREAT at potty training and already knows several tricks! He knows how to sit, stay, down, roll over, high five, shake, and we are working on BANG!
    I am curious about his nose though. I bought him from a reputable breeder and she said his grandmother had the same kind of nose. She said they called her "Pinky", but her nose eventually filled in at around a year or so. I know this can be a fault for show dogs, but I don't plan on showing him. I know that when they are really young they can have alot of pink on their noses, but usually they go black within several weeks. I did a search on here and saw that this is called a butterfly nose, but I did not read anything about noses changing after a year. I will of course love him regardless, but I am curious.
    Anyone have experience with butterfly noses??

    I don't know much about them; have seen some cavaliers that keep some pink and think it makes them a bit unique! I do think it can continue to fill in with more black...? There are some here who should know!

    Some tris seem to take a long while filling in their noses. But we've never had one that did not do so. A year is not an unreasonable time to do so.

    One slightly off-topic item about developing noses. We received a 3+ year old ruby female a few years ago. She had a brownish nose. In a matter of months, we were able to change her nose color to black by changing her to a raw, fresh meat and vegie diet.

    My family had a border collie with a butterfly nose as well. It did fill in completely, but his took well over year. I don't remember how long, it was definitely filled in by age 3 though.

    Thanks for the replies!! I think it is adorable and I can't imagine him with a black nose after having him for a month but at first I have to admit in the back of my mind I kinda felt like he was not a perfect Cavalier and that the breeder was selling me a flawed pup. I love his little pinky nose now.
