Default Brown Nose?

Some time last winter, I posted about Puppy having a brown nose and we got inconclusive results in our discussion. Whenever I mention it to my vet, they've always said its nothing a well. Over the summer, pup got her nice black nose back. But, in the last month, I'm noticing them turn brown again. It bothers me a lot since I don't see other dogs have it. In worried its the weather, allergies, or SOMETHING. What might it be?

Some guesses I have:

Using nose to nudge grass and try to bury pee
Plastic food dispensing toys

Does it come off if you try to wash it with a cloth and water? Is it dry?

If it's only in the winter, I'd suspect dry air drying out the dogs nose perhaps.

Very cute dog btw

It's her skin... I doubt it'll come off with water. Does dry air make their noses brown !? What can I do to help? Humidifier maybe? Something in their diet?

snow nose, and the plastic treat dispenser probably adds to it. I would prick a gelcap of vitamin E and dab it on there if it looks cracked or irritated, otherwise I don't think it is anything to be concerned with.

It didn't look like snow nose past inter but this year the pattern is more recognizable. Thanks for the links!!

I am going to have to get a picture of Kiya's nose, it also is brown. Our house is not dry, I actually have a moisture issue. She doesn't play with anything other than a ball on the rare occassion.

Plastic food or water bowls? If so, I would recommend stainless.
