Re: snow nose is it genetic?

Morgan gets splotches of snow nose. She gets a few days on chapstick with SPF 50 when I notice she has it.

I'll go there - lol - just becuase Morgan is a gold sable. She looks like a washed out black & tan saddle back in pictures. You'd have to closely examine her examine her tri-color banded fur (or pick it out of your coffee cup)
