Drippy Nose

My theory is it's condensation. I know mine get drips, too. Prancer frequently leaves 2-3" diameter nose spots on beds or chairs. It's not saliva and I don't think it's snot, either.

Jack is a drippy nose boy too. Jilly never so far. Jack does it when he is worried, when he is happy ... basically whenever.

Since the day I got Alan, almost 7 years ago, he has had a drippy nose most of the time. When it drips, it drips! What causes this?

 

 

Cody has a major drippy nose and drools, what it means to me is------no more walking in my bare feet, yuck!!!!!!

Medically? It means his nasolacrimal duct is working properly!

 

Dogs can't cry, but they *do* produce tears; the nasolacrimal duct just routes them away from the eye and down the nose (this is according to Whistler's opthamologist).

I like my idea of condensation better than this nasolacrimal duct thing. I like to think that just as an air conditioner creates condensation as it's cooling a room, so dose my dog's nose as it's cooling him down.

 

:lol

 

But, I guess I'll have to go with science on this one.....too bad.

Mine drip all the time too. The only time it's a problem is when I'm going to bed. Aruba sleeps at the head end and usually has her head on my side before I tell her to move over. It is a shock when you lay down on a cold wet spot about the size of a salad plate. :blink: Missy sleeps at the foot and since I'm only 5 ft, that end of the bed isn't on my radar.

Gracie Mae's snout drips all the time too... Laminate floors stay clean and spotless only a few moments after I clean them before she drips on them and makes spots. Oh well, like water sploshes by her water dish, it comes with the territory of having her in my life. No problemo... What does freak me out is when her nose is cold and she surprises me with a poke... Instant Giggle City! :lol
