It's like a brand new nose

Well I feel terrible about this. All these years I thought Shelby's crispy little nose was just her getting to be a senior pooch. Then, a few eels ago is was playing with her and a piece of her nose came off.

Not a huge piece, mind you, but if a piece of my nose that large came off I would be...intrigued. Especially since there was no bleeding and she didn't seem to mind it at all.

Well today I took a soaking wet paper towel, got her nose nice and wet, and gently rubbed off all the nose crisp.

It's like she has a puppy nose again. The other neighbor dogs might think she had "work" done.

Winnie, my pugs have that same problem. the best product for preventing it it Aquaphor by Eucerin. it comes in a tube, is very viscous, and only a small amount is needed. works like a charm, use it weekly, no more crusty nose!!

I always had to upkeep the "barnacles" on my English Bulldogs.

I would really make a good effort to rub
in the Vaseline before Redbud and Doodad would lick their treat.

I think the Aquaphor sound SO much better
for Shelby.

Consider it buying makeup for your only daughter.

Perhaps Botox for those wrinkles?

By "Crispy" - do you mean that when the nose dries out, the skin on a pug's nose area becomes encrusted and should be gently removed, like you did for Shelby? Glad you took care of her and there are some nose-skin softening agents to use on Puggies.

Aquaqhor only lasts forever if kept out of reach of the pug that likes to nab the container, wrestle/chew the lid off and then eat the contents of the container.....

Yes that's what I mean by crispy. Sounds like its pretty common.
