Dear 100 Hour Board,
Why do dogs have cold noses?
- Curious Mutt

A: Dear Curious Mutt,

First off, if you're going to be curious, I would recommend being a monkey, it's much cooler. You may have noticed that dogs are constantly licking their noses to keep them moist. Because a dog's nose is moist, it is constantly being cooled by evaporation. That, and your dog just had his nose in a snow drift.

A: Dear Curious Mutt,

You are not alone in this wondering. Kathy, a 12 year old, was also perplexed by this problem. (Mind you it is taking a lot of effort to pass by all the "same league as a 12 year old" comments) Go to for the answer she go.
