Toes and nail color

I was noticing that some of our Ruby's toes are pink and some are black. Some of her nails are white, some black, and some half pink and half black.

Otherwise she has strong black pigment in her nose and eyelids.

Do others have this too? Does it stay this way? Is it a sign of something?

Raffy's toes are the same way. They were mostly all pink when we got him, and most have turned black or mostly black. The same with his black and white nails. They are nearly all black now, and started out white. I don't think there's anything wrong though, just part of how Havanese change colors, likely.

Molly has nails that are clear, solid black, and an in between color. Perfectly normal. I so wish her nails were all clear as the black ones scare me when trying to cut them. Everyone says to cut the clear ones first, then take off the same amount on the black. So far, so good.

It's normal! All of Kodi and Pixel's paw pads are black, but they both have some pink claws on their white feet. Panda has one foot with a stripe of pink pigment across one paw pad. It's all good.

Scout's pads are all black with white nails. Truffles pads were all dark chocolate with one little pad that was pink until recently. Now all her pads are dark chocolate. Her nails are mostly chocolate, but a few are white.

There are probably almost as many variations as there are puppies. The only time I've seen it mean anything is with a cream puppy. The more black on the pads a cream puppy has, the faster the pigment comes in on the face.
