To answer the original question, while some people may say it is "normal", it is not supposed to happen. Havanese are supposed to maintain their black pigment on their noses (and eyerims, lips and pads). Yes, it does happen sometimes, but it is something that a breeder hopes to avoid in their breeding program. Most good breeders will remove a dog from their breeding program if the pigment fades (or never fully comes in).
It does not mean anything is wrong with the dog though. They just have weaker pigment and it is no big deal at all.
