Pink Spots

For the past three months my 2 year old dog has been getting these tiny pink spots on her lips or on the skin between her lips and nose.  They seem not to bother her and I can touch them and she seems like they are painless.  They come and go in different spots.  Does anyone know what this is?

I have a 2yr old dog and for the last week or so her lips have gotten these tiny pink spots too.  She seems fine- and lets me touch them. She's eating good. I'm looking for the same answer.

maybe it could be an allergy to something! like food etc .

what are you both feeding your dogs?

Is your dog itchy or rubbing the face?

The bowl thing Karla mentioned could be an issue. I'm not really sure about dogs, but I know cats can get feline acne from eating (and drinking) out of plastic bowls. For cats prone to this, they usually recommend stainless steel/metal or ceramic bowls.
