Barkingdog, sorry we posted at the same time and I didn't see yours earlier. Yes they are a good couple, Nikki does have a very boyish face and very thick for lack of a better word. Lupa has a soft face. Goldfields commented about Nikki's look when he was just a puppy and I couldn't really see it then, but boy I do now!
Koteburo, I hear you about the snow in Calgary. I lived there many years ago, but not for long! Hope things are calming down a bit for you these days, I haven't heard back from my friend about your pup issues - sorry.
