this portrays one of our granddaughters, 10 year old Emma,with her favourite labrador pup.

The Eskimo kiss , rubbing noses or more correctly the Kunik,is a traditional Inuit way of communicating with a loved one!
It is also know to the Maori of New Zealand, to the Hawaiians and to the Mongolians of the Gobi desert.
It is especially useful in freezing weather where the chance of lips being frozen together might take place.!! TRY IT!!
