Ziggy and Renna

Ziggy and Renna are Christine and James' dogs, respectively. Ziggy is a Cocker Spaniel and Renna a Labrador x German Wirehaired Pointer. Without them we couldn't do any of this, every time we want to try out a new exercise, or go on training ourselves, they're the ones who have to go with us.
