Both of them are huge dog lovers and they both participated a bit in junior handling competition untill they turned 18.
Anna is Marijana's childhood friend. The two of them met on a dog show and since that moment
they are very close to each other. They both share similar views and they both love nature, horses
and dogs. Anna's NO1 breed is Flat Coated Retriever, and she owned beautiful girl Diva who sadly
passed at the age of 10 back in 2013. Since than, Anna do not own a dog, due to her study
engagements, but she is now co-owner and handler of some of Glamour Shine dogs. Anna takes
huge part in Glamour Shine, as she is constantly helping with socialisation of puppies, dog sitting,
dog training, handling and so on. She is "once in a life time friend" who is really rare to find, so the
only correct way was to give her her favourite dogs in co-ownership. So, since begining of 2015
