Cris and Shiro
I finally managed to get Oblivion Cris a canine companion, he's called Shiro (despite not being completely white) because I (and by extension Cris) suck at coming with names, he's available for download on my site. I have to thank sdobson for testing him while I was unable to and bring to light the problems that where occurring with the mod.
Also got my first shot in Skyrim (well technically second, but the first shot is just a close up of my character which I'm saving for something else) uploaded to the Skyrim nexus: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/images/419071/?. And before anyone asks no that character is not the same Cris nor is she her relative, it's a completely new Cris, I'll explain in detail in my next shot.
