I took this photo at Langebaan, West Coast, (a beautiful beach in South Africa) during our holiday in March 2011.
Isn’t he cute? Dachshunds have short legs and long bodies, which has given rise to the nickname, “sausage dog”, or in Afrikaans, “worshond.” The correct name for the breed is “dachshund.”

Langebaan is an idyllic little seaside town on the South African West Coast. It is located at the edge of the tranquil Langebaan lagoon, just over 120kms North of Cape Town. The seasons on the West Coast are hard and dramatic – but that’s part of their charm. The jewel of the West Coast towns, Langebaan, will leave you with memories of startling blue sea, acres of spring flowers and the enticing smell of fish braai’s.

    I see you’ve captured a wild, African animal! This little doggie looks just like our wiener dog, Libby, short for Liebchen.
    I love the space around her in this shot, as he/she looks out to sea. Must be contemplating the meaning of life! LOL! Terrific image!
    Cordially, Ellen (waddleudo)

  • Smile!…. a wild, African animal !
    Thanks Ellen, glad you enjoyed my photo. Wonderful comment, much appreciated!
