    This is a great photo Gary.You have captured Una’s eyes, face and expression to perfection and the lovely back lighting gives her a real three dimensional look.

    Una is just like my Daisy was. I still miss her and it has been 10 years. A lovely capture.

  • thank you marjorie, she is an absolute darling i have to say. she became a mother for the first time just over 5 weeks ago and has taken to it like the proverbial duck to water. daisy is a lovely name for a dacchie – may keep that one up my sleeve!

    I had to come back and vist Una again. I actually had four Dachshunds over 22 years. Oh my gosh, how I love them. Heidi was the first one in 1978, then Daisy in 1987 and a rescue doxie named Winnie and one that was my daughter’s named Shelby. It is always better to have at least a pair together so they have a playmate. Each one has a story to tell and what a blessing they were in my life. I hope you will be posting more photos of them. :~)

  • they’re wonderful dogs aren’t they! we have beautiful ruby, a mini-wire, rosa and her daughter una. we also had ava, ruby’s daughter, but she has just gone to live up the coast on a farm with her boyfriend. we’re hoping that ruby is 4.5 weeks pregnant! no litters for two and a half years and then hopefully, 2 litters within 3 months:-)

    Love the composition, colour tones and eyes. Has real depth and emotion coming through. Beautiful dog and photo.

  • thank you so much peter, she has the most beautiful temperament and has just become a mother for the first time 7 weeks ago – needless to say, she’s a great mum as well:-)
