butter wouldn’t melt! una, the larger and darker of the two at the front of this image, is the 2 1/2 year old daughter of rosa behind her. my perfect little miniature smooth-hair dachshunds. i took several photos of them this day but these two images i felt really captured a mood. i really love how the shadows fall across the same side of each of their faces. my floorboards look pretty nice too:-)

    Both Una and Rosa look lovely in this photo Gary. What did you say to catch their attention? Or was it the rattle of a Schmacko packet?!!!

  • i’d love to say that i had trained them to sit for the camera but no. thanks for your compliment jenny, always appreciated:-)

    Congrats and well deserved. Love it.:)

  • thank you megs – much appreciated:-) they really are carbon copies of each other. it amazes me how i’ll stumble across them in the garden or on the verandah and they are sitting, or standing, or lying in exactly the same way – right down to how their paws and ears are positioned:-) it would be cruel to ever separate them from each other!
