Minolta x 300
beards, dachshounds, dog shows, dogs, hair
Looks like a life-long friendship being forged there!
Yes! I think they eloped to Gretna after that!
LOL Is it legal there then?
I think so, as long as the blacksmith does it!
This is so totally adorable! Look at the affection on the dogs face:=} And the amazing thing is that it looks like the same bread of dog, I have, ’Terrier/Shaunezzer" They are such loving pets:=} Gorgoues capture:=}
Thank you for favouriting me Bella! LOL Yes they look totally together… the dog is a Standard Wire haired Dachshund… the humanoid is a Dubliner of the Guinness variety and related to me through drink!! ;-)
She looks so happy, lovely shot
LOl yes she does .. contented even!
LOL Indeed .. an honour .. thank you!
that is a fantastic capture – you don’t see many standard wire-haired dacchies anywere! congratulations on the feature!
Thank you Gary, not so many as the smooths athough i have friends who breed and show them. I actually prefer them of all the varietys. this one was being looked after by my friend while its owner was in the ring.
we breed the mini-wires (and mini-smooths) and i have to agree, i love the wires a tad more!
I like them all but the wires have something that appeals to me. My friends in Dublin have one that lives with the Afghans .. she rules the roost!
i think the wires are the result of introducing a terrier centuries ago back in germany – they have a personality very different from the smooths and longs!
Yeah probably used for Badger and Fox hunting, going to ground, ( not into blood sports btw)
yeah, the standards were bred for badgers (hence the name ‘dachs’) and the minis were bred for rabbit, hare etc., fabulous dogs!
They are great dogs!
Steve – I have one of these as well!! Although she was a reject because she had a pathetic coat!! Soulmates with the Afghan though!!Px
Do you mean the one with glasses or the one with out???………..Only kiddin’lol. They are great wee dogs very easy going way with them.
Thank you Polly. Steve X
