Standard Dachshunds at Goodwood House


Bridey was my first standard smooth dachshund. 
She taught me most everything
I know about dachshunds!

Thank you Bridey! 


L to R: Yours Truly, Bridey, Reddy, Lily and Nicole.  The 3 dogs celebrate their birthday on April 26.


Yours truly picks blackberries and Bridey plays in the creek.....



Bridey had her portrait painted by Gwenn Seemel.


Bridey still remembers how to stack!  (3 1/2 years old)

Bridey is exceptionally gamey.  She loves to tunnel the rats and to chase the bunnies. 
She even voices on fur and hoof.  Go Bridey!!!
