I belong to three smooth miniature dachshunds: Rufus, Emily and Lily and we call Southern California home.

My dachsie trio melt my heart daily and are among my absolute favorite beings to photograph.  Please feel free to leave comments and share with other doxie enthusiasts.

I’m like a proud parent with a wallet full of pictures of his children, eager to share them with whomever is available.

Thanks for visiting.

    Hi Johnny and Rufus, I came across your wonderful blog and thought this project I am working on with the artist Bennett Miller may be of interest.

    If you are ever in the UK, the UK premiere of the Dachshund UN is thing place on the 31st March 2012 in Birmingham, UK and promises to be a rather unique experience, please do pass this info on to any other dachshund enthusiasts!

    Best wishes

    Hi Johnny and Rufus,

    My name is Emily and I write the blog The Wiener Takes It All about my dachshund Mortimer. I’m getting in touch because I am setting up a website that features dog bloggers, great dog products and places to visit with dogs – I love your blog and photography, and was hoping to find out if you would mind me featuring some of your photos in a post about your site? I would include a link to your site so people can visit you directly too. If you could let me know if this would be ok, I would be really grateful: my email is


    Emily (and Mort)

  10. Hi! I wanted to let you know I have really been enjoying all of your posts. Just curious, have you ever photographed dachshunds in wheels? Its too bad I live so far away because I would love to see you photograph Sophie.

    • Thank you. I have only photographed one at the dog beach years ago. I’ll check the pictures and see if they’re worthy for posting. If you’re ever around the LA area give me a shout. I’d love to photograph Sophie for you. Thanks for following. 🙂
