Our Smooth Dachshunds


Lulu - "Manakoora Lou-Hie-Hie at Mowbray"
aged 4 Years

Our love affair with Miniature Smooths started with a beautiful bitch Champion Manakoora Mai-Tai and we were very lucky to be able to have one of her lovely daughters, Manakoora Lou-Hie-Hie at Mowbray, a really lovely girl to live with.  Now a Great-Great-Grandmother and still ruling the household.

Many show wins, numerous Best of Breeds, one Reserve CC and attained her Stud Book Number at a very young age.

The most devoted mother to her pups.

A huge thank you to Mrs Victoria Watkinson for allowing us to purchase such a very special girl.
