Now it appears that the Tekkel has been elevated to the level of performance art in an installation by Australian artist Bennett Miller. His Dachshund U.N. first appeared at the Melbourne Next Wave Festival back in 2010 where 47 splendid specimens of Jamniki engaged in vigorous debate as they enacted the roles of representatives to the U.N. Commission on Human Rights. The Commission has since reconvened in Sydney, Birmingham and are heading to Toronto for the 2013 World Stage Festival at Harbourfront.
It was mentioned in many quarters that los Perros salchichas were better behaved - the odd accident apart - and frankly made more sense than many of their human counterparts. I have no trouble believing that for a minute!
