Dachshunds gather in Poland
Organizers of the annual Dachshund March in Poland said dozens of wiener dogs and their human companions participated in this year's event.
The Krakow parade, which marked its 15th year Sunday, featured a dachshund costume contest and competitions for humans creating dachshund-inspired art and literature, the Krakow Post reported Tuesday.
The event's art award went to Agata Stachowicz, who created a pair of dachshund earrings, and writer Witold Witkowski took the literary prize with an ode he composed to dachshunds.
