a town long on short dogs
Do you like dachshunds? Do you really like them? How about living around scads of them in a town famed for being the source of the low-slung breed? Then get yourself over to Gergweis, Germany. Gergweis is a little town a ways up from Salzburg which was for years famed as the dachshund world capital, though I notice its current Wikipedia page (in German) doesn't say a thing about that. Luckily for us, British Pathé made a short film about the town and its dogs in 1957, using plenty of dry Brit humor and a strategically placed cat (to whom no harm comes, just so you know). Go spend a minute in the land of dachshunds.
