At last, it's happening: the United Nations Human Rights Council is being reformed - with sausage dogs.

Artist Bennett Miller, reports The Age, is set to recreate the international organisation using 120 dachshunds herded together and plonked inside a scale model of Geneva's Hall of Nations.

The miniature UN, which will be on display at the Melbourne Museum, will be the temporary home to dachshund delegates from around the world.

Well, actually, the vast majority will be from the Dachshund Club of Victoria, but they will - in all of their short and stumpy splendor - be representative of the many nationalities which make up the UN.

Apart from being small and cute, Bennett said he chose to work with dachshunds on this project because they "are a good fit for the UN and for people. They have their own racial diversity - black, brown, red. Also, even though they're restricted in their movement, they are quite determined and proud."

Though if dog owner Melissa Lowenry is right, the model UN could end up being just like the real thing: "Dachshunds are quite snappy, there could be some argy-bargy," she said.

Folklaw is secretly hoping that each little sausage dog diplomat gets its very own national costume.

A sausage dog in lederhosen - what more do we need?
