In the long pantheon of things dogs get irrationally excited about, mechanized penguins might be one of the best simply because a mechanized penguin behaves pretty much exactly like a real penguin, i.e. it shuffles around, keeping its useless wings plastered to its body. This video, therefore, either shows that dachshunds are especially sympathetic to the shortness of penguins' limbs, or serves as pretty compelling evidence that, if you have a dog, you can totally get away with getting a pet penguin too because the two animals will probably end up being best friends and going on Homeward Bound-style adventures together.
