Dachshunds: The New Trend in Home Decor?

I suspect I am going to be accused of trying to initiate this trend for my own benefit. After all, I did turn some old Ikea mirrors into decorative omages to my own dachshund for my entryway (see here); however, I have noticed a growing number of chic dachshund-related home accessories on the market. Could dachshunds becoming a part of the continuing trend of animals in home decor?

Happy Hot Dog Clock (from Naked Decor):
Happy Hot Dog Pillow (also from Naked Decor):

Dachshund Lamp (from Willow):

What I think is most notable about all of these items is their very explicit references to pop art. Perhaps they all took their cue from Andy Warhol's Portrait of Maurice?

In addition to being an nice change of pace from the organic or mid century styles employed in most "animal decor" recently, I think drawing upon inspiration from pop art is particularly appropriate for the subject matter. After all, a core tenant of the movement was the elevation of the everyday to the status of art. Pop art is also typically associated with an irreverence that befits the dachshund's personality and bearing. Using dachshund imagery in home decor similarly takes any space down a notch and imbues it with an often much needed dose of humor.
