Dachshund font

It goes without saying that Dachshunds tend to be a rather clever dog, but who could have ever imagined that they were capable of inspiring a new way of putting pen to paper?

Apparently, the Austrian font designers over at Langustefonts couldn’t help but devise an alphabet fashioned entirely out of the Dachshund’s unique body shape — and some playful piles of poop.

For about $50, you can purchase “Doggy,” which its creators describe as “a rather difficult to read font-family, rendering words as dogs. Depending on the length of a word, the dog respectively gets longer or shorter.”

“After the great success of the initial Dachshund style,” the designers have created three additional critter fonts from a duck, a Poodle and a Chihuahua.

And that’s, ahem, the long and short of it.
