Heil Hound: Nazis dogged by Hitler-mocking mutt

The Associated Press

The Nazis started an investigation against the dog's owner, a 41-year-old wholesale merchant in Finland. In the middle of World War II, the Foreign Office in Berlin commanded its diplomats in the Nazi-friendly Nordic country to gather evidence against the Hitler-saluting hound and forged plans to destroy the dog owner's existence.

Yeah, I read this online yesterday and wondered why the Nazis didn't co-opt the dog for use as publicity instead? Germans love dogs.

This is pretty ironic given that skinhead in Berlin a couple of years ago who taught his dog to do that and ended up doing time because of it.
