Newly discovered documents have revealed a bizarre footnote to the history of the Second World War: a Finnish mutt whose imitation of the Hitler salute enraged the Nazis so deeply that they started an obsessive campaign against the dog's owner.

Yes, I can just picture Hitler and the Nazi high command sitting around in 1941 talking about this dog...

Hermann Göring: Mein furher, the plans for Operation Barbarossa are ready. The Soviets will be crushed...

Adolf Hitler: Enough about the damn Soviets already! What about that infernal Finnish mutt... He's really damaging my self-image. Just to think what those conniving Finns can come up with.

Joseph Goebbels: Mein furher, the plan to eliminate the mutt "Jackie" has failed again... Our agents were outwitted by that devious canine when we tried to eliminate him outside a Finnish sauna.

Adolf Hitler: Nein nein nein!!! Triple our efforts!! Get Eichmann and Klaus Barbie on this immediately!


Cut to scene of the dog impressing a laughing crowd of Finns with his Hitler salute...

Seems to me that any dog that responds to "gimme paw" would fit the bill.

News, Nazis Obsessed Over Hitler-Mocking Dog

Well.....the Nazis were not the only political movement devoid of a sense of humor. Although, this lack of humor is most normally found in the religious.
