"Sit Fido! Roll over Fido! Salute the Fuhrer Fido!"

Suppose that you discovered that a brain-damaged pensioner had taught his dog how to perform a Nazi salute on cue. You might, like me, think this somewhat comic, and hardly worthy of intervention by the law.

That, however, is what happened in Germany, with the owner "charged with displaying symbols of a banned organization". I am *not* making this up..

The outcome of that particular brush with the law is not made clear in the item in Der Spiegel, although the owner has now been jailed for rather more conventional displays of his Nazi sympathies, the dog passed on to an animal shelter and renamed from Adolf (inevitably) to Adi.

I would think that the next owner would have to make a herculean degree of restraint not to test out the mutt's skills.

Maybe the man was an aficianado of Fat Freddy's cat:

Lovely tale C.

Yes, I saw the Pied Piper is doing that thing that he does.

Still, bear in mind that he will never see anything approaching capital 'S' Socialism in his lifetime, and therefore he must be a tad frustrated.
