The Nazis Were Obsessed With a Dog in Finland That Did a Nazi Impression


If you thought that, with over six decades gone by, all the weird stuff the Nazis did has already been uncovered, you were so terribly mistaken. Newly discovered documents reveal that a Finnish dog named Jackie, who could “heil” on command, so rankled the Nazi government that it spent months pursuing ways to punish the dog’s anti-Nazi owner. They even considered destroying his business and sought to bring him to trial, though it fell apart when witnesses of the dog’s amazing feat — which we assume consisted of it raising its paw in the air — refused to testify. Time well spent, Nazis. [AP via HuffPo]
