Bad, bad dog II

wolfenstein.jpgLast year Slate's Clara Jeffery's wondered Can a Dog Be Racist? Today's Times World Briefing answers her question, sort of:

GERMANY: ADOLF, NEIN! A man who taught his dog to raise its right paw in a Hitler salute will not be prosecuted for the pet's trick but he faces other charges of violating the country's anti-Nazi laws, prosecutors in Berlin said. Germany has strict laws banning Nazi symbols, slogans and salutes. The dog, a German shepherd crossbreed named Adolf, is said to have performed the trick at its master's request "Adolf sit. Give me the salute." in front of policemen. The man, identified only as Roland T., is accused of wearing a T-shirt with Hitler's picture and shouting "Heil Hitler!" on various occasions. If convicted, Adolf's owner faces three years in jail.

Roland T.'s favorite movie? Samuel Fuller's White Dog
