Nazis' Tried To Breed An Army Of Talking Dogs

CRAZZZZY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In his new book Amazing Dogs: A Cabinet of Canine Curiosities, Cardiff University historian Jan Bondeson reveals obscure German periodicals that prove Lex Luthor Adolf Hitler, tried to breed an army of talking dogs.

According to the book, scientists envisioned a day when dogs would serve alongside German troops, and perhaps free up SS officers by guarding concentration camps.

So to unlock all that canine potential, Hitler set up a Tier-Sprechschule (Animal Talking School) near Hanover and recruited "educated dogs" from throughout the country.

Teachers claimed a number of incredible findings. Perhaps most outlandish is the claim by his German masters that he asked to serve in the German army because he disliked the French.

Another mutt barked "Mein Fuhrer" when asked to describe Hitler. And Don, a German pointer, is said to have imitated a human voice to bark, "Hungry! Give me cakes!" in German.

Even Michael Vick Calls This App "Animal Cruelty"

Filed under: Michael VickDogProtectionAnimal Cruelty

dog wars even pisses off michael vick

Finally, a cellphone app that actually makes you barf!

Michael Vick has TEAMED UP with the Humane Society (we know, right?) against an application built to run on Google Inc.'s Android software that glorifies dogfighting.

The app is called "Dog Wars" and lets players feed, water, train and fight their virtual dogs against others.

In a statement posted on the Humane Society's website Vick said:

"I've come to learn the hard way that dogfighting is a dead-end street. Now, I am on the right side of this issue, and I think it's important to send the smart message to kids, and not glorify this form of animal cruelty, even in an Android app."

We never thought we'd say this but - we totally agree with you Michael Vick!

Dog Owning Outlawed In Iran!

Filed under: PolitikSad SadPets

Dog owning illegal in iran

And we thought China's one dog per household law was cruel.

Lawmakers in Tehran have recently proposed a bill in parliament that would criminalize dog ownership, formally enshrining its punishment within the country's Islamic penal code.

What's the reasoning?

The bill warns that that in addition to posing public health hazards, dog ownership "also poses a cultural problem, a blind imitation of the vulgar culture of the West."

Guess they're right…

Once the Ancient Egyptians (we assume that's the vulgar west they're talking about) popularized "companionship" they just couldn't stop making statues of them.

Everyone knows Egypt wouldn't be in this political mess if they just had the common sense to not ever have dogs.

So what's Iran's punishment for taking care of a helpless animal?

The law would see the offending animal confiscated, the leveling of a $100-to-$500 fine on the owner, but leaves the fate of confiscated dogs uncertain.

Think we have a good guess though.

So sad.

Jackass Turned Animal Rights Activist

Filed under: Animal RightsZooElephantsAnimal Cruelty

Steve-o animal activist

This isn't a prank!

You may be surprised that Jackass star Steve-O can be serious about something (anything, really), but he is NOT joking around when it comes to animal rights.

Steve-O's explained were his passion for animals comes from:

“With my history…I’m really sensitive to animal abuse. I graduated from Ringling Brothers Clown College. One of the days, they had the PR people come and give us a lecture about public relations. They said if anyone asks you about animal abuse, you have no opinion. You shut up, fall down. I wouldn’t have otherwise really formulated an opinion. They were so …it occurred to me that something was pretty messed up about it. I never worked on the Ringling Brothers Circus, I worked on another one. But the elephant trainee carried around a baton that had tassels to conceal this gnarly metal hook. I turned into a whistleblower….I have a real soft spot for elephants who are being abused. They walk 30 miles a day. They don’t confine themselves to tiny little quarters in blistering cold weather.”

Steve-O is currently fighting for the release of Lucy the Elephant from the Edmonton City Zoo.
