Tagged: this week in famous dogs of celebrity mass murderers.
Hmm, let's see...I like different music, Mexican food, some people, Jolly Ranchers, shoes, cheese, some books and TV shows and blogs, cats, most trees, oatmeal raisin cookies, and Art…but not necessarily in that order…or exclusively.
For whatever reason, I was reading up on the wikipedia entry on the German Shepard breed of dog (my most favorite dog) when I was drawn to a post about Adolf Hitler’s dog, Blondi (lol, of course it was named something vaguely Aryan). In the article, I noticed this passage…
During the course of April 29, 1945, Hitler learned of the death of his ally Benito Mussolini who had been executed by Italian partisans. This along with the fact the Soviet Army was closing in on his location, led Hitler to strengthen his resolve not to allow himself or his wife to be captured. That afternoon, Hitler expressed doubts about the cyanide capsules he had received through Heinrich Himmler's SS. To verify the capsules' potency, Hitler ordered Dr. Werner Haase to test them on his dog Blondi, and the dog died as a result. Hitler became completely inconsolable.
