Fetch . . . No NOT That!
What do you do when your dog fetches a live hand grenade?
This is exactly what a women in Berlin had to figure out when her dog brought back a trophy from WWII. The grenade, a US relic, was retrieved while the woman was out walking her dog.
The happy dog trotted to its 40 year-old owner with the grenade in its mouth. Unfortunately, the woman was not as pleased with the dogs treasure as perhaps the dog was expecting. She regonized that the object was most likely a hand grenade.
What was her reaction?
She ordered the dog to take the grenade back by the stream and drop it. Fortunately for all concerned the dog obediently obliged.
Local authorities were able to diffuse the live grenade without casualty.
It pays to have an obedient dog when you live in an old war zone!
