BERLIN—A dog playing fetch in Germany has found and delivered to its owner a U.S. hand grenade from World War II. Police in the western town of Erkrath said Monday they were called by the dog's 40-year-old owner who stopped walking her pooch when she recognized the "rusty" object it was carrying was a weapon. Police summoned a munitions expert Sunday to identify and defuse the grenade.
Grenades and bombs left over from World War II are still often found in Germany.

Sometimes whole streets in neighborhoods are evacuated so that such devices can be safely defused.

He's a blast-the-door retriever.

Contemplates this story with a Labrador....*throws grenade, dog fetches, throws grenade, dog fetches, throws grenade...boom!*

Not "drop it", not "no, Fido", not "No, Fido, drop it and let's get the heck out of here!", But "put it back...what a good boy. I'm so glad you still have a head. Let's go eat some real steel, sweet baby."

That is the dog mentioned when speaking of mans best friend. My cat would have pulled the pin trying to throw it around the yard.

The link works. You just have to pull the pin.

More "funny" animal news?

There was a Scottish TV show called "Monarch of the Glen" where the elderly laird had tried for years to train his dog to fetch, with the usual results: cocked head, dog saying, "Huh?" The eccentric laird later tries to dynamite a gar that has been ravaging his trout in the lake. Guess what the dog finally decides to fetch?...
