Bad dog...Bad, BAD dog!

And to think I used to get mad at my last Shepherd, Oliver, for chasing and grabbing other people's frisbees...

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.

  2. How do you say,
    "Holy Crap is that a Freakin' GRENADE?" in German?
    There's got to be some 'ach du leiber' involved.
    (I realize thats spelled wrong, too lazy to research, sorry)
