Veterans Day 2011: HEIL HITLER!

We paws on this day to honor our military veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.

This striking Dachshund Hitler image was actually an American postcard circa early to mid-1940s.  History would show that Dachshunds, due to their German association, did not suffer in this country during WWII to the extent that they did in WW1. 

If you are a new reader at The Long and Short of it All, you will want to visit the archives for some absolutely amazing military-inspired Dachshund tales and images:

As regards the post card...the dachshund expresses my sentiments very well! No need to condemn all things German (WWII) just because of Hitler!
