Rin Tin Tin

September 10, 1918, is the estimated date of birth for Rin Tin Tin, one of a litter of shell-shocked puppies found by an American serviceman in a bombed-out kennel in Lorraine, less than two months before the end of World War I. The dog went on to become the lead actor in a number of very popular films, and one of the great celebrities of his age.

    i always wondered why people put such easy teasers at the end of their stories to prove this is a live person and not a spam bot as i just spent the day at my local driver license bureau. great story and what a good dog. i cannot for the life of me understand how someone can callously shoot someone’s pet. this reminds of a story i was heard from an elderly gentleman who worked in German government as a low level civil servant during the times of Hitler. he has since passed on, sad tale as he lost all 4 of his sons on the eastern front fighting the Russians. he remembered hearing a conversation of one of the workers, a friend at lunch one day, of an interview his son had had with a local party official. his son was their pride and joy, a model citizen and Hitler Youth member. the meeting was a first get to know you meeting as this young man was going into in army, 1937, before the world war started. the military recruiter and local nazi official wanted to know if he thought he would be interested in a special outfit that considered elite. the young man was a virtual model of german manhood, which i suspect is why they wanted him, tall, athletic, intelligent, with very good family connections. i learned among the questions they asked was had you ever hurt small animals? shocked, he asked why. the interview was immediately over. sad, he still enlisted and fought in North Africa where he was taken prisoner by the English and later returned home to a very happy father. his other family members and his mother had died in allied air raids of their city. in my years in sales i have met many Jews as well who sometimes would take me into their confidence as they told me what happened in the camps. i don’t care what the true numbers of death were there if just one person died in that manner it was wrong and those who did this are damned for all eternity. just following orders is the excuse of a heartless creature who no longer is human, but a demon in human form. they may not get their just desserts here but one day they will be called to answer for their crimes before the Almighty Judge of the Universe. this is the one true thing i know.
