The Unremitting Failure blog is reporting that, along with his German Shepherd Blondi, “Hitler had another dog, a dog shadowed in secrecy, legend, gossip, and innuendo. This dog was Burli the Scotch terrier. Given to Hitler by Martin Bormann, Burli stayed well away from the Albert Speer-designed spotlights of celebrity fascism. In fact, the only reference to him we’ve ever run across is in The Hitler Book, which distills the details of the interrogations of two of Hitler’s underlings conducted by the Soviets following the war.”
The Scottish Terrier and Dog News remains deeply sceptical, not only about Burli but also about Eva Braun’s alleged Scotties.
Update: Scottie News doesn’t know what we were thinking, as documentary evidence of Eva Braun’s Scottish Terriers, Negus and Stasi, abounds. `
There are further rumours about Eva having a third Scottie and also that the dogs were given to her by her Fuhrer fiance. It’s interesting too that one of them was called Stasi.
