Never mind the mildly ill-conceived notion of mailing a letter to a dog - at all, EVER - no matter what the content much less a Pekingese to do military service. While it was more than likely the journalist who reported this story first putting their own brand of humour on the story, it's still funny to note that according to this report, the German army wrote a letter to a dog DEMANDING military service.
There was no time to politely request. Especially in these troubled times when Pekingese dogs are in short supply in the German army and not many people know that Pekingese dogs are actually brilliant Arabic translators.
