The Nazi Dog

The tombstone, bearing the inscription Giro: ein treuer Begleiter! (Giro: a true companion!) is reported to be the pet dog of Dr Leopold Hoesch, the German ambassador from 1932 until his untimely death in 1936.

The grave stands outside the former German embassy not far from Downing St.
