Dog Dogs of the Titanic: a Dozen Aboard, Three Survived

April 15, 2012, marks the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, the ship touted as unsinkable, during her maiden voyage from Southampton, England, en route to New York. Much research has been done on the passengers, crew, and the ship itself over the years. But little has been reported about one group of passengers -- the dogs of the Titanic. Many think of their pets as part of the family, and it's evident that that sentiment was as true 100 years ago as it is today.

The story about the mother cat taking her kittens off reminds me of the old saying about rats deserting a sinking ship. Although I am sure she would be disgusted in being compared to a rat. Maybe the accomendations just weren't to her liking. Or maybe she always intended to get off at Southampton to visit family .

Wow, very surprised people could insure their dogs like property 100 years ago.
