(Photo courtesy of Widener University)April 14, 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.
