The Puppy Mummy

Egyptians were known to preserve cats, birds and even crocodiles. Now researchers have found a mummified puppy at the feet of a human mummy. The dog has been named "Hapi-Puppy" after an inscription on the tomb, which read "Hapi-Men." Not exactly as catchy as King Tut, but at 2,300 years old, this is one rare dog.
