As we near the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic on April 15, enough about the fates of the human passengers! A baby Pomeranian named Lady was one of three dogs to survive the sinking of the Titanic, out of 12 canines on board. Owned by Margaret Hays, Lady survived the sinking because crew members allowed Hays to get in a lifeboat with the blanket-wrapped puppy. "Because they assumed it was a baby, it survived," said J. Joseph Edgette, who produced and curated a new exhibit on the tragedy at Widener University.
