Having just lost my dog that I had in my life for almost 16 years, this article to me is so sweet. Blankets and food. How wonderful that they showed their admiration and love for these animals even after death. No laughing please...

What? Who's to say they weren't killed and mummified believing they'll guard their masters in their afterlife?

Wow, what a great story. It looks like a little fox, as opposed to dog, which is what the American Chihuahua is believed to have originated from. They're even breeding Chihuahua's in Cali. with fox breeds, in order to get longer ears. Chihuahua's also like to eat insects, fruits and vegetables, more so than any other breed of "dog," and this is also indicative of the fox family.

At least we see that people from ancient past were more advanced than us about animal treatment,today we see so violence to the animals that I ask to myself why that people who treats so badly the animals have to live in this world?
