Catacombs Full of Dogs?

Finally, an economic stimulus plan for dog breedersThis one is straight from Egypt:

A labyrinth of sacred tunnels packed with the mummified remains of millions of dogs has been excavated under the Egyptian desert.

The catacombs are estimated to contain the remains up to eight million dogs, many of which would have been offered to the gods when they were just hours old....

With the need to mummify so many animals, perhaps thousands per year, it is likely the animals were bred in puppy farms dotted around the ancient capital of Memphis.

Um. They're called puppy mills?

They just need to restart that ol'time religion.

Not much different from breeding them all sick and deformed for the gods of Social Status and Cuteness.
