RENEE MONTAGNE, Host:
A very old sea dog goes on display today at one of England's premier dog shows. Hatch is the nickname given the mongrel who sailed aboard King Henry VIII's flagship, the Mary Rose. It sank back in the 16th century. When the ship was raised, the dog's skeleton was found in near perfect condition. And Hatch must've done an excellent job going after rats. Only parts of their skeletons were found. It's MORNING EDITION.
