First Dog Cloned

Scientists for the first time have cloned a dog. But don't count on a better world populated by identical and resourceful Lassies just yet.

That's because the dog duplicated by
South Korea's cloning pioneer, Hwang Woo-suk, is an Afghan hound, a resplendent supermodel in a world of mutts, but ranked by dog trainers as the least companionable and most indifferent among the hundreds of canine breeds.

There is a really bad joke floating through the cosmosphere over this, but I'm not going to make it. Just going to get some cole slaw.

Look, there's nothing new in this story. Somebody cloned a dog a long time ago...
