Cuteness Alert!

Meet Snuppy, the cloned Afghan hound puppy. Snuppy stands for Seoul National University puppy.

It's Snuppy! It's Snuppy!

"Will I be able to clone my pet dog?

Not yet, and perhaps not for many years to come. Snuppy, as the Korean researchers named their clone (for Seoul National University puppy), was the only puppy to be born out of 123 cloned cells that were transplanted to surrogate female dogs. It's still an arduous process, and one that's not likely to be very successful without further refinements."
