The Irony

When Scottish scientists successfully cloned Dolly the sheep, some sick individuals joked that the scientific breakthrough was to the delight of "lonely" farmers all over the UK.

Having never been to the UK and not knowing any lonely farmers personally, I don't fully appreciate or understand the joke, but it sure sounds morbid and twisted. So my pledge to you is that I will never again blog about lonely farmers and their sheep in the same post.

Ah! The irony continues. Of all places in the world, my country of origin Korea is home to the first cloned dog ever. Meet Snupy.

I still tell people that I am the first Korean ever to get a dog from the pound, as opposed to by the pound.

That stupid joke never gets old.

The dog does look a little.... different? It just seems kinda wrong and twisted. What kind of dog is that anyways?

I think the massive paws are because it is going to be very big one day. All big-dog puppies have paws like that.

What gets me is these dogs are being created so people can experiment on them. I am not against medical research, but it makes me very sad to think a dog's life will be nothing but purposely inflicted diseases, surgeries, symptoms, being studied, etc. Just very sad.

But David, your "by the pound" joke made me spit club soda. :)

Yeah, doing research with animals saddens me too.
