When you combine ruby red with beagle puppies, you get a dog named "Ruppy." Four of them, to be exact.
Scientists in South Korea have, apparently, successfully added a red fluorescent gene into cloned beagle puppies that makes them glow red under ultraviolet light.
The purpose was not to make a dog that you can avoid tripping over in the dark, but simply to prove that it could be done.
That sound you just heard was mad scientists everywhere, cackling.
THINGS YOUR DOG REGRETS SNIFFING
New Jersey. Just like the rest of us.
The backside of that pit bull with the personal space issues.
The pilot light.
That funny looking steam hole in the ground at Yellowstone.
Whatever that thing was under the covers after Mexican Buffet Night.
The roses in the garden. The ones infested with the beehive.
Your laundry. It's so utterly, disgustingly, CLEAN.
