Who Wants a Ruppy for Christmas…

Now aren’t these puppies cute?  All four of them are named Ruppy (Ruby + Puppy = Ruppy)  Now first off, why do they all have the same name and second, Ruppy?  Come on that’s kind of lame, don’t you think?

Aw Pretty Puppies (or Ruppies)

Well these are no ordinary puppies… they glow in the dark!  Scientists in South Korea have “engineered” these cloned puppies by placing a gene in their DNA to have them glow red under ultra violet light.  You can even see in the picture that their toe nails and their underbellies show red without the light.  This comes as a scientific break through in gene manipulation.  This may lead to being able to cure disease in humans.

Such a lame name...

Still they couldn’t come up with a better name then Ruppy?
