Happy Birthday, Snuppy! And, yes, that is Snuppy, not Snoopy. The world’s first cloned dog was conceived in South Korea by a team of scientists using skin cells from a black Afghan hound named Tai.


Since his birth, on this day in 2005, Snuppy has become a father himself, by artificially inseminating two female clones. More bizarrely, a set of cloned sniffer dogs, all named Toppy, now help patrol South Korea's airports.

Let's drink to all those dogs today with a bright green Atomic Dog.
