More signs that IT IS THE FUTURE NOW: science just created a fluorescent puppy. They call it "Ruppy," and it glows red under UV light.

A team led by Byeong-Chun Lee of Seoul National University in South Korea created the dogs by cloning fibroblast cells that express a red fluorescent gene produced by sea anemones.

It reminds me a little of that Scary Go Round comic where Tim created glow-in-the-dark ducks so that late shift employees could finally enjoy the duck-feeding pleasures available to day workers.

Also: Let's not forget glow-in-the-dark cats, rabbits, and pigs were there first.
