puppies born in a lab…just as cute as the regulars

Cornell University researchers waited a bit to announce the success story. Klondike, a beagle-Labrador retriever mix, is now 9 months old. The scientists likely wanted to make sure that the puppy developed normally, without any major health problems.

So far so good. From what I’ve seen, Klondike is extremely playful, energetic and curious. In other words, he appears to be a typical puppy.

His beagle mother was fertilized using artificial insemination. The resulting embryos were collected and frozen until Klondike’s surrogate mother, another beagle, was ready to receive the embryo.
