    It’s probably a bit needy to place a comment on my own post, but I couldn’t help but notice the closing paragraph in the article:

    Why did they choose an Afghan to clone? “Having a distinctive dog means that if we’d [ended up with] a dachshund we’d know that something funny had happened,” says Schatten.

    That’s too funny!
