Puppy Goo Goo, Fetch Me a Dream!

So they've cloned a dog.

As you can see, it's a flopsy little Afghan ball of hair. His name is Snuppy, which his South Korean daddies derived by crashing "Seoul National University" into "puppy." Cute. (Even cuter, I've learned is that the first cloned cat's name was "CC," as in the duplicating email function. Love it.) So this momentous event had taught me two things: (1) that Afghan puppies are adorable; and (2) that when a news even involving dogs happens, newspapers go nuts with puns.

As proof, here are some headlines of various newspaper articles detailing Snuppy's birth:

And the champion of doggy-style pun headlines:
And if I had written the lede: You can't teach an old dog new tricks, but you can grow a crime against God from one of his ear cells.
