PetScoop -- South Koreans Clone Glowing Puppies

ruppy.jpg ultravioletclone.jpg

Now humanity is making our very own, glow-in-the-dark fluorescent dogs. South Koreans have cloned four beagles known as Ruppy (Ruby Puppy) containing a fluorescent protein that makes them glow red under ultraviolet light. Apparently they even have a reddish tinge in broad daylight. All in the name of medical research. Via MSN:


Scientists said the creation of the glowing pups shows it will be possible to implant genes related to human diseases into dogs for research purposes.

"They are the world's first transgenic dogs," Professor Lee Byeong-Chun who leads the Seoul National University (SNU) team told AFP.

"This means we'll be able to switch genes in dogs for genes related to human diseases such as Parkinson's Disease for research," he said, adding that dogs suffer from 224 illnesses that also afflict humans.

What do you think--do the ends justify the means? Is humanity a species run amok?

National Association of Professional Pet Sitters Preparedness Guide For Pet Owners

firepet.jpg

Each year, two to three million of us suffer as the result of disasters, and as was painfully apparent during Katrina, our pets do too. After a natural disaster everyone is pretty much on their own, at least for the first few days, as we have discussed in a prior disaster preparation post.

The National Association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS) has created NAPPS Disaster Preparedness Guide For Pet Owners to read and download, so animal owners can be prepared for man-made or natural catastrophes.

The operative word here is prepared. Preparation is key to surviving a disaster, as well as succeeding in any endeavor, as Amanda Ripley so aptly explains in her must-read guide The Unthinkable: Who Survives When Disaster Strikes - and Why.

Retractable 360 Degree Cable Tie Out Gives Your Dog Room to Roam

cabletieout.jpg

If you have to tie out your dog in the yard occasionally, this tie out is the way to go. Even the most die-hard tangler can stay tangle-free with this Retractable Cable Tie Out. Its coated-steel cable moves all around with your dog, due to its 360° rotating steel spool.

It has 20 feet of cable, which gives your dog up to 1,256 sq ft of safe roaming area, and is wrapped with reflective strip for low-light visibility. No more tripping over the cable or getting it caught in the lawn mower.

For best results position the tie out in an area that is relatively flat and free of obstacles. Don't forget to supervise your dog when on a backyard cable.

D.A.P. Dog Appeasing Pheromone Electric Diffuser and Spray

DAPdiff.jpg

The Super Cool Pets staff has received samples of the D.A.P. Dog Appeasing Pheromone Electric Diffuser and D.A.P. Dog Appeasing Pheromone Spray for review.

424spray.jpg

D.A.P. Dog Appeasing Pheromone reduces or even prevents stress-related behavior, say during thunderstorms, fireworks, visits to the vet, puppy anxiety or moving to a new home.

Female dogs secrete pheromones that comfort and reassure their nursing puppies. These "appeasement" pheromones have the same calming effect on adult dogs. D.A.P. mimics these appeasement pheromones to reduce or eliminate stress in dogs of all ages.

We personally have a storm-phobic Golden Retriever who lives in the lightning capital of the world, Florida, so we will try the diffuser and spray out on her as soon as the rainy season begins. She is not too comfortable with grooming either, so we shall have plenty of opportunity. D.A.P apparently takes a few weeks to be effective, so we hope to provide a report in May.

Flea and Tick Pet Products -- U.S. and Canada Keeping an Eye on Pet Reactions

Drs. Foster and Smith Inc.

Fleas and ticks can transmit disease, and many pet households would not be without an arsenal of flea and tick products to combat these nasty varmits.

It is generally agreed by experts these products can be appropriate treatments for protecting your pets and your family's health. Pet owners should carefully follow label directions and monitor their pets for any signs of an adverse reaction after every application.

Adverse reactions to flea and tick pet products range from mild effects such as skin irritation to more serious effects such as seizures. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is intensifying its evaluation of spot-on pesticide products for flea and tick control for pets due to recent increases in the number of reported incidents.

Meet Bo Obama -- the Newest Member of the White House Family

bo1_blog.jpg

After months of anticipation, we are introduced to Bo, the six-month old male Portuguese Water Dog who will become part of the Obama household. Bo is a gift from Senator and Mrs. Kennedy to Sasha and Malia.

AKC provides more information on the Portuguese Water Dog on their site.

An athletic, active breed, the Portuguese Water Dog requires daily vigorous exercise. He is very intelligent and responds well to obedience training. His profuse coat is hypoallergenic, but requires regular maintenance. It may be kept in the lion clip (the coat on the hindquarters and muzzle are clipped to the skin) or the retriever clip (the entire coat is clipped to one inch in length and follows the outline of the dog).

Bo has not yet moved into the White House.

Kosher Pet Food for Passover and Year-Round

boygirlfeedingdog.jpg

How do the laws of kosher apply to the pets in a Jewish household? The New York Times addresses the issue in Seder Fare for Pets Who Keep Kosher:

It might sound odd, but for Jews who consider Rex to be part of the family, Passover presents a quandary. Even though rabbis do not advise restricting dogs to a kosher diet, the Torah is clear about ridding homes of grains, not just avoiding consuming them, during Passover week, and pet food often contains rice, barley and other grains.

Those who keep kosher year round, meanwhile, believe that combining dairy and meat for any reason, even to feed to a pet, violates Jewish law.

If you are interesting in stocking kosher pet food, the article cites Evanger's Dog and Cat Food Company as a source, with scores of outlets nationwide.
