What on earth are these so-called 'geneticists' playing at?

New Scientist: Fluorescent puppy is world's first transgenic dog

A cloned beagle named Ruppy—short for Ruby Puppy—is the world's first transgenic dog. She and four other beagles all produce a fluorescent protein that glows red under ultraviolet light.

Fluorescent puppies, I ask you. What a totally wasted opportunity. If we're going to genetically engineer dogs, why not engineer them to do something useful?

Yes, that's right, I'm on about talking dogs again.

Just imagine: a talking dog.
