Default World's First Cloned Dog Celebrates First Birthday

There has been more than a year's worth of controversy and debate since Snuppy the Afghan Hound entered the world, but today marks his first birthday, and K9 Magazine is pleased to report that the world's first cloned dog is in rude health.

Since Snuppy's birth, the professor behind his creation, Hwang Woo Suk has been stripped of his post at the Seoul National University amid allegations that parts of his research into other areas had been falsified.
Regardless, the scientific community always accepted that Snuppy was the genuine article due to the rigour of research and evidence that supported the institutes claims to have become the first to clone a dog.
Snuppy celebrated his big day by getting stuck into a birthday meal consisting of his two favourite foods, ice cream and sausage. Despite his sweet tooth, he is a healthy 64 pounds, and is considered to be a very healthy, normal Afghan Hound.
To give Snuppy's birth some historical relevance, on the day he was born Peter Kay and Tony Christie were enjoying the fifth of their six weeks at number one with 'Is this the way to Amarillo?', whilst Chelsea FC were just one game away from winning the FA Premiership for the first time in their history.

other useful link-

btw, this was on may 12th 2006 so Snuppy would be 3 years now?
