Alright dog lovers; here you go!  I will admit to having been fond of some good dogs, with two or four legs, from time to time.  However, I will admit that I would have to jump back if any of them came at me glowing!  No, not emitting outright signs of elation, but actually glowing!

WHAT?!?!  That’s what I said!  I realize that people do love a good pooch, yet I did not think that it extended to having it serve as an actual night lamp.  Over to South Korea; a group of intensely working scientists had been experimenting by using dogs as their subjects.  Before contacting P.E.T.A., I did read through the article.

At Seoul National University, Korean scientists had been working avidly to find methods of curing some of the most devastating diseases.  One proven method to work toward defeating illnesses is to destroy them at the cellular level.  After reviewing proven studies that show where domesticated dogs and human beings share traits that allow them/us to be able to contract a total of 268 of the same illnesses, scientists have worked with our canine associates to see how useful they can be with being used to find cures for human ailments.

These scientists created this beaming bone burier from technology that had been used earlier.  During 2005, South Korean scientists cloned the dog called Snuppy, which was used for testing and methods of treatment.  The same experiments were used to create Tegon during 2009, the female dog that is being used for finding cures and treatments for severe illnesses.

It was during some of these tests where Tegon was administered doses of the antibiotic called doxycyline.  This is used to work against bacterial infections.  It helps to fight problems that include acne, chlamydia, gonorrhea, periodontis, and urinary tract infections.  Doxycycline is not supposed to be used by people with allergic reactions to some of it’s internal components, or if people are afflicted with ailments that include asthma, kidney disease, liver disease, and Parkinson’s disease.

South Korea did perform prior experiments during 2009.  Four beagle puppies were used for testing, and were labeled as the planet’s first transgenic dogs because of their ability to fluoresce during darkness.  Ever the intellectuals, the scientists named all of the dogs Ruppy, which is a combination of the words ruby and puppy, as the dogs all emit a reddish hue while under fluorescent lighting!
