I arrived back from Chile this morning to find out that Rosie The Labradoodle had given birth at 0815.
Just one puppy – a girl, and she looks like she’ll be quite curly. It’s quite a change from the eight we had two years ago, and with all the costs involved we’ll be losing money this time even if we sell her (there are murmurs that we should keep her instead).
As with all baby animals, she is impossibly cute. I think that if I were to start a biotech company that genetically engineered baby animals to stay babies, I’d make some serious money. Imagine it: puppies that stayed puppies, or kittens that stayed kittens. Ethically, it may raise questions, though.
