brave new world

I think I appreciate this kind of research because I can see the medical benefits of it. But it's still kind of eerie... like something out of a 1960s Hammer horror-film. Or Pet Cemetary times two.

Duing the procedure blood is replaced with saline solution at a few degrees above zero. The dogs' body temperature drops to only 7C, compared with the usual 37C, inducing a state of hypothermia before death.

Although the animals are clinically dead, their tissues and organs are perfectly preserved.

Are we taking the first step toward cheating death? Nah. We'll never completely cheat the Reaper, but this kind of stuff may be another way to postpone the inevitable. I'm all for the research.

I just don't know if I'd want to own a reanimated dog. I'm not sure that I could ever trust the fucker.

Re-animated dogs???? Hmmm...

I dont think so Rob....

Ever hear the expression "Happiness is when the dog dies and the last kid leaves home" ?????

Well thats my motto....

I want one. You know that no one would dare step foot in your yard after the story got around. "Kill Cujo Kill"

Nevertheless, it's still kind of creepy.
