Snuppy, the world's first cloned dog, recently marked his first birthday by plowing into three cakes--made of steamed rice, chocolate and ice cream. For his minders, the past year has been filled with controversy; Snuppy's creator, Hwang Woo Suk, was dismissed in March from Seoul National University for fabricating data on stem-cell studies. But the hound, who has never left campus, remains healthy. He spends his days playing with his student caretakers and bunks with them, too, for protection from anticloning activists. "We all love him so much," says a guardian. "He is very bright and friendly."
