Rudolph knows his role: He goes right to Lassie, seems to whisper something intimate in her ear; they nuzzle, and the Airedale strolls on like Maurice Chevalier with a tail.

The procedure could make it safer for animals to donate their cells for cloning, as the extraction of cells from milk does not require making an incision in the donor cow and reduces the risk of infection, Snow Brand said. The cloned calves were produced by the same method used to produce the sheep Dolly, the worldʹs first cloned animal.
