Zombie dogs!

"Scientists at the safar center for resuscitation research have successfully brought dogs 'back to life' 3 hours after they were clinically dead," writes Skippy. "they consider this a breakthrough in the treatment of severe and otherwise fatal injuries. what's more, they take great offense at the fact that the story has taken on...er, a life of its own...on the internet, that is. seems they don't [like] seeing their experimental subjects described as 'zombie dogs.'

so stop it, everybody out there in cyberspace. this is serious research, not a horror movie! these re-animated canines are not going to come to life and suddenly start devouring every living thing they see...ravaging the country as they travel, singly and in packs...to eat, and eat yet again...after first turning on their unsuspecting masters..."
