Holly Chugg Jones and Julian Light suffered an awful tragedy when their dog Dobby fell off a cliff in the UK!!
They had to go home, sad and alone, after they searched but found no sign of their dearest doggy.
"The coastguard were there within 15 minutes but it was getting dark and so we had to go back to the campsite although I didn't want to leave. I didn't sleep a wink, I was so upset. The next morning the search started again but there was nothing we could do but sit in our car and watch. It was awful. I kept imagining Dobby dead in a ditch or washed out to sea."
Then, miraculously two days later, a lifeboat crew found the one-year-old pup!

The Chicago Department of Aviation has awarded a contract for sustainable grazing services for Chicago International Airport.
That means that instead of paying humans to take care of their lawns, they're going to have a herd of goats take care of it!!
Yes, that's a real thing that's going to be happening!

In Uruguay, scientists have genetically modified sheep so that they can glow-in-the-dark!!
They only glow under ultraviolet light though, so unless you have a black light, you'll miss these goats' special ability.
Researchers at Uruguay's Animal Reproduction Institute partnered with the Pasteur Institute of Montevideo to create the first transgenic sheep in Latin America.

Regardless, we think this cat must have been royalty in the past…riding that sheep looks way too natural!
Watch (above) as this cutie takes the easy route!

Sad…one of the most controversial innovators in science has passed away.
Keith Campbell has died at the age of 58, although the cause of death was not released by the biologist's employer, Nottingham University.
Campbell began researching animal cloning in 1991 and his experiments led to the birth of Dolly, a sheep clone named after Dolly Parton.
After Dolly, the biologist continues his research as a professor at Nottingham University and successfully cloned pigs and lambs.
