Freaking awesome, that's how she'd look. A true Filioness.
Hahaha, thats hysterical! I love how they put that little halter on the first one
The halter caught my eye too . I think a pony=clip should be a new fad !
LOL If I had a stadard poodle I'd keep it trimmed like that just for the heck of it! I love it
Faux news (false news?)
Thats not quite true. There are mice and rats that have human braincells in their heads, not the same thing. They are not any smarter than regular mice.
And gene splicing (which we have done in molecular bio) isn't the same as crossing. You don't get the traits of both. You get the expression of the gene you added. So out of 1000's of genes, one is diff.
Fox News, Dekka..... and I don't find it too terribly hard to believe they're saying the mice have human brains.
but since you know about this sort of thing.. what on earth is the point of having a few human braincells in a mouse's brain other than being able to say to other scientists "ZOMG! Lookie what I did!"? Is it even going to do something to the mouse? And where are they getting the brain cells from?
Yup, I know it's impossible to cross a dog and pony, it's not like a tiger and lion or whatever, they're just too different! But it could have been a slightly different type of poodle for all I knew, and whilst I'm usually not, I was a tad gullible then after reading all the posts. Oops!
But still, does anyone think it may be possible in the future? Or attempted even?
i want one! that is genius.
OMG! I am sooo gonna let Fancy's hair grow out and clip her like that!!! hahaha and I'll have to dye her "Mane" and tail... although, her tail is docked short so I probably wouldnt get the tail effect, but it would still be cute!
OOOO and I can leave some hair on her feet to make her more shetland(sp) like
Oh man Renee! You should totally do that!
This is freaking awesome. It's the only thing I have ever seen that has gotten me to seriously consider a poodle. I wonder if a bouvier could be clipped like that......
I'm with you Romy ..... I love big smart dogs and ponies !!!
im a big fan of the pony cut!
Rubys been in pony since summer (its common in cresties)
but thats real cool on the poodles...hmm i want a standard in the future...mabe ill have to pony cut my poodle too...
heres my chinese pony lol
(even pink! she was pink for a cure for halloween, its koolaid and VERY safe so dont worry lol)ill have to get newer pics, she was looking a lil shaggy there lol.
Oooh, yeah! I just read an article on this, and it's absolutely fascinating. Basically, they injected human embryonic stem cells into the brains of a few mouse fetuses. The embryonic stem cells matured right along with the other cells, and are now working parts of the mouse's brain.
And it won't result in super-intelligent mice, or anything like that. Embryonic stem cells are basically "blanks": they can eventually become any type of cell. The human brain cells have actually developed the characteristics of mouse brain cells.
With mice like this, they can test cures for brain disorders, like Parkinson's, without actually putting any people at risk.
While I'm no scientist, I don't think it would really do anything to the mouse. The brain cells, while human-based, work like the rest of the mouse's brain.
And if those idiots at Fox News bothered to do any research whatsoever, they'd find out it was NOT the result of genetic "splicing": the mouse's DNA was not tampered with at all. I think that even if the mouse reproduced (which it almost certainly won't be allowed to do), its offspring would be normal mice with no human parts.
Here's the article I read:
Ooops. Sorry for derailing the thread. Pardon! *slinks back into evil media lair*
Nooooo, thanks, Gemp! That does make much more sense. You answered the very important question of "why" for me, LOL! I'm glad to see it actually has a potential use rather than being just another thing we can say we did.
That is priceless. AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
A realitive by marriage bought a Lab/poodle ..... I'm going to suggest that cut as she said that she doesn't look like the ones on line .
At first I thought this was serious, then I got my brain
back and realized you cannot mate a dog and a pony, :lol-sign:
