    April 24: Six cloned dogs, all named Toppy, play with their trainer, Kim Nak-seung, during their exercise at Defector Dog Training Center in Incheon, west of Seoul, South Korea. The country that created the world's first cloned canine, Snuppy, plans to put duplicated dogs on patrol to sniff out drugs and explosives. The Korean Customs Service on Thursday unveiled a group of seven Labrador retrievers being trained near Incheon International Airport, west of Seoul. The dogs were born five to six months ago after being separately cloned from an experienced drug-sniffing canine in active service.
