Hello and welcome to The Taily Mail Issue 7! Here are this weeks’ latest dog news from around the world:
NEW COLLAR READS DOGS’ FEELINGS
PetPace is a new high tech collar that will monitor your dog’s vitals and text you when they are feeling unhappy or unwell. The sensors will monitor heart rate, temperature and breathing activities, similarly to what is done with professional athletes. If the collar detects a problem, the collar will text or email to the owner. “This collar will enable pets, for the first time, to ‘tell’ us how they feel” – states Dr Asaf Dagan, chief veterinary scientist at PetPace. The collar will go on sale in Britain next year for around £90.

Winnie’s five month old genetic twin, Mini Winnie, was given the all clear to leave the lab in Korea and fly to London to move into her new home. Dog owners can expect cloning company Sooam Biotech to clone their beloved pets for £60,000.
