US scientists create zombie dogs

hi folks,

I just found an article on slashdot describing a process by which dogs have been drained of all their blood, injected with an ice-cold saline solution, and brought back to life a few hours later with an electric shock after their blood has been replaced.

the article says that the technique may be tested on humans in a year or so. The word "Boffin" in this article, by the way, apparently is some kind of term for a mad scientist.
