It's amazing what can be done these days. Phones are getting as useful as computers, doctors can perform surgery remotely using robots, and scientists have genetically modified a beagle to glow in the dark.

Five great reasons to have a glow in the dark dog:

1. Have your own mobile night light,

2. Easy way to find your way around the campsite after dark.

3. No need to bring a flashlight to walk your dog at night

4. Awesome for Halloween

5. One step closer to glow in the dark people!
