Dolly’s Been a Baa! Baa! Girl
Dolly Has Been Traveling in Questionable Company…
Recently, we asked Dolly’s kidnappers for the terms of her release and return safely to Integra. It turns out Dolly has some terms of her own. It seems though her kidnappers, too, are concerned about her getting plenty of attention and exposure to world travels. Our designated world traveler, Abby would probably be willing to take Dolly with her on her travels. Abby’s been to Cancun, Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, Ireland, Scotland, France, Australia and New Zealand. She is planning trips to South America and St. Lucia. Dolly could certainly enjoy some spectacular sites. The only problem would be whether Abby had room for Dolly among all her other stuff including dancing shoes, rubber duckie, People magazines, unopened workout videos, hotel property to include towels, lotions, cue tips, mouthwash, pens, and stationary…
Dolly’s demands, in her own words.
I think I really just want to return to FL. At least for awhile. I am not demanding anything much just some time with you all, my adopted family. I am not sure if you heard about the death of my grandmother’ and namesake’s father recently. It made me very sad. (see below). So I was named after Dolly Parton too!
If I can find a way back to Integra, will someone there be able to take me with them when they go on trips? I really do enjoy that, and have been doing that with the people I stay with. Yes, the actual travel is awkward, folded and sometimes pulled at when in a suitcase by what is called a TSA agent. But I did find my real sister in New Orleans during one of those trips, and met a very nice companion, Ziggy. Did you get my other photos?
I have heard of something called C.O.D., maybe I can use that to return, would that be OK? Us sheep are not good with initials after BaaBaa.
Yours truly, Dolly
LONDON — Keith Campbell, a prominent biologist who worked on cloning Dolly the sheep, has died at 58, the University of Nottingham said Thursday. Campbell, who had worked on animal improvement and cloning since 1999, died Oct. 5, university spokesman Tim Utton said. He did not specify the cause, only saying that Campbell had worked at the university until his death. Campbell began researching animal cloning at the Roslin Institute near Edinburgh in 1991. The experiments led to the birth in 1996 of Dolly the sheep, the first mammal to be cloned from an adult cell. The sheep was named after singer Dolly Parton. Researchers at the time said that the sheep was created from a mammary gland cell, and that Parton offered an excellent example.
