Could it be?

American boffins have created Zombie dogs. Scientists at Pittsburgh's Safar Center for Resuscitation Research have developed a way of reanimating the canines after several hours of clinical death. They drain the doggies' veins of blood and replace it with an ice-cold salt solution. At this point the dogs are considered dead, as they stop breathing and have no heartbeat or brain activity. Some hours later their blood is replaced and the Zombies are brought back to life with an electric shock. Minutes later they're running around again, apparently unharmed.

The Safar Centre plans to start testing on humans next year.

Alcor, my heros, long live the cryonauts!
I hope when they bring me back from death in 2335 that they have penis extension technology, a way to let me eat and drink all I want without getting fat, and no taxes.

In the late 1950s, Safar proposed the A-B-C (airway, breathing, circulation) sequence of resuscitation, including the technique of "mouth-to-mouth" rescue breathing. This CPR sequence is taught to millions of people every year and has been credited with saving thousands of lives. He founded the University of Pittsburgh's Safar Center for Resuscitation Research and directed it for many years. Throughout his life, Safar stimulated researchers and clinicians to develop treatments that saved lives and improved the quality of life of survivors.

In the United States, more than 680 people per day die of sudden cardiac arrest. Many of these deaths can be prevented if bystanders learn the skills in the AHA Chain of Survival:

Recognize a cardiac emergency.
Phone 9-1-1
Begin Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR).
Use an AED (automated external defibrillator) if available.

During the procedure blood is replaced with saline solution at a few degrees above zero. The dogs' body temperature drops to only 7C, compared with the usual 37C, inducing a state of hypothermia before death.

Although the animals are clinically dead, their tissues and organs are perfectly preserved.

Damaged blood vessels and tissues can then be repaired via surgery. The dogs are brought back to life by returning the blood to their bodies,giving them 100 per cent oxygen and applying electric shocks to restart their hearts.

Tests show they are perfectly normal, with no brain damage.
