The only special-ish thing about it is that it's unique --
there will never be another one like it, no matter how
much dog breeding you do. Fortunately, it's also immortal.

It's not the only puppy with that property, though.
For instance, there's the pair True and False, born
of the same litter but of quite opposite temperaments.
And type, the ancient mother of all canines.
