The clone of Sámur, the former First Dog of Iceland, is born, mbl.is reports. Sámur belonged to former President Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson and his wife Dorrit Moussaieff. The birth of the puppy was announced by Ólafur Ragnar on Twitter last night.
Dorrit posted a picture of the puppy’s birth certificate on Twitter. It has been given the name Samson. The name appears very appropriate, for Sámsson means the son of Sámur in Icelandic. Samson was born October 25, weighing 684 g, and measuring 28 cm (11 in). The birth certificate shows Samson’s paw prints.
