What a waste of money.
lol at cloning a dog in the hopes it will be identical in every aspect...down to its personality.
And if it's identical in every aspect won't this one die from cancer as well?
I'd say science will be watching that one very closely.
Still a waste of money at $155,000 IMO.
Could have rescued a lot of doggahs with that $155k
What a shame, they could have cloned my dog and had a better result.
Just for the fact that they wasted so much money to clone the family dog I hope the clone is a terror.
So I just got to thinking, if I had a clone, it likely wouldn't be as tall.. Because height/bodysize/health has a lot to do with not only genetics, but also diet right?
It's just something I never considered until now.. I always imagined a clone as being identical, because that's how they are portrayed in the media. When in reality, they'd probably just look like a younger brother.
Sounds like a good scam... pose as a genetics lab and then just deliver a very similar looking dog once you find one
But seriously, I don't think it's a waste of money at all. If you love something, someone, a pet, whatever, you'll pay any amount.
The chairman of the company I work for paid $3 million for the family dog in his divorce.
