    lol at cloning a dog in the hopes it will be identical in every aspect...down to its personality.

    :werd: 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.

    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 :lol:

    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.
