I love my dog. I really do, but I would not sell my house to have her cloned after she dies. A US woman has done just that. She sold her house, flew to South Korea, and paid the biotech firm RNL Bio $50,000 to clone the dead dog. They apparently took skin samples from the dog two years prior to its death. She walked away from the cloning clinic with five cloned puppies.
Excuse me, but this is nuts! By some estimates, there are 4-6 million dogs that are euthanized in this country every year. Most are perfectly adoptable dogs that just need a good home. This woman could have saved her house and a dog if she would have just driven to the local shelter and picked out a loveable mutt.
