So Whaddya Think: Is Your Canine Cute Enough to Clone?

For a cool $150,000 Seoul-based RNL Bio will clone your pet dog! In cooperation with the scientists who created the world’s first cloned canine, "Snuppy," the organization will continue to work until they are successful . . . battling an average success rate of one out of four. The first order up is from a woman who wants a clone of her dead pittie and had ear tissue taken and preserved at a U.S. biotech company before the dog died a year-and-a-half ago. The idea is that you can have the same dog – genetically – over and over again for the rest of your life . . . are you buying in?

Nope. Not even if I had the money. To me, being a pet owner is getting to know that unique animal that found it's way into your heart and home! :)

I would never clone my dog. I don't think it would be the same dog even though the genetics is the same. Personality wise, it is not the same dog. I would rather rescue another dog that is about to be euthanized.

That is a bit creepy! I love my little greyhound Pete, but I wouldn't want to clone him. I think cloning should only be used for people losing a limb or some freak medical emergency. We dont all need to have a twin running around.

Its creepy and not cool. As much as I love my dogs I would never clone them. I wonder what trying to have the same dog time after time would do psychologically to people since we naturally become so attached to them. Besides who knows what underlying diseases or genetics defects may be intensified through cloning. I would rather honor my dogs' memories by rescuing another dog

Aside from the creepiness of it all, I don't think it's a very logical solution. Our pets are who they are because of their experiences and memories. A cloned dog won't be the same dog someone just lost; its soul/spirit/whatever you want to call it will be different. It would make sense if someone wanted a dog that looks exactly like their dearly departed, but if someone expected their dog back, they'd be heartbroken to find they've not only lost their dog, but they've lost the hope of having him back. It would essentially be like losing their dog twice. Surely they would realize this...I hope.

I love my pup, but this is going way too far. One Frankie is enough for the world. :) Plus, there are so many other puppies that need to be adopted that I would be doing them a disservice!

Creepy...I love my pets because of how their personalities surprise me. I'm terrified of losing them, but I wouldn't think a clone at the ready would make me feel better. I would rather have a new pet and be ready to be surprised and fall in love all over again. And all my pets are rescues. I'd so much rather do that than pay so much money to put a new animal into the world when there are so many out there that already need homes and love.
