A couple in Boca Raton, Florida, just took ownership of their new puppy, which just happens to be a clone of their old yellow lab, Sir Lancelot, who died last year. The couple had Lancelot's DNA frozen 6 years ago, and then paid $150,000 to have the dog brought back to life as a clone
. It's the first time the procedure has been performed commercially.
I love my Maltese, but I don't think I would ever choose to have her cloned. I don't think I could ever look at the clone and not get a weird feeling! Someday I'll have to find some other way to cherish her memory.
