Posted 02-15-2008 at 12:12 PM by Trooper Sam

Here it is, a story from the BBC about a cloning facility in South Korea that has received its first commercial order for cloning a pet dog:

Come on, humanity. I miss my dead pets too. I cry like a baby when one dies.

But I am simply not so blind or deluded that I think that this is bringing the pet back!

It'll look like ol' Fido, but it's never going to BE the same. That, and does anybody know if they ever got some of those problems they had with Dolly the sheep figured out? Depending on when the genetic material from the original was harvested, that puppy could be born being essentially an old dog, genetically.

    I miss my pets to, but not enough to try to have them cloned. Stuffed and mounted maybe.. HAHAH Kidding about that of course.

    Cloning is pretty scary.
