Firm plans to clone dogs beginning June 2008!
News reports say that a firm in California, BioArts, is planning to hold an auction to clone 5 dogs.
The starting bid is $100,000 and they have named the project "Best Friends Again". Not sure I fully understand this and why people would spend that kind of money to "clone" their dog.
For one thing, will the cloned dog be exactly the same? I mean will it have the same personality? It will have to be trained all over again and could very well be a different dog based on its "new" experiences.
With all the strays today I would like to see these people donate the money to shelters and promote adoption of pets.
