I agree with thisruff n tumble crew said:You can clone all you want, but the environmental factors WILL NOT be the same. Therefore, in spite of the DNA being the same, it just will not be the same dog. I absolutely adored my first labrador. She was more like a daughter to me. I wouldn't clone her for any amount of money because I will never again have the time and energy to do with another what I did with her. I hope these people aren't disappointed if this pup doesn't fill the shoes of their previous dog. :whatever:
I totally understand your feelings. But if the lady wants to spend $150K of her own money "foolishy", why not let her do it without comment. Then ... as long as she apparently has plenty of cash, ask her if she would consider an additional donation to a rescue? :happy: Just because others seem to be well off financially, it's improper (IMO) to suggest what they should do with their "surplus".BoatDog said:Jim - that was my take - her $$ - but I'd still like to see rescue end up with 1/2 that workable cash for all the good they do!

Indeed, said the no-kill shelter's founder and CEO, Jeannette Christos, the Ottos have given her shelter almost twice what their new puppy cost.
''When the new building goes up, their name will be on parts of it,'' she said. Ed ``has a big plaque in our lobby, and he bought us a new van.''
