Rover Part 2

I'm not sure what it is about the idea of cloning a family pet, but it gives me the creeps.

US biotech company offers to clone man's best friend

I hope people who are shelling out all that cash realize that their new dog won't necessarily act the same as their beloved pet.

Good point, dude. Just because they have the same genetics doesn't mean they're going to think or act the same.

Or apparently even look the same. From the article:

This combo shows file photos of South Korea's first cloned dog, an Afghan puppy named "Snuppy" (L), a handout from Nature Magazine in 2005, and female cloned dog Bona (R) in this handout from Seoul National University in 2006.


I wonder what the chances are they are just giving people random dogs and saying they are clones? :-D

Or maybe those are both clones and I just misread the fine print.
