Amy Vangemert of Seattle has a 13-year-old toy poodle named Buhner. She said she couldn't cope with the idea of him dying so, she had him cloned.
And it worked. She paid a company $50,000 to clone him and got three copies back, which she's named Buhner Junior, Baxter, and Ditto.
And she says she plans on continuing to keep making clones of him, so he can live forever.
If you want to play God, she used a company calledViaGen Petsin Texas. They'll clone a dog for $50,000 and a cat for $25,000. They were in the news last year when Barbra Streisand revealed she used them to clone her dog.
