    That's like the idea that's floating around about growing meat in a petri-dish (sp?) so that vegetarians can eat cruelty-free meat! Ewww. Petri-meat

    No cloned dog for me either!!!! I love Gus but when the time comes I will except the fact that he can't live forever, it will be very hard. But that's life! the thing about cloning is, where do you draw the line?! Where will it all end?!!

    Never! The dog would look the same, but would'nt have the same personality, or anything else. Having the same phenotype (appearance) is as far as cloning goes. There are already too many homeless dogs. Get one of them. No body needs to be bringing more dogs into the world. If you have a purebred german shephard, adopt one that looks like it. Id would be the same as cloning. It would look nearly the same, and would'nt know you or act the same like a clone would. Its like the lady that paid oddles of money to have her cat cloned. Why? Its not your cat. It just looks like it.

    It wouldn't be the same. I'd rather have the scientists find a way for my dogs to live longer and stay young rather than keep on cloning them. That way I can stay with my pets longer. BUT bringing a new dog into the house is always a joy.
