Woman pays firm at least $50,000 to clone puppies from her dead pitbull

August 6, 2008

Sad…..so, so, very sad…..This reminded me of a great post I read on one of my favorite blogs, Stuff White People LikeDogs had their own category….

This is all you need to know about the lady that shilled out $50k and sold her house for copies of a dead dog:

She sold her house in the United States to raise the $50,000 for RNL scientists to turn skin cells taken from Booger before he died two years ago into embryos carried by two surrogate dogs for two months until giving birth to the puppies last week.

“I had to make sacrifices and I dream of the day, some day when everyone can afford to clone their pet because losing a pet is a terrible, terrible loss to anyone.”
