The 60,000 Puppy


did anyone see this last night, a programme all about Cloneing dogs in Korea.The firm who clone lots of dogs ran a competition to clone the dog of the most deserving case in britain.
Personaly i find the idea of cloning wrong and nearly turned the programme off, however i did watch it and my feelings remain the same.
It described the cloned dogs that the Koreans brought to Britain as product samples !
I wonder how many times the surragate dogs are used and whether when they performed a caesarian as they said it was the safest way, did they mean for the expensive pup or the mother.
The lady who won said " my dogs DNA is now banked so when i need to i can ring up and order another one !"
IMO the competition raised the owners hopes and of course they were dashed when they didn't win.
Apparently the cloned animal will look exactly the same
but the exact personality will not be transferred.
There was a scientist speaking who was part of some sort of cult who said that they had cloned several children ?
What do you think ?

I , too, find the whole idea of cloning very disturbing and unnatural.We are tampering with nature to suit our own purposes and one wonders where it will lead.

Don't like this at all Shelley. It's not necessary or normal. It's just a new fad for the extremely rich and bored. IMO anyone who wants to clone any animal for their own satisfaction just doesn't get what having an animal as a pet is all about.

yes FM i agree, IMO you can never replace one pet with an other, they should all be unique.
I felt the whole competition was in bad taste.
Quite scary to think cloning is happening !
