- A woman in Seattle couldn't handle the idea of her toy poodle dying
- She paid $50,000 to have her dog cloned
- She now has three identical copies of him and plans on getting more
One of the hardest parts of getting a dog is thinking about how you're going to cope when they pass away. Good news is that if you've got enough money and you're just a bit crazy, you can always have your beloved pet by your side
Say hello to 55-year-old Amy Vangemert from Seattle who has a 13-year-old toy poodle namedBuhner. 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 her pup and she ended up getting three copies of him back. Now she's named themBuhner Junio, Baxter, and Ditto.
She also says she plans on continuing to keep making clones of him, so he can live forever. If you to want to play God, she used a company called ViaGen Pets in Texas. They'll clone a dog for $50,000 and a cat for $25,000 and they were in the news last year when Barbra Streisand revealed she used them to clone her dog.
