Over at BioArts International the reputed first in the world first commercial dog cloning service a Mr Hawthorne says 99% of the time people should get their dogs from shelters. He goes on to say that when you have an exceptional dog what is wrong with cloning that dog. Now I don’t know about you but every dog owner I know thinks her dog is exceptional and would be devastated to lose their friend.

I don’t know what I think about cloning, but I do think people should think long and hard before they shell out the reported 140,000 dollars it costs. READ MORE about Cloning Your Dog

Since I brought up the subject of cloning, I thought I would pull an old story out of the basket concerning ethics and trust. Seems Reuters pushed a story about a cat who had a brief fling with a neighborhood dog and ended up giving birth to puppies. Now before anyone freaks out, you can read more of this 2006 story titled Journalistic Standards Go to the Dogs (and Cats)

Have a wonderful dog filled weekend everyone. :)
