Cloning dogs...

Cloning dogs...

I see in South Korea they have successfully cloned an afghan hound puppy.

One of the many implications of this is that dog owners could, theoretically, clone their present dog so that they get an exact replica in nature, temperment, markings etc.

Scary stuff eh!

My cat died recently and although I will be replacing her anytime soon, no way would I want to have an exact replica of her. (lots of people will be breathing a sigh of relief as she was a bit of a misery and used to scratch and bite if the mood took her!).

All this science and technology leaves me feeling slightly freaked out.

... i only came online to visit Delia's site for tips on how to season a frying pan ...

I dont like the idea of "interferring (sp?) with nature" and find it all a bit sinister to be honest....but then perhaps I watch too much science fiction :unsure:

I dont agree with cloning full stop. It playing god - and it makes you wonder how many mistakes they made, and animals that had horrid and painful deaths until they finally got it right.

But - the puppy was kinda cute - he had white eyebrows.

I'm not perfect, but im so close it scares me

Are there not enough unwanted animals in the world already without breeding/cloning/producing more.

Bloody mad.

I don't see a huge problem with it personally.

A hundred years ago, most advanced medical treatments would have been thought of as "playing God".

What is it exactly that's distasteful about cloning? Is it worse to clone humans than animals? And if so, why?

Isn't such cloning done initially mainly to show it can be done? I can't imagine for one moment that it's done so people can have their favourite bunny-wabbit replaced.
