Well… we all knew it would happen, it was just a matter of when. When was November 18, 2008. Today, Lancey (who arrived in the US on January 25th) is with his family – who paid to have him cloned from their previous canine companion. The family said they chose to clone their original dog because he was the “most human” dog they’d ever shared their lives with.
As a behavior buff there’s a lot I could choose to say about their reasoning, but I always try to find something nice to say. 😉 So… I’m glad the family is happy with their new puppy.
