In a recent interview with Variety, Barbra Streisand revealed that she had her dog cloned after its death. She now keeps two of the clones as her pets. Although cloning pets surely not cheap, costing upwards of $100,000, the process is possible. Here’s a short walk-through on how it goes.
Streisand, a singer, songwriter, actress and director, revealed that before her 14-year-old Coton de Tulear ‘Samantha’ passed away, she obtained cells from the pup’s mouth and stomach in order to clone her. Now, she has two clones of Samantha named Miss Violet and Miss Scarlet. Although the dogs look like Samantha, Streisand explained it’s still too early to see if they inherited her personality as well.
