When dogs die, their owners often hold onto some kind of memento. Maybe they keep a collar. Or they have ashes turned into jewelry, trees, art or some other keepsake. And eventually, they make new memories with a new pet, perhaps of the same breed as the departed dog.
Barbra Streisand, on the other hand, cloned her dog, a procedure that can run from $25,000 to $100,000 through services such as the Texas-based ViaGen.
