They say every dog has its last day. Now, thanks to technology, that doesn’t have to be the case.
“This is Chase, Ripley’s mother,” Jordan Goldblatt said. “This is Kendall, Ripley’s grandmother.”
Ripley was a champion.
“She was just a really great dog,” Goldblatt said. Goldblatt trains champions. “Bought my first one in 1985.”
Her love for Dobermans goes beyond four paws and a wagging tail. Since then, she has raised, bred and kept a few Dobermans for herself. Goldblatt currently takes care of three. One of them is a clone.
Ripley died in 2012. Years before that, Jordan knew someday, she’d want to make a copy of her prize winner.
“I knew that she wasn’t going to be the same, but that she would be similar,” Goldblatt said.
