    Thank you for drawing attention to this issue. You asked for the views of members. Well, all I can say is that I totally agree with the views of Vicki Katrina of the Humane Society:

    “The Humane Society of the United States opposes cloning of any animals for commercial purposes due to major animal welfare concerns. Companies that offer to clone pets profit off of distraught pet lovers by falsely promising a replica of a beloved pet. With millions of deserted dogs and cats in need of a home, pet cloning is completely unnecessary” (Bold print added by me, to stress the important point)

    I was also concerned by the following part of the article:

    "At the Sooam Biotech lab in Korea, the process requires operating on the egg donor and the surrogate mother – two dogs who are rented from a lab-animal provider. It’s not exactly clear what happens after those two dogs are no longer needed."

    What sort of "operating"? Intrusive surgery? Regarding the future of these laboratory animals being "not exactly clear", that sounds highly suspicious. Either something is clear or it is not. I suspect that such animals are put down after being used to create a clone. That is totally unacceptable.

    If I had the same opportunity, I'd clone my Boston, too...
