Barbra Streisand Reveals She Cloned Her Dog Twice
It was as easy as one-two-three. The Oscar-winner told Variety she had her beloved dog Samantha, who died last year, cloned to produce two of her three current coton de tulear dogs, Miss Violet and Miss Scarlet. Her third pup, Miss Fanny, is Samantha’s distant cousin. Canine cloning costs about $50,000 and the animals produced are not exact replicas: Streisand said her cloned pups have different personalities. Meanwhile, PETA released a statement imploring people to adopt animals from shelters rather than cloning cherished pets.
