When our beloved animals pass away, it can be absolutely heartbreaking for any family. We have our memories and try to move on the best we can while keeping them forever in our hearts. One couple decided that was not enough, and spent a fortune to keep those memories alive.
When Edgar and Nina Otto recently lost their Labrador, instead of mourning and moving on, they did something remarkable: they spent over $150,000 to have their dog cloned.
Sir Lancelot, their beloved dog, now gets to live on in the form of a new puppy.
They stored some of the dog’s DNA four years before he passed away, and as soon as they heard that pet cloning was becoming a viable option for pet owners.
The process was a team effort between the San Francisco firm called BioArts and the Sooam Biotech Research Foundation in South Korea.
They named the pup Lancelot Encore, and he is the product of the DNA being injected into the egg of a surrogate dog.
This is the only dog that the Ottos have ever decided to have cloned. They also have nine other dogs that Lancey gets to play with in his puppy years.
