I saw it, I got completely hooked slash freaked out.  

These people definitely were obsessive compulsive over their deceased animals and definitely took it too far!  The ladys entire bed spread was her dog as well!! They spent like $50,000 on cloning these animals, if not more! They could save so many puppies in need with that kind of money!  I agree with you that once a dog passes cloning it may make it look exactly alike but the soul is gone, its def a different dog! I’d never clone my pet,  I’d start over with a new little guy… I love animals as well but that is def. taking it too far!!

I saw it too, it was SO weird!!! LOL. It’s like one of those things, you dont want to look but you kinda cant look away! Like Hoarders: Buried Alive. Same concept lol. I personally am head over heels for my little furbaby, so I haven’t experienced that pain of loosing him….BUT, I think their obsessions are completely irrational and a little crazy. Creating an animal with your dead animal’s DNA is creating a relative of your pet lol Not reincarnating your pet. It’s soooo crazy but sooo good to watch lol.

I watched it last week. The part where they are with the new cloned puppy and saying how it remembers/recognises them just kills me. It might have the same DNA but the memories and experiences of the original dog don’t come with that! I just wanna shake them!

I’m actually watching a rerun of this now. I love my dog (like you, i would say borderline obsessed), butttttt it’s not the same dog (nature vs nurture concept in play). I guess if you raise it the same way you raise the other its going to be similar – but spending 50k to get a similar dog…ehhhh.

As an aside the woofy guy seems completely nuts. He seems to really think his dog is coming back to life. If I was his gf I would be running in the other direction…she is extreemly understanding (much more than i would be)

As much as I dread the day my pets leave this earth, I would never consider cloning them. They are my babies, and no clone can replace them. Like you said, OP, it is a different pet despite them looking identical. Off to go cuddle with my babies now! 🙂

@o0olibelulao0o:  I believe they’re cloned in South Korea?

I think the people on the show are very extreme. I have no idea how that guy has a girlfriend…

I felt very sad for those people! I felt bad that they lost their pet(I recently lost my kitty :*(, which made me cry half the episode)…but on the other hand…cloning your pet after they passed away 3 years ago…or 10 i believe the one guys passed away…is really strange to me…they actually thought the pet would remember…the whole concept is strange….they never stopped grieving this loss and that is really sad.

Sorry I couldn’t explain how I felt about this a little better…I guess I can’t wrap my head around it…
