World's first commercially cloned dog

[I just wonder, how many abandoned puppies could have been saved for this amount of money?] A Boca Raton, Florida, couple paid a California firm $155,000 to clone their beloved Labrador retriever, who died from cancer a year ago. The clone, a 10-week-old puppy dubbed Lancey, was hand-delivered to them earlier this week by Lou Hawthorne, chairman of BioArts International, a biotechnology company. Source: CNN

I agree, all that money could have been used to save so many dogs in shelters. Also I don't think a cloned dog will behave or act the same way as the original dog, dogs have long memories and they act according to their memories. I think this couple are in for several surprises.
