This may have been discussed on here before. But this just popped up in my news feed. I guess I can see the allure but it gives me the heebie jeebies.
Dying to know what you guys think?
That’s what I was thinking too.I'm gonna have to assume they keep a population of "laboratory" dogs there for the purpose of having the embryos implanted in them.
So then I wonder...in dogs, would this always result in a singleton puppy birth, never a litter? That right there would make a puppy turn out different.
And from an ethics standpoint, if I am right about the lab dogs....that's a problem for me. That's basically sacrificing one animal's life and well being in order to produce another. Not okay with me
^^^That^^^ 1000 times.There's lots of studies showing that the mother (dam) matters more than 50% in determining puppy temperament. How she reacts to her puppies, how she plays, how she interacts with her people- that all matters, too. So if the cloned pup was raised in a sterile lab, with no exposure to a typical household, limited stimulus, and a Mom who is probably stressed, it won't even be close to the same from week 8.
