Barbra Streisand lost her beloved pooch, Samantha, this past May. But all isn't lost - she now reveals she had the dog cloned. In a new interview with "Variety," Babs shares that she had cells taken from Samantha's mouth and stomach used to clone her two new pooches, Miss Scarlett and Miss Violet.
"They have different personalities," Babs says. "I'm waiting for them to get older so I can see if they have her [Samantha's] brown eyes and seriousness."
PETA isn't too happy after hearing about Babs' cloned pooches and released a statement to show their displeasure. "We all want our beloved dogs to live forever, but while it may sound like a good idea, cloning doesn’t achieve that — instead, it creates a new and different dog who has only the physical characteristics of the original," they said in a statement. "...when you consider that millions of wonderful adoptable dogs are languishing in animal shelters every year or dying in terrifying ways when abandoned, you realize that cloning adds to the homeless-animal population crisis."
