Dear dog lovers.....some heartening news ! ( Source AP news service ) An American woman received 5 puppies in late August 2008 that were cloned from her beloved late pit bull dog called Booger.She thus became the inaugural customer of a South Korean company that says that it is the world's first successful commercial canine cloning service. Seoul based RNL Bio said the clones of the dog Booger were born after being cloned in cooperation with a team of Seoul National University scientists who created the world's first cloned dog in 2005.RNL Bio is commencing its world wide services with Booger as its first successful clone. Booger's owner Ms Mc Kinney contacted scientist Lee Byeong-chun after Booger died of cancer in April 2006.She had earlier asked US- based Genetics Savings and Clone to clone her dog but the company shut down due to lack of demand and after producing a few cloned cats. The Korean scientists team brought the dog's frozen cells to Seoul in March and nurtured them before launching the formal cloning work in late May which resulted in Boogers descendants. Ms Mc Kinney , a screen writer who taught drama at US Universities, said she was especially attached to Booger because he had saved her life when she was attacked by another dog thrice his size.The incident left her with an amputated left hand and injuries to her leg nerves and stomach.Doctors later reconstructed her hand and she spent her recovery in a wheel chair. RNL Bio charges up to $150,000 for dog cloning , but Ms Mc Kinney had to pay only $ 50,000 as she was their first customer and helped with their publicity. When Ms Mc Kinney saw the puppies she was ecstatic and kept repeatedly shouting "It's a miracle!" She hugged the pups and exclaimed " Yes, I know you!You know me too!" The two surrogate mothers were both Korean mixed breed dogs!! Well pals,this is a true story of a devoted Pet owner.We talk about a dogs loyalty and extoll it to the skies ......this lady went to the extent of literally bringing back her dear dead dog by resorting to cloning and spending a huge fortune .She got 5 pups in the bargain too!! The marvels of science will never cease to make us wonder!
