Sorry to hear about your loss, losing a beloved pet is never easy. While cloning of pets is indeed possible, you do have to have a good genetic sample saved before they expire. It’s still pretty expensive too, and a cloned animal is still never going to be exactly like the original. Still, it was something I actually considered with my dog Taz some years ago, mainly because he was so extraordinary and had a combination of traits that were very difficult to find even in his breed. So many people loved his personality, I was often asked about his breeding and if he was available for stud but since he was neutered, cloning was the only option. And I was very curious in particular to see if another dog with the same genetics, raised by the same person, would turn out fairly similar. But ultimately the cost was too much just to satisfy my curiosity.
