L.A. Businessman Spends $310,000 To Clone Two Pet Dogs

Peter Onruang has paid $310,000 to clone his pet dogs

Dog is man’s best friend. For the Hollywood businessman, Peter Onruang, his two dogs Wolfies and Bubbles were more than that, he treated them as his children. Therefore not surprising that he spends $310,000 to having his two beloved pet dogs cloned.

Before Wolfie’s demise, two years ago, Onruang took measures to preserve her genetic material and that of her sister Bubble in the hope that he could have them cloned at some point in the future. First, Onruang had to raise the money to have the expensive cloning procedure performed on Wolfie and Bubble. He founded a company, Hollywood Paintball, with the express purpose of raising the money – to the tune of several hundred thousand dollars. A few years later, Onruang says a South Korean company has been paid for the cloning procedure, and he now awaits the births of Wolfie and Bubble clones.

Fact that the cloned dog isn’t the original, no matter how much its owner may want it to be, obviously does not affect Peter Onruang. He just wants the closest thing possible to his original dogs, and he expects to have a clone (or clones) of Wolfie later this year. He also maintains a website through which he dispenses advice about the dog-cloning process. [BornRich]
