Pappy's Mini-Me

When we got Pappy, he had already been *ahem* fixed. That means we won't be hearing the pitter-patter of tiny Pappito feet anytime soon. It's a sad thought we can't share the love by mass-producing him.

Unless... what is the current stance in the US on dog cloning? Yes, I understand that this would be an abomination with horrible moral implications, and I've read that the South Koreans went through thousands of clone implants to get one dog. But wouldn't it all be worth it to see Pappy's reaction? It's time we put modern science to good use.

I doubt any offspring of the Papster would actually look like him...mutters that he is. But cloning, hmm. Maybe I could get Maggie fixed and still hear the pitter patter of a little Maggot. Thanks for the idea.

Do you think the original would diminish in any way in the copies?

Becky, With your Maggie, I think we're talking the difference here between "clone Pappy" and "alternate universe Pappy". It's clear to me that DC and Orlando are parallel realities.

3dog, The problem with the pitter patter of little Maggie's is that she didn't stay little for very long.

Buster, We'd definitely have to keep him to a limited edition. Don't want to cheapen the product.

Ah, he sure is cute. I can understand the dilemna...to clone or not to clone, that is the question!

I just watched your DWB video - I loved it! You are awesome!

I'm torn on the cloning thing. I'm not really sure I'd want an exact clone of any of my dogs...unless they could be born at 5 YO!! I've always wondered about a Sherman/Penny pup. Smart as hell but Stubborn twice over!

Lola and Cubby, Thanks for the visits.

Ferndoggle, When you see tomorrow's post, remember you're going to be just fine... (cue ominous music)

We've been watching the DWB Christmas video - my whole family, human and doggie are addicted!

Happy holidays to you both and thanks so much for the video!!

3dog,
Go look at Disgruntled Owl's post... I was tagged at the same time as you. I guess I can be double-tagged.

As the proud father of Texas, I have often had the thought of clonepaws a-pittering. As the very excellent Texas was also fixed before we met him, this would be the only way. I find that to drive these thoughts from my head I must go play with my son. It helps.

You must consider the question: could there ever be enough Pappys in this world?

Chow for now,
