Barbra Streisand cloned her dog…. twice.
This is real. This is happening.
Just months after the singer’s beloved Coton du Tulear passed away, Barbra has not-so-new fur babies.
The two pups were cloned by extracting cells from Samantha’s mouth and stomach. It’s hard to say if it is adorable or terrifying, yet how can we blame her for wanting to keep the spirit of her dearly loved dog with her?
“They have different personalities,”
Barbra explains. “I’m waiting for them to get older so I can see if they have her brown eyes and her seriousness.”
Aside from the two clone dogs, Streisand also has a third dog. Miss Fanny, named after the actresses’ legendary role in Funny Girl, is a distant cousin of Samantha’s. Samantha truly lives on through these three!
Would you ever clone your dog?
