The perpetual puppies: Researchers reveal the three cloned offspring of Snuppy, the first cloned canine

    Snuppy, the first cloned dog, has been successfully re-cloned, a study reports

    This led to Snuppy, who lived a normal dog life and was cloned at five years-old

That sounds a little like a pet replacement company in the movie 6th Day.  It was called "RE-PET" .  You could take a DNA sample and get a perfect replacement for a dead pet.  I wonder at times how many cloned human beings there are in the world.

If I recall Re-Pet didn't work out so well. 

Seriously though, ethical questions aside this is pretty impressive.

Can I get a body for spare parts. I've beaten this one up pretty good?

Seriously. What was that Ewan McGregor movie where he was a clone that got picked to be chopped up by his original? I see that coming because ethics are going down hill fast.

I think it was in the books "The Matador Trilogy" where the baddie had a herd of cloned mammoths.
