What would you dare to do to bring someone you lost back in your arms?
Well, phenomenal singer Barbra Streisand, who lost her beloved dog in 2017, had it cloned before it passed away.
In an interview with ‘Variety’, a Hollywood trade publication, the 75-year-old singer and actress shared on Tuesday, February 27, that cells were taken from the mouth and stomach of her 14-year-old Coton de Tulear dog named Samantha before it died.
Now, the late-Samantha has two genetically-identical puppies named Miss Scarlett and Miss Violet. She gave them those names because she dressed the puppies in red and purple when they arrived.
The American celebrity shared that her cloned dogs have very diverging personalities now that they are young. She is looking forward to seeing them when they are older as she wants to know if they got their mother’s eyes and calm personality.
The award-winning actress revealed that while anticipating the arrival of her newly-beloved cloned puppies, she also became attached to one of Samantha’s distant relative which she later on called Miss Fanny. Her adopted dog “Miss Fanny” got its name from the character she portrayed in her musical movie in 1968.
