“They have different personalities,” Streisand says. “I’m waiting for them to get older so I can see if they have her brown eyes and her seriousness.”

By the way, Barbra has the third dog Miss Fanny, who is a distant relative of the late Samantha.

How much does it cost

According to Time,  Sooam Biotech Research Foundation charged around $100,000 to clone a dog in 2015.

ViaGen has a little bit different prices: they charge $50,000 to clone a dog and half less to clone a cat – $25,000.

As one of the benefits of ViaGen, they also offer you a special service,  genetic preservation,  for $1,600.

This service allows you to clone your beloved pets later.
