Cloned Canine Celebrates Her 1st Birthday

Hawthorne began the journey to clone Missy in 1997, and launched Genetic Savings and Clone (GSC) in 2000, intending to offer commercial cat and dog cloning to the general public. Despite cloning numerous cats and significantly advancing the science of cloning, GSC was unable to clone Missy and cl
