She thought it was all Rover… Barbra Streisand has her pet dog cloned
NOW this really is a mutt-read… Barbra Streisand had her late dog cloned to create two new pooches.
The Way We Were singer used cells from the mouth and stomach of her beloved pet Samantha, who died aged 14 last year.
Now Streisand is eager to see if Miss Violet and Miss Scarlett, both Coton de Tuléar breeds, will bear any resemblance to Samantha.
‘They have different personalities. I’m waiting for them to get older to see if they have her brown eyes and seriousness,’ she told Variety.
The 75-year-old music legend also has a third dog named Miss Fanny, inspired by her character Fanny Brice in the film and stage show Funny Girl.
