Well this is certainly one way to remember your dog’s life…

Laura Jacques and Richard Remde of Yorkshire, England decided they were going to honor the memory of their beloved boxer Dylan after he passed away… by cloning him to get new puppies.

The English couple spent nearly $100,000 to have a pair of puppies cloned at the Sooam Biotech Research Foundation in South Korea using the DNA they got from their boxer Dylan a couple weeks before his death back over the summer.

The couple first made news just for having been able to successfully clone puppies more than six months after the older dog’s death — and now, well, we can see the results.

Ch-ch-check out the newest boxer pup, Chance, born on December 26 (below):

Awww — he’s actually pretty cute!

This certainly isn’t, um, the most normal way to get a dog, but hey, it’s their money and they can spend it how they like, we suppose — especially if the dogs they get will be well treated and loved!

Jacques spoke to reporters about the whole cloning situation:

“I’m trying to get my head round the fact that this puppy has 100% of the same DNA as Dylan. I had Dylan since he was a puppy … I mothered him so much, he was my baby, my child, my entire world.”

The cloning facility involved has apparently cloned hundreds of animals before this, so it sounds like the new boxer puppies are going to be fine.

Again, it’s weird, but… well, the puppies are cute…
