Did you know that the first dog to be cloned was a dog named Snuppy? Born [*ahem, created*] in 2005 in South Korea, Snuppy was the first cloned dog in history. Another interesting tidbit, you can also get your dog cloned by a team of scientists for only $50,000-$150,000.
If you’re a crazy dog person but just not *that* crazy, the next best thing to a real cloned dog is a stuffed animal version of your pup– a Cuddle Clone. Based out of Louisville, Kentucky, Cuddle Clones creates the most incredible stuffed creations. Warning: Sometimes walking by these stuffed pups in the middle of the night will scare the bejeebus out of you.
Below are just 25 of the Cuddle Clones out and about snuggling in this world.
#25: Jin Sang
And #1, our very own Frida the office pup with her Cuddle Clone! Eyelashes and all.
The whole process of getting a Cuddle Clone made is pretty cool. When you start the process, you fill in what type of pup you’ve got, the weight, and TONS of details.
You add photos of every detail of your pup and submit! Then the folks over at Cuddle Clones work their magic. (And they don’t make just stuffed clones! You can also get figurines, and ornaments.)
Frida and her clone. Not only does Frida keep trying to play with the plush version of herself, it looks so much like a real dog that it’s a bit alarming at times. : ) If you’d like to get a Cuddle Clone for yourself,
