Ah, I stand corrected about the telomeres. It appears that independent studies on the length of telomere chains in cloned animals disagreed with each other (high error margin?), and the media originally reported the worst case scenario. I see now that the actual consensus appears to be that the telomeres are not depleted in the clone.
I am not against cloning whole animals, or even parts of animals or the human animal, with the assistance of stem cell technologies. I think that the acceptance of the ability to repair or replace one's damage d or missing body parts will be a major breakthrough.
Cloning is probably not all that difficult once you have the lab set up, so these companies charging $100,000 for a cloned pet will likely probably have a high profit margin. However, their entire business model depends on their clients emotional state, which is borderline ethical in my opinion. I also think they're charging way too much.
Otherwise, I'd run down to the hardware store and get a Cloninator for the home, if there was such a thing, to bring back the facsimile of my little dog.
