    I can barely handle 1 of him... let alone 2!!!
    Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are like us." Ask the experimenters why it is morally okay to experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are not like us." Animal experimentation rests on a logical contradiction. ~Charles R.

    As much as I love love love my bullies, I would never ever clone them or anything or anybody for that matter. I just feel that people are "playing God" In my heart I would not feel right in doing so. God put all of us here for a reason and when our times are up they are up and We should just treasure that time...

    If you've ever lost one, you know you'd give anything to have him or her back.

    Even though I loved this poll...I was hesitant to vote in it. I love both Vegas and Orion tremendously...but I don't think I'd clone them. Vegas has a rough life already and I wouldn't wish it on his clone. But I can say...I don't think I will ever own another breed. Each individual bulldog has their own unique personality. I look forward to the day I get to bring more beautiful bulldogs into my home...but until then, I have my own amusing duo to fill my life each day with a fresh batch of bullytude and caos.

    No because as much as I love my boys, no clone could be the same. Would be like cheating on Cutty after he was gone or something.

    Well said @Libra926.... I feel the same way about our Princess Gracie....... Love her to death but wouldnt want to load her shortcomings onto a clone. And wouldn't cloning take some of the 'adventure' out of having a bullie???

    I think that is how I will feel the moment Samson leaves me. I can't say at this point I would want to clone him but I have a feeling the moment he passes I would wish I could have. I could not possibly put into words the love I have for that little boy, I always tell Samson that he is the love of my life and that he is "my pride and joy, my little boy." I just can't even bare the idea of him not being there, I DREAD the day I will have to deal with losing him. Oh goodness I am tearing up!

    I think it's easy to say no when you have your dogs with you and you can't imagine a day without them and I would've probably answered the same way until I lost Bentley. The love outweighs the grief but I would do anything to have my best friend back again, to pet that big head a few more times, to cuddle him on the couch for just a few more minutes after I've put Linus to bed, to have that wet puss rest on my laptop when I'm trying to work...I miss him and would do anything to have him back with me.

    Okay, that made me cry too!

    I voted no ... but I've never lost any of my bullies, so I can understand how my feelings may change when it does happen.

    However, having Maggie and then having Daddy and seeing how their two BIG BULLIE personalities are so different, it is a pleasure to discover little different parts of their character each minute of every day.

    Nobody could replace my baby girl, Maggie ... not even another Maggie.
