Barbra Streisand has revealed that she has successfully cloned her beloved dog Samantha twice before the dog's death back in 2007. The entertainment icon told TMZ that she harvested DNA cells from her dog Samantha's mouth and stomach and has kept her alive, so to say, via clones with pups Miss Scarlet and Miss Violet.

Dog cloning to the tune of $100,000 per clone

Streisand's dog's full-blooded breed is a Coton du Tulears. The identical pups are hard to tell apart, so Babs has marked them by giving them specified colored sweaters to make the process easier.

So, how does one go about getting such a procedure done to keep their beloved pets alive?

This type of lab and procedure is few and far between.

However, Sooam BioTech has made it possible for pet owners to obtain an exact copy of their beloved furry family members. To date, 600 dogs have been cloned. This does not come cheap, though. The cost is $100,000 per clone. A mere drop in the bucket for celebrities such as Barbara Streisand. The 75-year-old actress and singer started her career at age 16, spanning more than six decades in the entertainment business. Barbara is married to "Life In Pieces" star James Brolin.

The couple has no children together and considers their dogs very much a part of their family. In other Streisand news, it was recently revealed that Barbra Streisand may be starring in the Ryan Murphy Netflix series "The Politician." The popular streaming network signed a deal for a two-season, straight-to-series order, according to Deadline.

Though the series is set to star Tony winner Ben Platt, Deadline adds that two high-profile stars are also in negotiations to join the cast: Barbra Streisand and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Normally, Barbra steers clear of television series and sticks to film and stage. Her last film role was more than six years ago in the 2012 comedy film " The Guilt Trip." However, considering her husband James Brolin's huge success with his CBS comedy series "Life in Pieces," a TV series could prove to be a very lucrative venture.

Not that she needs the cash. In 2017, Barbra Streisand [VIDEO]'s net worth was listed at $390 million, making the Forbes list of America's Richest Self-Made Women. However, you never know, if Babs continues to clone her pets, things could get pretty costly. What are your thoughts on pet cloning? Would you ever consider cloning your pet at that cost?
