Medical student in the United Kingdom, having previously studied Biology at A-Level. I spend a good deal of my time volunteering with St John Ambulance, which I find fantastically rewarding and when I'm not writing essays I'm handling flags here on Bio.SE.

Heard a news story a couple of days ago about a couple who had their dog cloned after it died. @leonardo Amy had some brief suggestions. Also your last paragraph might be better posed as a seperate quesiton.
