Be a Trend Setter
You could be the first pet owner with a cloned pet in your neighborhood. You don’t want to miss out on the opportunity for bragging rights, right? So, instead of buying a plot in the pet cemetery, buy a spot in the cryonic lab and freeze your pet’s DNA. This will preserve the DNA so that your pet’s bloodline will always have a chance at survival. You bought those pedigree papers for a reason, right? So, you might as well make sure the bloodline lives on even after you are gone. Just make sure that you have an executor in charge of your pet’s future family line so that they are well cared for into the future. And, as a progressive thinker, you can also have your body preserved cryogenically so that if a cure is found in the future for what ails you now, your body can be unfrozen and worked on by skilled doctors and nurses years after your peers are dead and gone.
