Dog Cloning Channel 4 tv show

The big news at the moment is a new show giving the "winner" a chance to have their beloved pet cloned. Seems to be a hugely polarising idea, most dog owners seem to hate the thought. Is there something wrong with people who want to do this? Is there some kind of personality issue or over attachment on the human's part? Or is it reasonable to want a copy of a pet? Personally I think my pets are individually special and it would be an insult to copy them in any way. A clone surely is never going to be an exact copy anyway? The original world and experiences cannot be created exactly and will produce a very different pet.
I may make a bet on when the first cloned dog is put into rescue.
