That was Monday night, and I was there. Lancelot Encore, a 10-week-old yellow Lab, arrived with great hoopla from South Korea, via San Francisco. He's a clone of a dog named Lancelot that a Boca Raton couple so adored that they wanted to replicate him after he died last year. It cost $155,000. He is a sweet, adorable puppy sure to bring his family years of joy. They already have nine dogs, six sheep, assorted cats and parrots. Ed and Nina Otto are very nice people, and I hesistate to pass judgment, tho I certainly understand the ethical and moral issues involved (not with cloning itself, but vis a vis the devastating consequences of pet overpopulation). That said, the Ottos are serious benefactors of the Tri-County Humane Society in Palm Beach.
