When I was a child, Barbra Streisand was a staple in my house. She was my mother's favorite artist and like my parents, a doting animal lover.
I never had a pet dog before, but when I visited the homes of my friends and family, I was sure to give their pooches a healthy dose of love and affection.
Until 2017, Streisand had a beloved dog too. Samantha was a beautiful Coton du Tulear, who lived to the ripe old age of 14.
But during an interview with Variety, Streisand revealed the unique way she kept Samantha's memory alive - by cloning her.
