Inspired by another UK family who had their dog cloned while it was still alive, Laura and Richard called Sooam Biotech, who said they could freeze some of Dylan's cells until they were ready to try to clone him.

The DNA got to the lab later than the preferred timeline, and there were some issues with the cells growing – which meant Richard and Laura weren’t sure if they’d successfully be able to clone the late Dylan.
