German Shepherd Hero Dog Cloned

Have you seen this news report about Trakr, the German Shepherd Dog?
Trakr died aged 15 years and with his owner James Symington was a hero at 9/11 after the terrorists attack in New York, finding the last survivor from the World Trade Center.
James has recently taken home 5 cloned german shepherd puppies from Trakr, who had his DNA taken and cloned. Former policeman James said "it it hoped that the pups will follow their famous father's trail - they are about to be trained as rescue dogs".
Now to anyone who has owned a German Shepherd Dog and lost it from either injury, illness or old age - I don't have to tell you about the anguish and loss that you feel (brokenhearted). So imagine just how proud Trakr's owner James must feel - to have 5 'clones' of Trakr to 'carry on the line' and to remind him of Trakr's legacy.
Isn't this just fantastic!
