Dogs in Space Humor
Laika - The first dog in space
The barber is impressed with 'Laika's' trip into space. Says 'alika this', 'laika that'. Not happy with dog being sent to her death.
Expert says, 'laika's not her name, it's her breed. She's NOT 'laika', she's A laika.'
Barber says no way. "She's-a no laika', he replies. 'she's-a have-a no choice.'
In 2007, Nick Abadzis wrote a graphic novel called 'Laika' about the first dog to go into space. Later he wrote alternative endings with Laika coming home.These were commissioned by 'Big Planet Comics' who have a website.
Here is a short animation with a happy ending for Laika - the first animal and dog in space.
