Space Dog

Sometimes you find so much historical tidbits.

19th August 1960 two Dogs where the first lifeforms from planet earth to go into orbit and come back alive…. Korabl-Sputnik 2 (Sputnik 5)  was the spaceship and the Dogs were names Belka („Whitey“ + Strelka(„Little Arrow“)

 

Strelka went on to have six puppies with a male dog named Pushok who participated in many ground-based space experiments, but never made it into space.

One of the pups was named Pushinka(Russian for „Fluffy“ ) and was presented to President John F. Kennedy by Nikita Khrushchev in 1961. A Cold War romance bloomed between Pushinka and a Kennedy dog named C

harlie, resulting in the birth of four pups that JFK referred to jokingly as pupniks. Two of their pups, Butterfly and Streaker were given away to children in the Midwest. The other two puppies, White Tips and Blackie, stayed at the Kennedy home on Squaw Island but were eventually given away to family friends. So the decendants of the first Space Dogs are living in the USA….
