Celebrating World Space Week

Maymo the Astronaut dog

In 1957, Russian canine Laika was the very first cosmonaut to orbit the Earth. Ever since that momentous time, dogs have played a vital role (per usual) in space travel (and everywhere else).

With such important history in mind, today we celebrate World Space Week (October 4-10) with funny-dog Maymo. Woof!
