Laika – The story of a Soviet space oddity

Laika – The story of a Soviet space oddity

Laika was a three year old stray dog living on the streets of Moscow. She was thought to be a Samoyed or Husky crossbred, though she almost certainly had some Terrier or Spitz ancestors. She was also nicknamed Kudryavka (Little Curly), Zhuchka (Little Bug), and Limonchik (Little Lemon) by various personnel involved in the project.
