Celebrating World Space Week

Maymo the Astronaut dog
Written by Chester

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!
