Did you know...
... that today is Belka and Strelka Day? On this day in 1960, the USSR launched Korabl-Sputnik 2. On board were two mix-breed strays that were found wandering the streets of Russia. The tiny canines each weighed about 12 pounds and were named Belka (Squirrel) and Strelka (Little Arrow). Trivia buffs: Shortly after returning to Earth, Strelka gave birth to a litter of six puppies, one of which was given to Jacqueline Kennedy, wife of U.S. President John F. Kennedy.
