The first dog in orbit, carried aboard Sputnik II on November 3rd, 1957. Literally "Barker" in Russian. Laika was supposed to have died four days into the orbit by a package of poisoned food, but died much earlier, a few hours into the flight, due to overheating. Formerly a stray, Laika was at once the most lucky and most unlucky dog in the world.

An extremely photogenic stray mongrel from the streets of Moscow and the first animal to orbit the earth. A badass pup. Accomplished more in life than you.
Laika was the first cosmonaut. Outer space is haunted by her barks. We must remember her as a hero.

Laika was the first animal sent into space by Russia. She was launched into space November 3, 1957 and died from stress and overheating.
In music, the Arcade Fire performs a song called Neighborhood #2 (Laika). In the song, their older brother seems to be leaving and never returning (Laika left and never came back). The chorus says that Alex, their older brother, should have been named Laika.

P.S. The Arcade Fire is amazing
"Our mother shoulda' just named you Laika
