Deerhounds in SPAAAAACCCCEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeee..​.. 4 years 6 months ago #40391

Styx the Scottish Deerhoud and Styx the newly discovered Pluto moon, www.bbc.co.uk/news/scienc...onment-23146454.
We have, in our 'pack', Styx, Hettie, Banrigh and Wee Dram. Pluto has Styx, Nix, Charon and Kerberos. I'm almost tempted to rename the dogs to match - but then I'd have to change my name to Pluto...

Just as a matter of further interest, we do name our dogs with humour, one of my dogs is Boycie, born on my knee during "Only fools and horses", could have been worse ,could have been "Rodney-you plonker".

Hello,

Laika was a Soviet space dog who became one of the first animals in space, and the first animal to orbit the Earth.

Here a stamp with Laika (not a Deerhound).

The horrible thing about that (Laika) is that she was killed in the process - a fate that they knew would happen before she was launched - there never was any intention to bring her home. Monkeys were also sent to space and killed. It is ghastly what human beings will do to intelligent animals. :(

Hello Trowsahound,

Thank you for your informations.

Yes, that's the sad end of Laika, but I use this thread to remind Laika.
