– Some dogs really went down in history and were remembered by the world. For example, our Laika, who helped in space exploration, Golubev told RIA Novosti, who celebrates Dog Day on July 2. His contribution cannot be overestimated. It was thanks to her and other dogs who also participated in space tests that scientists were able to send ships into space and return them safely to Earth. Therefore, for all of us, dogs are not only true friends, but also the most indispensable, courageous and reliable helpers.

Speaking about Laika, the first animal in Earth orbit, he noted that it was thanks to his tragic end of flight that Soviet scientists obtained data that helped to identify and eliminate flaws in the design of the ship.

The cynologist said that Laika was chosen according to strict criteria: she, like other candidates, was tested on vibrating stands and centrifuges. The animal had to weigh between 6 and 7 kilograms, because the design of the ship required it. Also, rocket scientists liked Laika for her photogenic and calm character, quick wit and excellent health.

– In November 1957, Laika became the first cosmonaut dog on board the Soviet spacecraft Sputnik 2. Unfortunately, due to overheating and stress during takeoff, Laika died, but it was this dog that paved the way into space. for the people. Without him, scientists would not have received the data that allowed the space industry to improve, Golubev recalled.

Another important dog in the history of humanity called the first cloned puppy Snoopy. His birth was announced by a group of South Korean scientists from the University of Seoul on August 4, 2005.

Among the heroics, the dog handler highlighted the dog Balto, a sled dog who, along with other dogs, saved the small town of Nome in Alaska from a diphtheria epidemic. This story happened in 1925.

Due to the low temperatures, the plane that was supposed to bring the diphtheria medicine to the city was unable to take off. The serum had to be delivered by teams. And Balto, who was born on a sled dog farm, was the leader of one of the teams sent to transport medicines.

– The dogs had to run a distance of 1085 kilometers. The animals withstood the difficult conditions of severe frosts and storms. The journey took five and a half days, the dog team reached the city on time, and everyone was saved. Within five days, the epidemic stopped. The dogs that bravely carried out their work were recognized as heroes. Balto’s effigy has been installed at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, Golubev said.
