Laika Picture


The other day when I wrote the email about my parents-in-law's dog Laika getting killed by a motorcyclist, I said that I didn't think there were any pictures of her. Well, I was wrong. Evidently my mother-in-law Cecilia did have one, and it appears to be the only one that exists. I know that in the U.S., people coddle their dogs and treat them like members of the family--and sometimes better--but here that's not the case. So Cecilia actually got a lot of flack for having this picture, apparently. I guess the family thought she was too sentimental or something for loving a dog.

In any case, she loaned me the picture to scan, so now we can all look at "Laika Loca" one last time.

Laika looks like she was a good puppy!

Nostrovya, Laika.

She was. Although she was around 12-14, apparently. More of an elder stateswoman.
