Meet Famous Dogs On Television!

Tiger, Lassie, Rin Tin Tin, Scooby Doo, and Sugar Pie are among some of the most famous dogs in television history. Spuds Mackenzie, Paddington, and Storm are famous for their TV commercials. Liaka was not on television but she deserves a notable mention on this page for being the first dog in space. Unfortunately, she did not return from orbit.

In this volume, readers will find information to help them make sound decisions as they consider bringing a purebred dog into their lives. More than 150 breed descriptions are grouped along American Kennel Club divisions: the sporting group, the hound group, the working group, and so on. Each breed entry includes a lovely color photograph that, thanks to the size of the book itself, is large enough to offer bright, clear images. Breed descriptions are organized into subsections entitled "History," "Temperament," "Upkeep," "Health," and "Form and Function." An "Illustrated Standard" sidebar consists of helpful black-and-white line drawings that highlight some of the distinguishing elements of the breed standard as defined by the AKC. Another sidebar, "At a Glance," lists characteristics for each breed, including energy level; playfulness; friendliness toward dogs, other pets, and strangers; protection and watchdog ability; grooming requirements; and heat and cold tolerance. It is easy to compare breeds using these "At a Glance" sidebars.The appendixes include "Definitions of Medical Conditions," a list of Web-based genetic health resources, lists of currently available DNA tests and testing laboratories for disease-causing genes, a glossary, and drawings of dog anatomy. The glossary is broken into subsections such as "General Terms," "Color Terms," "Head Terms," and "Movement Terms." The "Index of Breed Entries" includes the AKC names as well as alternate names, with the former clearly marked in bold type.

The First Dog Into Space

While the Amerians sent monkeys and chimpanzees into space, the Soviets sent dogs. Laika, a female Siberian Husky mix, became the first animal to enter orbit when she was launched into space aboard Sputnik 2. Laika's was also the first to die in space, as no provision was made to return her to the ground.

Belka and Strelka, two Russian mixed breeds, went into space aboard Sputnik 5 and returned. They were the first animals to survive an orbital flight. Strelka later gave birth to a litter of puppies, one of which was given to Caroline Kennedy by Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev.[38]
