USSR-2383-84

Flight of Sputnik 5 with Belka (Squirrel) and Strelka (Little Arrow), her unwitting passengers. Belka and Strelka, unlike their more famous comrade Laika, actually made it home intact, thus becoming the first living animals to survive orbital flight! (Info from the "Dogs in Space" page from Space Today Online.
