Laika is quite the artist's muse. Best memorialised by The Divine Comedy on 'Absent Friends':
'Laika flew through inky blue...'

I adopted a dog from an animal shelter one time.

It just wouldn't bond.

This picture shows exactly what I finally did with it.

When in Los Angeles be sure to visit the shrine to Russian space dogs at the Museum of Jurassic Technology (really, this is true).

Among the countless works of fiction inspired by this wonderful dog, I'd recommend "Habitus" by James Flint.
