It's only natural that my latest creative mashup would come to this: Space and Dogs.
It started with a painting I did of a Westie floating in space in an astronaut suit and now I'm hooked!
The concept is not new of course. Dogs in space is a popular subject in Books and art.
Early Russian space flight (Sputnik) turned a number of dogs into overnight celebrities.
I've just finished my latest "Space Dog" painting. This one has more of a nostalgic feeling to it:

Going back to the drawing board now - I feel the need to stuff more dogs into space suits :-)
For all of you cat lovers out there - France launched a kitty into space as well. In 1963, France put a male, black and white stray named Felix into a rocket capsule and sent him into the sky. He was recovered at splash down and lived to "meow" about it...
