  • Description

    Every dog has his day, but the people of Villepinte - the dog lovers among them - are determined that the day of Laika the 'sputnik' dog will go on for ever.

    There were tearful scenes of affectionate rememberance as loving owners replenished the flower jars on the graves of their dearly loved departed ones, prior to the ceremony of the unveiling of a memorial to this popular hero, Laika.

    The distinguished guest invited to perform the opening ceremony was dressed in a most becoming woolen gown conforming to the latest short hem-line fashion trend - but he (or she) appeared rather shy as the party proceeded to the memorial. After one or two abortive attempts, the cord was pulled, and the flag tumbled to the ground revealing the touching phrase
    Laika - a martyr to science
    Afterwards we understand the distinguished guest was regaled with a feast of.....nuts.
