“We stand today on the edge of a new frontier-the frontier of the 1960s, a frontier of unknown opportunities and perils-a frontier of unfulfilled hopes and threats.” ~ John Fitzgerald Kennedy
One of the Soviet space dogs’
puppy, Pushinka, was given by Khrushchev to Kennedy as a gift. One of Kennedy’s
dog, Charlie, took a liking to Pushinka, resulting in the birth of four pups
referred jokingly by Kennedy as “pupniks”.
