If you know our Dad, he is a PBS kind of guy. So today we got to go in the WABAC machine to travel back fifty years to find out about a cosmonaut named Yuri Gagarin. Gagarin left the bonds of mother earth at 0607 UTC on 12 April 1961. He was the first hoooman in space. His mission lasted 1 hour and 48 minutes.

Yuri Gagarin, 4 MAR 1964 - Sweden

From Wikipedia

We kept poking our noses in Dad's ribs and barking "Three years and five months after Laika the Dog went into outer space." That just proves how much braver we dogs are than a hoomens. A lot has changed since those days many moons ago, but the Collies bark about a brave cosmonaut that ventured into a brave new world called outer space. Dog Speed Essex & Deacon
