Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

Dogs on Mars?

Dogs on Mars?

I have certainly heard of Mars, the planet, and I am certainly familiar with dogs, but dogs on Mars?  The logistics themselves are incredibly fun to contemplate (and even more fun when contemplated with my niece and nephews who are all under 10 yrs old).  For example, NASA astronauts relieve themselves in space suits while wearing adult diapers.  First off, why has NASA not yet developed space suits that capture and recycle this waste?  I see a golden (and green) opportunity there.  Secondly, this goes on the “Cons” list for becoming an astronaut.  Back to the lucky dogs that are selected for these trips to Mars…in my mind they are certainly led by a border collie as they are the smartest dogs on this planet.  I suspect the team might also have a couple of labradors (duh!  They can follow commands well!).  A couple of Frenchies to add some pizazz to pre-flight photo ops, of course…but, I digress!  Back to the logistics, training a dog to relieve themselves in their space suit seems a pretty high bar.  I mean, currently, we rely on a dog’s apparent instinctual aversion to being in such proximity to their own excrement as the foundation of crate training!  Wow, overcoming this instinct in dogs for space travel, the anti-gravity pen and Tang?!  Surely they need a veterinarian for the space program?! Off to google where to get my ticket to Mars…and then to Amazon for some adult diapers...
