NASA astronaut Christina Koch reunites with dog after a year in space
Astronaut Christina Koch had a heartwarming reunion with her dog after spending a year in International Space Station.
A NASA astronaut's pup was out-of-this-world excited when her owner returned from nearly a year in space.
Michigan native Christina Koch, who just returned from her record-breaking 328 days in orbit, received a heartwarming welcome home from her dog when she arrived at her home in Texas.
In a video shared on Koch's Twitter, her dog can be seen pawing at the door with her tail wagging at full speed as Koch and her husband approach. When the door opens, her pooch, named Little Brown Dog, or LBD, can't contain her enthusiasm and is all over Koch.
"Not sure who was more excited," Koch captioned the video posted on Twitter. "Glad she remembers me after a year!"
The Grand Rapids native returned from 328 days in orbit Feb. 6 after setting the record for the longest single spaceflight by a woman.
