What happens when a mom and daughter astronaut team, actually team up in the space program with two fun-loving yellow Labrador Retriever pups and a mixed breed dog named Wolfie? Is there dog and human joy in space? Yes, when the dogs help to save the space program because every dog needs a job the dog loves.
These are working dogs that love to play at work. And the human astronauts also love their job and their family life with the dogs. The dogs, like their humans, have a life purpose, and they fulfill their mission, get rewarded, and have fun back with their human and dog families realizing they have gone to space and back...and helped to make space travel fun and safer with their keen intelligence. It takes a retriever to find and fetch what the astronauts need and keep their tales and tails wagging.
In a household and space center filled with nipping and yipping yellow Labrador retrievers who prowl at night, an astronaut mother-daughter team works, plays, and flies into space together with their immortal yellow Labrador retrievers and one Rottweiler-Shepherd mix.
There''s also a mother who’s an astronaut and space medicine physician and her daughter, a flight mission specialist. Both make a nifty team working with their yellow Labrador retrievers Gus and Lonnie and Wolfie, the half Rottie, half Shepherd puppy, in the outer limits of the space program.
This family team of mother and daughter astronauts includes immortal space twin, and two wannabee free yellow Labrador retrievers who want, like their humans, to take the latest space shuttle for a ride to rescue the space program. Every dog has a job in this adventure, humorous science fiction novel for kids of all ages.
When some characters even think of selling defective parts to cut costs, the other-worldly yellow Labrador retrievers, Gus and Lonnie are on their tail. In the astronaut’s yellow Labrador retrievers community also is the Earth-born outer-space immortal dog, Wolfie, the Rottweiler-German Shepherd mix, formerly a library pup who can teach these astronauts new ways to rescue the space program and themselves just by being what he is—a five-month-old big doggie adopted by the space program as their mascot to keep the slightly older, but still adolescent twin space yellow Labrador retrievers busy.
