Yes, guys, I meant Szarik the Alsatian which means Small Ball in Russian, the dog that the Polish tank crew keeps and extensively exploits to defeat Nazi Germans. If Hitler had known that Szarik would fight against his armies, he wouldn`t` have attacked Poland.
There were three Szariks who played the role, one of them is displayed in a permanent exhibition.
Reksio, a character from a cartoon. A good natured dog who is very helpful and caring.
And Cywil, the dog exploited in the communist police unit to catch criminals and track down lost kids.
I watched all of them, Szarik and Reksio were very good entertainment for young viewers. However, I didn`t like that Cywil police dog somehow - I don`t know why. Too realistic??
Jon, you mentioned Laika which travelled into space, but when I said communism, I meant only Polish one.
