Koch posted to social media, along with a video of her dog, LBD, going wild as the astronaut returned home to Galveston.

"Not sure who was more excited", Koch posted with the video. "Glad she remembers me after a year".

The 40-year-old electrical engineer from Livingston had been living on the International Space Station since March, 2019, and broke the record for the longest spaceflight by a woman.

"I wish I had enough time on there to get bored, but not all", she explained, during her first live TV interview since returning to Earth on Thursday.

"Having the opportunity to be up here for so long is truly an honor", Koch said of her history-making accomplishment back in December, according to Space.com. She also said it's good to be back home and she is enjoying her favourite things from food to hanging out at the beach.

Koch, who left Earth in March a year ago, took part in the first all-female spacewalk in October with colleague Jessica Meir.

In the sweet clip, LBD, which stands for Little Brown Dog, can be seen pawing at the closed door and wagging her tail as Koch and her husband approach.
