When a respected surgeon decides to transplant human body parts into a stray dog, he creates a monster – drunken, profligate, aggressive and selfish. It seems the worst aspects of the donor have been transplanted as well. As his previously well-regulated home descends into riotous chaos, the doctor realises he will have to try to reverse the operation; but the dog isn’t so keen... Wild, uproarious and deliriously comic, Bulgakov’s short novel is at once a comment on the problems of 1920s Russia and a lasting satire on human nature.

Mikhail Bulgakov: A Dog's Heart (Unabridged)

1. Awoooooo- wo- wo- woo! O, look at me…

'My God!… Such weather… oh…'

'Enough for now…' The gentleman spoke haltingly…

2. There is absolutely no reason to learn…

'Where are you going, you shaggy devil?!'

The opposite carved door opened…

He disappeared to be replaced by a rustling…

The four fell silent again…

Philip Philippovich took the receiver off the hook…

3. Thinly sliced salmon and marinated eel…

Philip Philippovich rang and Zina came in…

'Here's what it is…'

4. But none of it happened.

As they passed the streetcar rails…

And then, on that terrible day…

The dog decided he felt the most hatred…

The implement flashed in the hands…

5. The notebook of Doctor Ivan Arnoldovich Bormenthal.

(There is a break in the writing…)

January 8. Late in the evening…

January 12. He placed his hands in his trouser pockets…

6. It was a winter night.

Philip Philippovich shook his head and spoke…

The man maintained a victorious silence…

Philip Philippovich compressed his lips…

'There he is!' Daria Petrovna shouted…

'What are you sloshing it all around the apartment for…'

7. 'No, no and no,' Bormenthal spoke insistently…

'You should read something, at least,' he offered…

'Oh, it looks like our apartment…'

8. No one knows what Philip Philippovich had decided…

Furballov swayed, opened his completely glazed eyes…

Philip Philippovich stopped him with a gesture…

Bormenthal rolled up his sleeves suddenly…

9. The showing promised by Doctor Bormenthal…

'Doctor, I'm begging you.'

Then the door opened ceremoniously…

The crime ripened and fell like a stone…

Epilogue

'I don't understand,' the man in black said…
