In "Heart of a Dog" by Mikhail Bulgakov, we are presented with a satire of Russian society in the early 20th century. In the story, a Russian dog is transformed into a human through a serious of surgeries, and with a "dog's mindset", this individual is able to thrive in a corrupt Russian society. One of the main purposes of this novel was to discredit the Russian public and demonstrate their inability to see truth and gain real intelligence about the world around them. Like dogs, many Russian people living during this time simply believed in everything the government told them, and they were completely submissive and unable to think on their own. Sharikov, the dog who becomes a man, is the epitome of a narrow-minded Russian citizen who is submissive to his government, cares little for other people, and does not want to see the truth that is right in front of his eyes.
