Five Russian Dog Stories

Five Russian Dog Stories

Five Russian Dog Stories presents touching narratives from three giants in Russian literature. Some heart-warming, some tear jerking, none will easily be forgotten. Turgenev’s Mumu is rescued from drowning by a mute serf, Gerasim, and quickly becomes his closest friend and comforter until Gerasim’s mistress intervenes with tragic consequences. Shchedrin’s Trezor is the perfect embodiment of canine fidelity, carrying out his duties to the letter, despite being chained up, badly treated and sometimes not even fed. Chekhov’s Kashtanka, when lost, is taken in by a circus clown and trained for an act in the ring. However, she prefers to return to her former abusive master, sitting in the audience at her first performance, rather than remain with her new caring, thoughtful owner. These stories have long been held in high esteem, tugging at the readers’ heartstrings. When Turgenev died in 1883 a wreath was sent to the grave of ‘the author of Moomoo’ by British Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
