Quote of the Day

Kindness. The only possible method when dealing with a living creature. You'll get nowhere with an animal if you use terror, no matter what its level of development may be. That I have maintained, do maintain and always will maintain. People who think you can use terror are quite wrong. No, no, terror is useless, whatever its colour – white, red or even brown! Terror completely paralyses the nervous system.
  ~ Mikhail Bulgakov,
Heart of a Dog


  1. Interest quote, and so very true. It makes me think of old horse training methods vs. the new methods. Much has changed and the best change of all, is people's attitude on training methods.

    1. I agree. This book, The Heart of a Dog by Bulgakov, is very interesting. It's basically a fantasy in which a scientist finds a way to turn a dog into a man and it's all about the experiences that this man has and the thoughts he has about the human experiences.

  2. I'll have to check out that book--thanks for sharing.
