Early in February of 2014 we lost our Boxer Elliot Carter McDonald. yes, he was named after the famous American Composer, Elliott Carter. Only a little over a month later we lost our Shih Tzu, Sushi. Sushi had heart issues that became much worse after Elliot passed away.
Today I discovered this video. I had recorded it almost exactly 5 years ago – we brought Elliot home on Valentine’s Day. Elliot was just a little thing. He was sometimes able to entice Sushi to play when he was this size,though later he couldn’t.
So This is Elliot’s and Sushi’s Dance as set to my Prelude in E Major. The music is part of my 24 piano preludes in all major and minor keys.
Note 1 – I had almost forgotten the time when Elliot wasn’t much bigger than Sushi. It brought a smile to my face and a tear to my eye.
Note 2 – I’m sure you can count and know he was only 4 when we lost Elliot. Far, far too young.
