Elliot and Sushi Dance – Video

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.

The video was posted on YouTube on 20 March, 2010

      It is hard. I still miss Elliot and it’s been a year. Elliot was always very happy pup, but I think all Boxers are. Sushi had a harder life (she was a pet store/puppy mill dog and we were at least the third owners) but she did love Elliot.

        We rescued a puppy mill Westie – actually there were seven of them – and the one we took in for my sister is a major little neurotic mess. it’s going to take a lot of love and training to get her anywhere near a normal dog’s behavior, but she is immensely lovable nonetheless. Trent, what happened to Elliot? He was so young. If you don’t mind my asking.

          Our new little rescue seemed to be doing OK until I took her to puppy class on Monday. She was shaking and attacked any other dog that came close. She usually does great with our boxer pup.

          We’re not sure with Elliot. The vet thought it was Wobblers. He had been limping for a while but when he went down hill he quickly went to not being able to stand up.

            If only they could talk! We have no idea what happened to her in her past to cause her such terror. I’m so glad she does well with your boxer pup and I hope she makes progress toward socialization with other dogs. So sorry about Elliot. Poor little guy!!
