When we lost our beloved 8yr old Shih Tzu in August 2021 I found myself sat at the piano in an attempt to escape the pain of her loss.

The whistle I had for her…three notes which represented the three syllable of her name…kept coming back to me over and over. Playing them let through more and more notes…eventually a melody…and an ending which in some way represents what it was like to say goodbye to her that night, when all we wanted was for her to get better so we could take her home. The three notes of her whistle became the first and last three notes of what transpired to become this piece.

The piece captures her playful character, as well as the pain we all feel without her. She was and always will be truly beautiful soul who will be forever missed and never forgotten.
