Written for David Heyes as part of his "Fizz at 50" project. "Gerty Goat Scuffer" (in case you wondered) is one of many nick-names we had for a much loved family dog - officially named "Heavy Hetty" from a character in an imaginative children's book of that name. (Mark Goddard, 2012)

The pervading thematic motive of the piece (heard from the outset), cheekily alludes to an (over) famous Saint-Saëns work for double bass (but no insult is intended to Hetty!). The increasingly roving tonality and unusually sudden shifts of key, combined with the use of jazz chords, combines to present a short but heartfelt tribute to a unique animal that provided untold pleasure to all she came into contact with, simply by just being "herself".
