A greedy priest kills his pet dog after she gets caught eating one of his sausages, but instantly regrets it and writes an epitaph for her. Based on a never-ending rhyme that all Russian children know.

This was Yelena Prorokova's graduation work for the School of Advanced Studies for Screenwriters and Directors. Her artistic supervisor was Yuriy Norshteyn.

The first video above is nicer, but a few seconds from the very beginning are missing (it is the HD 35mm scan from the RuTracker animated film scanning project). The second video has interlacing.
