Sadly passed 3 nights ago after 12 & a half happy years.
I was away on holiday at the time. A mate of mine was looking after Rosie and her companion, Blueky at his place. He decided to wait until I got back home in order to break the news, rather than ruin my holiday by telling before. I'm glad he waited.
It's hard to believe Rosie's gone. She went through 3 house-moves and countless holiday-stays at various locations. I'm so grateful that she stayed with me for so long.
However, she decided it was now time to move on and go join her 1st companion, Rocky....who left us just over 9 years ago.
I'm so sorry for your loss... It's never easy to say the final goodbye to our beloved pets. You have my condolences. For you to have had Rosie's company for more than 12 years is truly a blessing, try to take comfort in the fact that she had a long and happy life with you.
Cherish the good times and happy memories you had with Rosie, she will always live in your heart.
Rest in peace, Rosie. You were much loved and will be missed.
RIP sweet Tito (Summer 2008 - January 17th 2013).
You are missed and never will be forgotten.
I'm sorry for the loss of Rosie it is always hard to say goodbye to our special friends.Try to remember the wonderful Memories that you have of Rosie she really loved you and you loved her to. You are so very luckly to have had a budgie live to 12 and a half years that is a very long time for a Budgie to live... Roise had a wonderful life with you...

A little Poem for you...
By the edge of a woods, at the foot of a hill,
Is a lush, green meadow where time stands still.
Where the friends of man and woman do run,
When their time on earth is over and done.
For here, between this world and the next,
Is a place where each beloved creature finds rest.
On this golden land, they wait and they play,
Till the Rainbow Bridge they cross over one day.
No more do they suffer, in pain or in sadness,
For here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness.
Their limbs are restored, their health renewed,
Their bodies have healed, with strength imbued.
They romp through the grass, without even a care,
Until one day they start, and sniff at the air.
All ears prick forward, eyes dart front and back,
Then all of a sudden, one breaks from the pack.
For just at that instant, their eyes have met;
Together again, both person and pet.
So they run to each other, these friends from long past,
The time of their parting is over at last.
The sadness they felt while they were apart,
Has turned into joy once more in each heart.
They embrace with a love that will last forever,
And then, side-by-side, they cross over… together.
