I am so sorry for Aster's loss.. He surely was a beautiful and clever budgie.. Don't blame yourself, sometimes things happen and we cannot do something to stop them..
My brother's doberman was spying Sakis all the time, he waited for the time to attack. Two times tried when Sakis was on my bro's shoulder. Then he putted Sakis back to his cage and then decided to give him to me..
Aster flies with all our budgies now and he's happy.. He would never blame you for such a thing, because he know that you loved him so much..
My thoughts are with you..

i am so sorry to hear about poor little Aster... i know exactly how you feel...
my thoughts will be with you and Aster *hugs*
everything happens for a reason, it just must have been his time, i am sure the life he lived was a full, happy and memorable one, even though it was not as long as some.... dont torture yourself by thinking of all the things you could have done, it dosent help... i know, i have just been there... last night as i was crying myself to bed, i glanced out the window at the spot where i laid my baby Queen to rest, and all of a sudden, i just had this calm loving feeling, that what Queen wanted was for me to celebrate her life, not mourn the loss of it...
so cry your eyes out, but then laugh at his memories...
Coming soon to a thread near you... SIGNATURE!
My heart goes out to you and I'm so sorry for your loss.
I know its hard not to blame ourselves and even harder to forgive, but this tragic accident was not your fault. I know how you feel because a good friend had just given me a kitten one year for my birthday. I only had her for a week when I got in an arguement with my boyfriend at the time and out of anger slammed the front door hard not knowing that my little Tamson was there and her head got caught in the door. She died almost instantly. I was heartbroken and couldn't forgive myself for a long time. But, I knew how much I loved her and started thinking on "the truth... I had no idea she was even near the door and it was just that..a tragic accident. I had not meant her harm.
Aster will remember you and his family.... in birdy heaven with many other people's birds, they will be flying with Aster looking down on their owners, who think about them everyday......and they think about them back.
Don't beat yourself up about it, it was an accident & if you could have stopped it and saved his life you would have, but you wasn't there when it happened.
