Default Sweet little Aster is gone 12-16-07

I can't believe it...I keep thinking I am having a horrible dream but I know its not. I just can't believe it. On Sunday it was like any other day I open the cage door and let Aster and Lily perch on a rope that I have on the outside of the cage so they can look around and play. Sometimes they would flutter to the ground and I would go and pick them up to put them back. We have a dog Zorro and he is a good dog...he knew not to touch them...Aster has flown right in front of him and Zorro never tried to go for him...but this one stupid time I'm not looking, distracted, next thing I know Zorro is dropping Aster at my feet....I can't even describe what happened. I don't blame Zorro he is a dog, he doesn't know better, I blame myself so much...I've read the warnings, the stories, I knew better, but I guess you never think that will happen. All I think about is what if I did this or that, but I can't bring him back.

I feel so horrible for Lily, I just got a big cage for them and Snowdrop and Buttercup (who are quarantened) to play in and now she is in that big cage all alone. and my heart breaks when she calls for him.

Aster was so wonderful, so much courage, he was the smallest, the bravest, the bossest. He was my first parakeet, my first bird, a wedding gift from my husband. He was so sweet and giving, smart too! He learned how to cat whistle which was the funniest thing. I loved him SO much! I feel so ashamed that I didn't protect him like I should have.

I can't take back my negligence, but I can only hope he is in a better place free to fly where he wants and eat all the millet he can take. I also hope he might know how much he meant to me.

REST IN PEACE MY BABY
I'm so sorry!

I am so sorry to hear about this very unfortunate accident. You certainly did not mean for this to happen to your precious little guy Aster. My thoughts are with you.....

May he rest in peace.

That is indeed tragic. I wonder why Zoro brought him to you? Could he possibly have thought that the bird needs retrieving?

RIP Sweet Aster. He was a beautiful bird. Fly free little budgie...

From what you wrote, I don't think Zorro killed him on purpose. Perhaps the bird flew to the ground and Zorro brought him to you, thinking you wanted him back, and killed him by accident.

Im so sorry!!!
It wasnt your fault though,
and perhaps Zorro was trying to play with him?
Or maybe something happened before hand.

Im so sorry.

He was such a beautiful bird... Don't worry. I did a similar thing with my budgie. I had them downstairs and there was a fire going in the fireplace, and he flew in.
No one would have expected that to happen. I'm so sorry. Aster seemed like he lived a wonderful life with you.

RIP Aster.

Hugs,

I am so sorry for your loss.

If there is anything good that can come out of this, then maybe it can be a warning for others. There are so many videos out there of dogs and cats with birds...but you just never know.
