FareWell Dale
 
Dale passed this morning.

He was a handsome olive cinnamon with mostly English breeding. Poor Dale has had lung deficiencies since I first rescued him, and had been beat on about a week ago by Storm. My poor boy had gained a bald spot from the plucking/fight, making him look decidedly older than 4 years.

For the last week, he'd been in the isolation cage to hopefuly gain enough rest and food to recover, but it was just too much for him. Last night we sat together and watched TV, said Bye to his sibling Chip, and he curled up on the floor of his iso-cage. He never woke.

I will miss you Dale. You were indeed a blessing in disguise.

I'm sorry to hear this RIP Dale

You rescued him recently? did you quarantine him? I'd be very worried since you said Storm had been fighting with him, and he had to be isolated for a week. Why do you think a lung problem?

nah... Dale had been with me for 3.5 years, and Storm has been here... nearly a year now. When I vetted Dale originally they told me about the lung problems, but that the damage had been done already - to try not to aggrevate the situation, but that it would never get better and would likely degenerate with time. He has always been a tail-beater - to the point where his whole body moved when he breathed if he flew at all.

I'll miss the feather-head... but his loss was not unexpected.
