Since i noticed how many people have lost special babies close to them i decided to make a thread so we can talk about and post pictures of those who are long gone.
First My Kika, i don't have many pictures of her since i got her like 13 years ago. I came to canada and i had to leave her in brazil, i promised her i'd go back to get her but she died before i had the chance to even say good bye properly. Yesterday i put both her pictures and a feather i have of her in a picture frame beside my bed she will forever have the most special place in my heart.
Kika & Her mate John (she's the light green budgie)
Their son Kyku & his girlfriend Lindinha
My Little Puffy.
My first budgies ever in Canada, the day i got them. My two little girls Hope & Baby. Hope was jsut the sweetest of them all. She loved to preen my hair and stay on my shoulders while i walked around the house. Baby didn't like me much, she just stayed in the cage but she sure was gorgeous looked a bit like my little Kara.
And here is Kiko who's Kiki's ex and Angel they were exactly alike except Kiko was a boy and Angel was a girl i put their picture together just because i promised i would get Angel a friend but she died before i had the chance to get Kiko & Kiki So here are both my babies. Angel who i tried desperatly to save, she was taking meds and when she looked better, i came home one day and my mom told me she was gone.. I felt bad not being able to be there for her when she needed me the most.
How about you guys? any special babies that have gone to Rainbow bridge that you want to show or talk about?

I am sorry you have lost so many special friends But I also think it's very healthy to talk about them, and remember them through their honor
Unfortunately, I have lost a few friends as well. It's very saddening when I do talk about them because I remember the heartache and the pain of losing them. I tried to do everything that I could do, and it just never seemed to help. But as they say, "It's better to have loved and lost, then not loved at all" I find myself saying, "It's better to have tried and lost, then to not have tried at all."
My 6 beloved budgies have all passed, and so has my dear Diamond Dove, Daisy. It seems that with each story of them, I am way beyond my control, and there's nothing that I can do to save them. Even with what I do, all I can do is sit and wait.
I won't post up pictures, as everytime I do go through my old thread, I tend to get very emotional, and end up reading all of my old threads. That can take a while. But I will post up my signature, as I've placed in the very best pictures of them, and the pictures that make me say, "Wow, how beautiful."
My 7 birdies are now my angels. I feel very lucky to have known them, as they really did change my world for the better
I'm so sorry you lost so many babies The pictures really do make me say "wow they really are beautiful"especially Grace and Suzie, they really were breath taking. It's so amazing how such little creatures can bring us so much joy into our lives. I'm sure they all had good and happy lives with you. Peanut sure looks so spoiled and happy everytime i see a picture or a video of him, shows what a great mommy you were to all your other seven babies
Just today I came across a picture of Snowball, one of my first budgies. She was in her bath tub, just sitting in it. She loved to play in the water. It's very hard when I think about her now. We lost her this past February. Blue died two years ago.
You guys might think this is silly, but we keep their picture along with their first toy.
I still miss them both so much.
The budgie in my signature, Herbie. We got her when i was 5 years old, and had her put to sleep when i was 18 years old. I was an only child, so she was like my little sister. I'm 26 now, and i still think about her loads. She's burried below my bedroom window in the garden. I can't explain how much i love her, and it's weird to think i'll never see her again.
Herbie (It's a shame cameras weren't so great back in those days):

My husband still talks about our first budgie Bert. Bert adored Gary to the point where Gary would have to fend him off because he always wanted to sit on him. He was a gorgeous cinnamon yellow face sky blue. We miss Bertie and little Basil who we never got to know. Here's one of Bert.
My very first dog had to be put this past February. I still miss her so much and think about her everyday. I got her when i was 4 or 5 or so. I love her and miss her so much. She went down hill so fast too. One week she was running around, the next week she couldn't even walk almost. The thing that hurts me the most is that i never say bye to her in the vets office. I couldn't look at her. I still regret not patting her or giving her hug or something. That's the main thing that still makes me really sad. One of the reasons why we got a dog was because i was scared of dogs so my mom decided to get me a dog. So we went to pick out a dog and i was crying at this point because they're were so many scary dogs around. And Rosie came up to me and put her head on my lap(we were sitting on the floor) and then slowly i started liking her. And she was my best friend. She helped so much, getting over my fear of dogs and everything, and i couldn't even give her a hug or a pat on the head when she needed it the most.
This is a pic of me and her when we were both a lot younger.
And her on the last week of her life...
And another one of her the year before she died...
Another loss i had was Pongo. My very first budgie. I had a picture of him but i can't seem to find it.
RIP my little Snowpea. He was the most gorgeous budgie I have ever seen in my life (even if I am a bit buyest ). Snowpea was always happy to see me and was so lovable. He was literally tame in about 5 minutes, that is how much trust he had in me.
I gave Snowpea everything I could, but it would never be as much as he has given me. Snowpea won me about $500 of prizemoney because of all the photo comps. he won. But more than that he gave me things and feeling that money can't buy and it's these things, I will cherish forever.
I was devastated when my first budgie died. I remember him well though. His name was Aero, and he was a beautiful dark blue with those speckled black and white feathers going all down his back and his wings. I only had him for 8 months, and I think he may have just died of old age. You know pet shops, they won't tell you important things like age when you buy animals.
I don't have any photos of him, because the only camera we had in the whole house back in '04 that was in use was a disposable camera I got for Christmas, which was two months before he left to go to Rainbow Bridge. I remember taking a few pictures of him, and then forgetting to develop the photos. A few weeks after Aero left me, I found the camera and got the photos developed. For some reason, though, none of the ones of him developed properly
I had him from 28-6-03 - 14-2-04
Still miss you loads little buddy xxx
