Default Laker

Laker passed away Thursday morning - September 18th after a short illness. As soon as I saw he was ill I took him to the Vet's. The Avian Vet tried to help with injections of fluids and antibiotics but it didn't help.


Laker is gone & everyone in our home is trying to cope. His buddy Rio is very confused. At least with another pet you can redirect your attention but in Rios case he really depended on Laker. Now Rio needs us.

Laker passed away in the early hours. I was with him throughout the night. When I slept I dreamed of him. During the night he was quiet and helpless. He was still beautiful as I wrapped him in tissue. It hurt a lot to do that. So many times I wanted to just hold him but now I do not want to. We don't have our own backyard as we live in a high rise. He has been laid to rest in a city park meadow near-by where the land has been allowed to be natural once more.

I am turning all my energy & emotions into trying to remember the laughter & the beauty this wonderful animal gave to us & anyone he came across. It would be a shame that we remember him only in sadness.

I know he had a good time with us & that he really cared for us. When one of us was away he would visit their haunts & always flew with excitement to greet us on our return. The morning before he died he was running up my husbands arm to sit on his shoulder & keep us company as we worked. He & Rio would fly all over with fun & grace.

We loved him. His passing will not affect that. I never knew how long he would be with us & I was taken by surprise. I try to think of his short bout of suffering as a blessing.

Oh, I am so sorry hno: - I can't imagine how you, your family and Rio must be feeling. It is a blessing that he had a short illness, but that doesn't make the pain any less. Fly free, beautiful Laker.

I am so sorry Laker was one of the budgies that I truly adored. I would come across his photo in the Budgie Gallery and be fascinated with his beauty.

Rest in Peace Laker, you were truly loved
