Default Winnie the Chirpydoo

It's only been a week, but it feels like a lifetime without my precious golden sillykins. He was my first budgie...well, my first to take care of myself. My family has always had one. I got him as a Christmas present (slightly early) in 2012. I named him Winnie like Winnie the Pooh because of his bright yellow color. He was my best friend and got me through many rough times. And yes, he's the sweetie in my avatar.

He passed last week, the morning after I took him to the vet for a respiratory infection. Obviously, the treatment was too late...it seemed to happen so quickly. It seemed like it because, as we know, budgies are very good at hiding their illnesses. His sweet life was taken far too quickly...but as with most times of difficulty and pain, there is learning. So now I am more aware of the warning signs. My other 4 budgies are my babies, and I will now continue to love and care for them, but this time, with more knowledge than before.

Winnie, you're in my heart forever and always. ♥ I know you are awaiting me on the Rainbow Bridge. (That poem made me cry so much.)



Winnie will also live on with a bit of fame. One of my photos of him is going to be in the Cornell University of Ornithology's avian text book, edition 2016. He will be in the chapter about feather pigmentation. : ) I wish he could've been around to see himself in the book...but it is wonderful that other people learning about birds can see him. I'm still coping with the loss...but I am trying to get stronger. Looking at the photos I have of him though...really tugs at my heart.

Rest in Peace, Winnie.

I am so very sorry for the loss of Winnie. He loved you so very much. Remember all of your loving memories hold them in your heart. You will be with Winnie one day. God is looking after him and Winnie is watching over you from up in Heaven. We all share your pain and understand the tears that fall.. I understand as i have been through the same thing like a lot of the other members here on Talk Budgies... The pain does ease but you never forget our little ones we have lost... Your tears fall cause you loved your budgie so much and miss him .....We are here if you need to talk to us.... I made up this pome for you..... You were a good mum to Winnie...

REST IN PEACE LITTLE ONE FLY HIGH IN THE SKY AND SING A BEAUTIFUL SONG.

Winnie you were my sweet little one
sent down from God's heaven sky's to you
I have no idea why
you were the sunshine of my life
you were so special to me in every way
You would run around
and play each and every day
When I came home you flew over to me
from Across the room you look up at me
from your short little world he sees
Our unforgettable love will remain forever
Winnie You are my sunshine of my heart in every way....

I am terribly saddened to hear of your loss. They do leave us too quickly, but I know that every second he was with you was treasured to you, and he appreciated and loved you for all the wonderful days he spent with you.
It is always difficult to find our way out of the shadows of grief but Winnie's little yellow spirit, shining forever bright, will lead you out of it. He will be admired by many in the new book, also!
Rest in peace and fly high, darling yellow boy.

I'm so sorry you no longer have lovely Winnie. Know that we understand how you feel if that's any help at the moment.

Sweet Winnie, you will be missed and also remembered very fondly.

No matter the amount of time spent with us the pain and grief are still the same. Winnie was a lovely budgie who won your heart. time will help heal the ache you experience now I have been through this as many other members have here also. We all share your pain and understand the tears. Winnie is now free from pain, but is still there with you but in memories and pictures how lucky you are to have them.
Fly high sweet Winnie and hugs and love to you.

Thank you all so much for your wonderfully supportive and sweet words, and also the loveliness in poetry. *hugs* I only just joined this forum, but I already feel a wonderful sense of community and love. : ) You all speak so much truth...so thank you again.

Winnie's resting place is under one of our lovely trees in the backyard. Dad says that we'll pick out some yellow flowers to plant around it, to commemorate him. ♥

I'm so sorry to hear this... It's never easy to say goodbye to a much beloved little friend, you have my deepest sympathies.
Time will heal the deep pain you're feeling and soon all the memories of the good times you had with Winnie will give comfort.
Your precious boy will continue to live on in your heart.

Rest in peace, sweet Winnie. You were much loved and will be missed.
