Default Honeydew...

I can't believe I'm writing this. Dewey was an active, playful bird today. He started playing with his toys for the first time. He perched on my shoulder for the first time.

Not too long ago I went to check on Dewey and found him at the bottom of his cage. I picked him up and he would just lay in his belly. He tried to fly, but he couldn't use his legs much and fell. I picked him up again, and he began to seize. His back arched, his head tilted back, and his wings spread out. He would release, then start again. We called our local vet who said it sounded like seizures. Eventually he stopped seizing, and was still.

We only had the little boy for 9 days, and even though this is so heart breaking and I'm sobbing, I know he had a good time with us. He loved to sing along to budgie videos, he loved his mirror, and he only just started to love being held and interacted with.

This has been a rough experience, and I only wish we were more experienced and knew what to do. He was our first bird, and I think we did all we could for him.

Goodbye Honeydew, I still can't believe this happened, and I just wish I could hear you sing in my ear one more time...

OH no, I am truly heartbroken for you both. I know how much you loved and cared for your sweet Dewey. When we choose to take home one of these special little birds they quickly attach themselves to our hearts. I know Honey Dew had the best time and loved you as equally as you did he. He is now with our Angel flock flying high and playing . He is free from pain, Memories will be shared and smiles will return when you think of him, the tears are from love please take care and I send you my sincere condolences.

Thank you, I'm thankful we were both there for him during this scary time. If I could do this over, I would always chose for him to possibly find comfort in my hands than to be alone and us find him like that. This hurts so much but we loved that little bird.

Oh, wow. That just hurts my heart. I was so happy when you rescued Dewey from his loneliness and even happier when you and Bryan turned out to be fantastic parronts.

All I can say is that Dewey was very lucky to find you two. He likely had some health issues (unfortunately, pet shop birds often do), but you guys gave him a real home and human flock that loved him dearly.

I am so sorry for your loss.

Oh Noelle I am so very sorry for the loss of Honeydew... Such a short life... This must be so heart breaking you both... But the good thing is that this little budgie had a wonderful mum and dad that loved him so very much..
Honeydew will be in your hearts forever he knew you loved him.. You will see him again one day..

Maybe when the time is right you might like to try again to love another little budgie there are a lot of budgies out there who need a loving home...

Sweet Honeydew sing a beautiful song and fly high up in the Sky...


Oh My darling my Honeydew
I've hungered for your touch
A long, lonely time

And time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine?

I need your love
I need your love
God speed your love to me

Lonely rivers flow to the sea, to the sea
To the open arms of the sea
Lonely rivers sigh, "Wait for me, wait for me
I'll be coming home, wait for me"

Whoa, my love
My darling
I've hungered, hungered for your touch
A long, lonely time

And time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine?

I need your love
I need your love
God speed your love to me

I'm so very sorry for your loss of darling little HoneyDew.

Dewey was a fortunate little boy to have had you to love and care for him, even if only for a short time. He was able to experience the joy and love of having a truly caring family and knowing he was treasured beyond compare.

Fly high to the Rainbow Bridge sweet boy; rest peacefully darling HoneyDew
It is because of Love we Grieve
and
Because of Love we are also comforted
in our Sorrow

In Memories, may you find Healing
In Time, may you find Peace
In the Power of Love, may you find Comfort.

It doesn't take long for these sweet little bird's to wiggle their way right into our heart's.
Very sorry that his time with you was so short, unfortunately just as with all other living thing's including us, there is no promise of tomorrow...

Rest in Peace, sweet handsome Honeydew. Keep his cute face and happy song close to your heart, and he will be with you forever. He left us much too soon. We were just getting to know and love him. Noelle, you filled his short life with so much love. I am so sorry for your loss.

I am so so sorry for your loss! Surely Dewey was happy in this short amount of time he was in your home..
Fly high and free, Dewey...

I'm so sorry to hear this... It's truly heartbreaking when they leave us too soon and at such a young age, you have my deepest sympathies.
Even though your Honeydew was with your for a very short amount of time, he knew how much he was loved and cared for.

Rest in peace, little Honeydew. You were much loved and will be missed.
