My Cody boy is gone
Today was a normal day for us.. normal until about 5 pm when I was doing evening bird stuff (fresh water, changing paper on bottom of cages).. my boys were out of their cages as usual. When I start this routine, they know it's time to come in. Cody wasn't there and he is always the first to come in. We all 3 looked and moved furniture, etc. We found him on the ground on his side. Sadly, in our panic to find him, we left the door open to the bird room. I will never ever forgive myself for what happened next. My daughter's dog Waylon rushed in and grabbed Cody. I'll never know if he was gone before that moment.
I love my Cody boy. He was the first.. Without him, none of the others would be with me. I can't believe it.
He was the sweetest and kindest of all my flock and he fussed about the rest of them all the time. He was the 'mentor' to the babies and to Ivan. I think they and Lemony are sad already.
I look at the cage with all the ramps and bridges for Cody... I can't believe it.
(I don't know how old he was.. not old enough)

I'm so sorry you have to endure such a loss. Please don't feel as if you had the fault. I think that if Cody was well enough to fly away from the dog, he most likely would have, unless the dog was really quick. Either way, there was nothing you could have done. Sometimes we have to let go of the "what-ifs" and just remember him as he was, a beautiful, active gentleman who always looked out for his flock.

He has had a wonderful and healthy life with you and the flock and I know he will be missed greatly. It may have been short, but all the time he spent with you was valued to you and to him and he knew that all the way till the end.

Cody, you were a special little boy and your mum and birdie friends will miss you tremendously. They will take comfort in knowing that you are the new star in the sky, the sunlight within the trees, and the soft rain on the grass, and that you will always be with them in their hearts and memories.

Rest well and fly high with the wind at your wings, Cody. Enjoy the Rainbow Bridge.

Hugs to you in this difficult time, Judy :hug:

Thank you, Starling Wings. Give Princess Mallorn an extra scritch (and maybe extra praise(as is her due) tonight from me, ok?

I'm so very sorry for your loss of Cody. :hug:

I know how much he meant to you and how very special he was in every way. Cody was the beginning of your love for budgies and he will always be with you in spirit.

Sweetie, Shelby and Scotty will invite Cody to join their flock.
Cody is healthy, happy and whole and can now fly easily and play at the Rainbow Bridge until the time comes you see him again.

You and your family are in my heart and prayers during this very difficult time.
Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free.
I'm following the path God laid you see.
I flew to Him when I heard His call
I had to go and leave you all.

I could not stay another day
To chirp, to climb, to preen, to play.
All things undone must stay that way
I found my peace at the close of day.

If my parting has left a void
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A song, a snuggle and many a kiss
Oh yes, these things I too will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I savoured much
My happy home, my Mommy’s touch.

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
Don't spend yours now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and peace to thee
God wanted me now; He set me free.

Thank you, everybody. I am beyond sad. Deborah, I hope Codes finds your little ones.. he will be very good to them. I'm glad Cody can fly now... he won't have to run everywhere :)

Oh I'm so sorry to read your post Judy.
Please don't beat yourself up over it you did nothing wrong and I'm sure the dog is also regretting it too.

You have Cody a great chance in life that he may not have had without you and I have no doubt he is watching over you now and enjoying his wings.

I know there are few words that can be said to ease your sorrow but please don't feel guilty or regret anything. Cody would have been happy exploring and enjoying his out of cage time and I'm sure it was quick and painless for him.
