Sunny, My Sunshine Boy’s Story
It was a typical bin-o’-budgies at one of the big-box petstores. After trying, unsuccessfully, to locate a breeder in the Maryland/Virginia area who would return my phone calls or emails, I gave up and began scouting every pet store within a 25 mile radius looking for my new friend.
When I finally settled on which store I was happiest with, there were two beautiful little boys who caught my eye.
With great difficulty, I finally decided that although I wanted them both I should choose only one.
Darling Sunny came home with me that day. Not too many days later the little fellow had barely moved or chirped and I knew he needed his buddy so I went back for Shelby.
The minute I walked in the door with the little pet-store box, I could hear Sunny was chirping upstairs. This was practically a first! Then, little Shelby answered him.
As soon as they were reunited it was as if Sunshine flooded the room. The Sunshine Boys were back together and as happy as any two little budgies could be.
They slept together on the same swing for their first two weeks together.
Finally, when they realized that it was REAL and neither would disappear overnight, they chose to sit on identical swings, side by side to sleep each and every night.
Shelby and Sunny did everything together, playing with the same toy, rubbing their heads or beaks on the same perch at the same time,
swinging, sleeping, you name it and the Sunshine Boys were inseparable. Of course they had little brotherly spats from time to time but
usually it was a rollicking adventure of games of tag in the flight cage, wild flights around the room during out-of cage time and
sharing their happiness through constant budgie talk.
When Shelby flew to the Rainbow Bridge, little Sunny was sad and depressed.
Sweet Sparky did everything he could to help cheer Sunny up.
In time, Sunny and Sparky became close and spent each day playing together.
you are a precious little budgie with the cutest "baby" budgie face.
Fly high, soar free with your brother Shelby.
Sparky and I both miss you and will love you always.
