Chupip is on a distinguished road
Default My little girl Pip

I lost my baby girl Pip Saturday morning. I miss her so much.

Friday night, she was her usual active self, flying around, chirping happily and sitting in my collar. The next morning, she woke up a little after 8am feeling not so hot and blinking slowly. Her breathing started to become shallow and her legs started to weaken. I held her and called her vet and around 15 other offices and animal hospitals, none of whom had avian vets in on Saturday. Finally we found an avian vet 45 minutes away and left immediately. I put her mate Chupey into the car and my mom drove while I cradled Pip in my hand. We got there by 11am and I handed Pip to a tech, who took her into an exam room and put her on oxygen. The vet came in to tell me that the physical exam hadn't revealed anything, so the next step would be to take an x-ray. She left for a moment and then returned to tell me that Pip hadn't made it to the x-ray table. I burst into tears. Until that morning, Pip had always been super healthy and energetic. The vet told me it would be best for Chupey to check if Pip had something contagious. Pip had been laying eggs, and the vet discovered that an egg follicle had ruptured and caused an internal infection. I don't know when this had happened, but by the time she showed signs, it was already too late. It all seemed to happen in the space of a couple hours.

I love Pip so much. I just can't believe her spirit isn't in her little body anymore. She was, by my best guess, only around 2.5 years old. I only had her for 1.5 years, which could never be enough, but we became so close during that time. She was such an adventurous, loving little bird with a huge personality. She was always on my shoulder or sitting in my collar. I feel like a big piece of my heart has gone missing. I know I'll always miss her, but I'm trying to be grateful for the time I was lucky enough to have with her and trying to take comfort in the fact that although it was shorter than everyone wanted, she had a comfortable and very happy life and brought joy to everyone who met her.

So sorry to hear about the loss of your Pip. She is such a little darling and I am so sad that she had to leave you, her flock human, and Chupey so soon.

It is never easy when they pass so suddenly without a hint of any warning or warnings that come too late. You did what you could by taking her to the vet as a last minute emergency. You would have never known what was really happening and sadly, it is that feeling of helplessness that often accompanies moments like this.

Take the time to grieve and give as much love as you can to Chupey. Once again, I am so sorry for your loss.

I'm so sorry to hear this... It's never easy to say goodbye to a much beloved and special little friend, you have my deepest sympathies.
Time will ease the pain from no longer having your girl around, and hopefully soon the memories of the many good times you had with Pip will give you comfort. She will continue to live on in your heart.
Be sure to give your Chupey some extra TLC during this difficult time as you both adjust to the new reality.

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

Pip was a gret looking budgie. The yellow on her top is very good. This can happen. A budgie can get sick and pass before you can get to a vet. If you live in a large city, there are 24 hour vet hospitals that are open when it is not regular hours for a vet to be open. In a smaller town, it can be imposible to find help when needed. You tried to help Pip. She just went faster than you could find a vet,

I'm so sorry for your loss of beautiful little Pip.
I thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new.
I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too.
I think of you in silence. I often speak your name.
Now all I have is memories, and your picture in a frame.
Your memory is my keepsake, with which Iíll never part.
God has you in his keeping.
I have you in my heart.

Fly high and free sweet Pip; rest peacefully little one.

I'm so sorry to hear of your beautiful Pip's passing.

You took such wonderful care of her and showered her with so much love, I know she knew that. We never know when our little ones will leave us, but when they do, I know they leave a big hole in our hearts.

Take time to grieve and mourn for the loss of darling little Pip, give Chupey a little extra TLC, too, to help him during his own sense of loss.

In time, you'll be left with the shining memories of her time on earth with you.

My thoughts and best wishes are with you and Chupey during this time.

Fly high and free over the rainbow bridge, Pip. Rest in peace among the stars.
