Default R.I.P. Sparky

R.I.P. Sparky-49632_sparky2_122_557lo.jpg Nov. 2013 - 22nd Aug. 2016

Sparky sadly crossed the Rainbow Bridge this morning. I am currently away from home for a few days, and had left Sparky and her companion, Maisie, with a lad who is an upstairs neighbour of a good friend of mine, and has a budgie of his own.

Sparky had been a bit wheezy in her breathing recently, but had completed a week's course of antibiotics 2 weeks ago that I got from the vets, and was sounding better & better each day. Apart from how she sounded, she was as happy and active as I could've wished for....flying about the room & spending more time out of her cage than in it.

Everything was fine with her up until last night. However, I got a phone call from my friend early this evening, who broke the news to me.

I'm so gutted to have lost her after less than 3yrs. She was the tamest budgie I've had. The lad who was looking after her is apparently in bits about it, and feels guilty....(I know what it's like to have someone else's pet pass away when I've been looking after it). I've passed a message onto him, saying that there was nothing he could've done about it, that it was just unfortunate timing and not to beat himself up.

I'm due to return home on Thursday. Safe to say, I'm not looking forward to it

Fly free, Sparky

I'm so sorry to hear of your sudden loss of Sparky

It's never easy to lose a pet, least of all when it is unexpected. I hope that time will heal you from grief in time as you adjust to this loss.

I'm sure that Sparky is now flying free above the Rainbow Bridge, forever happy and healthy.

Rest in peace, Sparky, and fly high. You will be missed.

Hugs to you during this time of grief

I know it is such a difficult thing to go through, then being away makes it hard too. Please accept my heartfelt condolences for your loss of Sparky.

Thank you for your kind comments.

I was just thinking....earlier today before I learned what had happened, I was in a public park that has a large aviary. It's full of parakeets, conures & cockatoos. There was also 1 budgie....a hen, (same as Sparky) and almost identical in colour....virtually a twin! I remember she just sat there staring back at me....and being very chilled-out, just like Sparky. Rather ironic, given what I've since learned.

I'm so sorry for your loss, and that you had to be away from home when it happened. Maybe God sent that little bird that looked like Sparky to comfort you. Fly high sweet girl and rest peacefully.

I'm very sorry for your loss of little Sparky.
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 fly, 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.


Modified from poem written by: Janice M. Fair-Salters
Fly high, soar free sweet Sparky; Rest peacefully now little one.

Memories are lovely once the hurt and pain settles.
