Default Goodbye dear Joey Mac

Lost Joey this morning. The Avian Vet attempted to remove his tumour, but it was much worse than thought. So the legend that was up until recent weeks talking, and eating the house down, even eyeing up my ice cream, is now gone. Hard to take in, i think he was only approx 7yrs old. Personally im devastated and there surely cant be any salt water left in my body. But i cant be selfish, it was for his best. I miss you so much wee man!

I'm so sorry to hear of the devastating loss of your handsome little man. He was beautiful, such a character, and obviously had a very special bond with you.

You did everything you could have for him and I know he knew that

Now Joey is flying high above the rainbow bridge, free of pain, looking down on you. He'll never truly leave you as long as you keep him in your heart.

My best wishes to you during this difficult time.

Thanks folks. I have had 4 budgies in my lifetime, but this has been the hardest yet. My previous ones all died in their sleep. But Joey with his tumour he developed has been sad to watch. Then as the Avian Vet is 2 hours away from me, he spent the last two day and nights apart from me in the vets. Wish i could have been with him. Amazing how such a little bird can capture a large chunk of my heart. There will never be one like him. On a humorous note when i was sobbing goodbye to him on Tuesday, he scolded me! He also on the long car drive to the vets, made the noise he made when i took him up to his bedroom every night, the whole way. Colin.

Thank you for sharing with us Colin, about your beautiful Joey. Certain animals just leave an impression on our hearts a little deeper than others do. We’re always here for support.

Joey was a fantastic talker and imitator. Here was his repertoire:
" My name is Joey Mac"
" Poor wee Joe"
" Mr Budgie"
" Joey, Joey,Joey Mac"
" Whos a quer wee budgie?" ( Quer is a northern ireland word and roughly means great/good)
" Whos a quer eejit?"
" George"( we never figured out who George was)
" Poor wee George"
" Where`s poor Sooty?" ( our cat)
" Jue Jue" ( another mystery)
" Doreen"
" Whats the craic?"
" Hows about ya?"
" Hows about YOU?"
" Mr Mac"
" Alright Joey?"
" Whos a stupid budgie?" ( which i stopped him saying, dont know who taught him that)
"Right!"
" He was working on a new sentence which we will never know what it was.
He imitated:
Telephone
Kitchen Door
Smoke alarm battery
The car that drives in our park which makes a terrible noise

I'm so sorry you had to say goodbye to your special wee man. It sounds like he was quite a character and he will obviously be missed terribly. He will always be in your heart and memory.

Fly high and free sweet man.
