Default RIP my best friend, our beloved Teo

I really didn't think even in my worst nightmare that I will be here not even 6 months after my last budgie passed away... Especially not writing about my favorite one. I know it's wrong having favorites but we did.

His name was Teo, he was only 6 years old. We bought him and instantly fell in love with him. He was already widowed two times and then for the third time 6 months ago when Pero died.
He always lived with a flock but was really bonded with us and tame, gave us kisses, fly to us...
He vomited on and off since we got him and took him to the vet couple of times but every test was fine and he was really cheerful little fellow.
We did notice he was acting strange 2 months ago, he was sleeping more, eating more so we took him to the vet again but once again all the test turned out fine and vet recommended probiotics. After that he was fine again untill last Thursday when I first saw him sitting on the floor. He was down there but would soon hop back up and went back to playing with his friends. This was going on for the entire weekend and on Monday we visited vet again. At that point, overnight he was really weak but vet was optimistic, gave us meds and minerals, told us to keep him warm and AGAIN redid the tests.
He was on the floor most of the day, he only tried to fly when my husband came home from work, like he was happy to see him. After that he was getting worse and soon couldn't even stand anymore. We held him in our hands near a radiator and he was looking at us the whole time but couldn't move. His breathing got slow and after we said our goodbyes he was gone. It wasn't until then we realized how skinny he was.

I didn't want to take him to necropsy so we never found out what killed him, we decided to bury him in our garden, at the same place we grew millet for him.
I put him in a box with millet which he loved, his favorite cup and pictures of him with his flock so they can be together. It was really painful.

I'm so sad

I'm so very sorry for your loss of darling little Teo.

I'll lend you,
for a little while, a bird of mine, He said.
For you to love while he lives,
and mourn when he is dead.

It may be six or seven years, or maybe only three
But will you, till I call him back, take care of him for me?
He'll bring his charms to gladden you, and shall his stay be brief,
You'll have his lovely memories as solace for your grief.
I cannot promise he will stay, as all from earth return,
But there are lessons taught down there I want this bird to learn.

I've looked the whole world over in my search for teachers true,
And from the throngs that crowd life's lanes, I have selected you.
Now will you give him all your love - not think this labor vain,
Nor hate me when I come to call, to take him back again.
I fancied that I heard them say, 'Dear Lord, thy will be done.'
For all the joy this bird shall bring, the risk of grief we'll run.
We'll shower him with tenderness and love him while we may,
And for the happiness we've known, forever grateful stay.

And should the angels call for him much sooner than we planned,
We'll brave the bitter grief that comes, and try to understand.

Modified from poem by Edgar A. Guest

Fly high and soar freely sweet Teo; rest peacefully now wee man.

I'm so sorry your sweet little boy has passed on He was obviously a much loved part of the family and will be very missed.

He will always be with you in your heart, even if you can't see him. Hugs to you during this difficult time.

Rest in peace, Teo Fly high above the stars.

I'm extremely sorry for your loss. By your description, it sounds like he was suffering from Avian gastic yeast, which often escapes detection. Stay strong and keep Teo in your heart.

Iím so sorry for your loss. These tiny birds easily get into our hearts and quickly become very much loved family members. Teo was obviously a very special little guy and itís clear he was very loved and will be missed dearly. Iím sure you have a lot of precious memories and in time, when your heart isnít quite as fragile, I hope you can remember them with a smile. Thinking of you and sending lots of love.

Fly high and free over Rainbow Bridge sweet Teo.

I’m so very sorry for your loss of your precious Teo. It’s so hard losing a favorite beloved animal family member. I understand.

In response to your above post, remember that just because a budgie has been vomiting, it doesn’t necessarily mean AGY. It can be from various reasons or illnesses. Only diagnostics from your avian vet can tell for sure. When you’re ready, you can discuss your concern about possible agy with your vet. For now, wishing you peace...

We burried him in our garden. We have a vacation house on the hill so he has a nice view and forest around him. We also put his favorite items with him, like favorite food, toy and pictures of him together with other budgies from his flock so they keep them company. I try to go there often so I can put flowers. It helps me knowing that he's there.
We even put a rock with his name and dates and name and dates of his mate that passed away earlier.
