Default RIP Pudgie

Hello all,

I would like to tell you all about my fiance's pet bird, (which was also mine, but part time, since we don't live together).

I gave Pudgie to him for his 17th birthday. He was a very young bird, just a few months old, and he was his first pet, ever. He still had stripes, and we couldn't tell what his sex was. The lady at the pet shop guessed that he was a female, so for the first couple of months, we always referred to him as "she/her".

We had Pudgie for almost 9 years. He lived a happy life, chirping away at his reflection, coming out to fly around and land on people's heads and glasses, and sharing his life with ours.

The following was copied from Facebook.

"In Memory of Pudgie Palakiko Castrillo
April 25th 2012 in Home
Friend

Thanks for all the laughter you brought, listening in times of need, the happiness you brought to everyone around you, and keeping us company. You became part of the family, growing with us through the years, and even saw some new faces in the family pop up. Your coming into our life was a gift, and I'm glad to have known you and to have you as a friend. Rest in peace girl, we won't forget everything you did for us!

Pudgie Palakiko Castrillo
"The bird we thought was a 'she', but was really a 'he'"
March 27, 2004 - April 25, 2012"

Pudgie is now in the backyard, and we've used a flower to mark her grave.

I am so sorry abut Pudgie! You gave "her" a darn good, long, and fruitful life. Nine years is pretty good for a budgie too. Remember, Pudgie is very grateful of you and your fiancÚ for taking such good care of "her"! She awaits you two at the rainbow bridge and she now has perfect pulmage and she has been restored to exceptional health. She feeds on millet and plays all day with her new friends in budgie heaven. Rip Pudgie!

i am so sorry for your loss. i can truthfully said i know how you feel. your Pudgie sounds like my Pumble. Pumble was 8 when her died, Pudgie was 9. and they both loved mirrors. i can tell you that the best thing to do to make you less sad i adopt. i did and though i still have the days where i severely miss Pumby i can think that i gave two homeless bird a loving home, and that is by far one of the best feelings a person can have!

now that i look at Pudgie, he looks similar to Pumble...



i agree with Iris_grrl, you have put a wonderful memorial together! :budge"

Pudgie had a very happy life with you and is now flying high and free and resting at the Rainbow Bridge until you meet again some day.

Your tribute to Pudgie was lovely! I know she is happy that you are remembering the wonderful times you had with her and thinking of her with love.
