Yesterday morning my beautiful Blueberry passed away. He was 15 years old. He was fine on Sunday night, as cheerful and chirpy as anything, then on Monday morning he was poorly and passed away in my mum's hands. I still can't come to terms with it or accept that he's gone. He's been there with me since I was 9, and I've spent nearly every day with him. I can't imagine him not being there when I visit. Or not being there to come and say hi to me or see his excited face when I give him some millet or cucumber.
It hurts so much. I miss him so much and I just wish he was here. I don't want him to be a thing of the past of just there in my memories, I want him here.
I know he had a good life, but it's too hard thinking he's no longer here.
We buried him in the garden, and I still feel at pain about it. His little body under the ground seems so wrong.
I just don't know what to do. Life won't be the same without him, I don't want to even accept he's gone.

Rest in Peace, sweet little Blueberry. Keep his cute face and happy song close to your heart, and he will be with you forever. He will have plenty of friends to play with in budgie Heaven. I am so sorry for your loss, Becky, but he went peacefully in the hands of those who love him. Even at 15 years, it is too soon.
Aw, Becky, I'm really sorry to hear that. It's so difficult losing one of our little ones, but he did have a good long run of it, and his life was as full as it could be, and that's all down to you. You have him in your garden now, there to pause by and spend a thought for the good times you had together. Keep him close to your heart and look towards the future. Best wishes.
I'm so sorry for your loss. I know how you feel. I know you were a good budgie parent to BLuberry and that he must have an amazing long life with you. In human years, he essentially lived to 100 years old which is very rare for most budgies. This means you gave him the best love in the world by caring for him. Fly high over the rainbow bridge..Blueberry will always be in your heart.
Thanks for all your support. I am finding it harder than ever. He had been with me since I was 8. I can't imagine a life without him, nor do I want to imagine it. My heart is broken and I don't want to accept it. I don't want him to be part of the past. It just feels like a really bad dream. I miss him so much. It hurts so much Blueberry, I love you and miss you. You were my everything and I'll miss everything about you.
He lived a nice long happy life with you and your family and I am sorry that the eye injury took a turn for the worse. Now he is over the rainbow bridge without any more pain.
Fly free, fly high Blueberry.
