Default In Memory of Snowy

She was with us for over 12 years, and the past year and a half I have been taking care of her alone, as my family is overseas. I really bonded with her, and she became infatuated with me.

I could never quite figure out the problem she was having, it started about 2months ago with the preen gland, and piled on from there. Surgery was an option, but with her age and weakness, it wasn't the right move at the time.

She passed away this morning at around 4:45 am.

The picture below is from last night, our last moments together, when I brought her out and put her beside me on my bed.

I burried her at around 7 am in my backyard.

Rest in Peace, beautiful sweet Snowy. Keep her cute face and happy song close to your heart, and she will be with you forever. Her long life is a tribute to your love and good care, but even at 12 years, it doesn't seem long enough. I was hoping Snowy was on the way to recovery. Hugs to you at this sad time. We all will miss her.

Our flock at The Bridge has increased by one more
beautiful and much-loved friend. I'm so sorry to
hear of Snowy's passing. You did so much for her,
everything you could to help her. She did have a
long and wonderful life with you, everything a budgie
could wish for. I'm certain she knows how much you
love her, and when you see her again at The Bridge,
her greeting to you will leave no doubt as to how
much she loves you.

to you on this sad day.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Snowy had a good, long and happy life and now she rests. I know how hard it is to lose such a beloved pet, I also had a budgie in the past that lived for 14 years and we get used to that presence so much that it's odd when it's no longer there. In these trying times, think of all the good moments you had with Snowy, and that part of her will always be with you.
Rest in peace beautiful, sweet Snowy.

Rest in Peace precious Snowy. You were so loved and are missed by all of us.
She flies high and free now without any discomfort, and will be with you always.

I'm so very sorry to that beautiful Snowy is no longer with us, she is in good company now with all our extra special budgies. I followed your other post, and although I never posted my self, I was always rooting for Snowy, bless her. She lived such an amazingly long and happy life, and that was down to your love and care.

I know you will always love and miss her, and that you are hurting now, but try to remember the happy times you shared and one day soon you will think of her and smile. I still shed tears for my extra special budgie, and we lost him a month ago, but now I can laugh at the funny times we had with him.

RIP Snowy, fly high with all our special angels over the Rainbow Bridge. You were loved very much.

I'm so sorry to hear about your beloved Snowy. I also followed the other thread but did not post to it. It sounds like she lived a happy life with lots of love and care. Rest in peace, beautiful bird.
