My name is Ash Golden and my Best Friend here is Budgie. When I got him 2 years ago as a baby eyed little Birdie. I was not expecting this life I have with him now. He has been my everything and is ALWAYS there for me and with me. He was that one Blue Budgie at the bottom of the wire cage crowded with other Budgies and one VERY dirty ladder. Their wings had already been clipped (mutilated) and they were not handled. When the lady pulled him out with a towel, like she was disgusted to touch him, and stuck him in the box I was more than excited to show him his new home and give him everything he wanted. Since the first day he has never been caged. He has his own playground by my chair in the living room, his own perch in the car, his own sleeping area by my bed and travels with me almost everyday. Being as Budgies wings were clipped at a young age he will never be able to fly. His flight feathers always have to be trimmed because when they do come in they are weak, brittle and twist and break easily which causes him pain and makes him pluck at them till he bleeds. He also has episodes where he will move his head around dizzy for a few seconds but the vet said it is likely from a head trauma earlier in his life and no need to worry as he is healthy and it is becoming were I rarely see him doing it anymore. Anyway, he is a very active comedian and loves to play tag, eat and drink my food if he is sneaky, preen me, have grass baths in the yard and bath with me. He also loves my computer but knows he is not allowed on the keyboard. He also talks constantly and likes to yell at me if I turn the tv up because he is so loud! He says pretty bird, hello, hey, hi, whatcha doing?, no, awww, i love you, meow, cat call whistle, go away, ****er and other phrases with choice words that I really wish he had not picked up. I can't see my life without him and I would do anything for him. As for myself... I am in College to get my Bachelors Degree in Photography. I love Nature and that is what I shoot. I love camping hiking and traveling. I was a Marine stationed in Okinawa, Japan and got out honorable to pursue other loves.
