It's kinda long, but here it goes. My mom had to get some stuff at a fish store for her fish, and while we were all waiting, I heard bird chirping in the second part of the store where the fish were. There was a cage full of lovebirds for sale, and I instantly fell in love with the little grey-colored baby lovebird that was flapping her wings. One of the workers saw me admiring her, and asked if I wanted to watch the bird get handfed. At this point, I was determined to take her home. After much begging to my parents, they said if the store was still open after we went to another one first, then I could have her for my birthday present. I agreed, and God let me get her, because the store was still open when we got back. She's the best b-day present I ever had (and my horse is, too).

In Toose's point of view:
I was held in a cage with beautiful adult Fischer lovebirds at a fish store. Being that I was only grey as a baby, I was considered the 'ugly duckling' to anyone who passed by compared to the other lovies. One day, a little girl came in, so I flapped my wings to get her attention, well, to get fed, hehe, but I got her attention too, and liked how she was paying attention to me and not the others. She didn't care that I wasn't colorful, and I knew I wanted to go home with her. When one of the employees came and said she could show the little girl how I get fed, I was real happy. The little girl was smiling the whole time, and then her parents came. The little girl begged to take me home, and I tried to look my cutest to persuade them. The employee helped by letting them know they could borrow a cage until they got one. Then they all left, and I was sad because I thought I was rejected. But then an hour or so later, they came back, and the little girl was real excited, because the rest of her family helped convince her dad too, to take me home. I'm so glad I ended up with a family like this, and with the little girl, my mom, the rest of my life.


****THANK YOU EVERYBIRDIE. ..for your caring sweetness, the kind words for comfort, and for letting Toose be BOTD. It means a lot to me right now, and I'm sure Toose would have been overjoyed to be in the spotlight that she had on, 8/05/10.****

Hi! My name is Toose, you'll always be in my heart...

I am a Peach-Faced Lovebird from Calistoga, CA.

Cutie, Whew Whew, Precious and a whole bunch others

13 years old   F

Peach-Faced Lovebird

Millet spray and pretty much anything that my mom is eating- but I hate fruits (and that worries my mom)

On my mom's shoulder or in her sweater or shirt

Metranomes for music instruments (don't think I spelled that right, though)

My mom rubs my head and takes me out for hours daily.
And she bakes me a cake on my birthdays (even though I only take a bite.)


Chewing on paper and then putting it in my rump feathers..

Toose, how'd you ever get so cute?...My parronts...And before that...their parronts. ..etc...(it's a joke that my mom has between her brothers about me)



THOUGHT I SHOULD LET YOU ALL KNOW:(
The rest of Toose's life has been reached. On Saturday, July 31, Toose was found on the bottom of her cage dead, (at 9 years old) while I was away on vacation, (one day before we came home). Despite the good care she received with my grandparents, she didn't live through the week. There was no sign of this suddenness, except for her gestures toward my grandparents of wanting to be petted by them (which she normally didn't do with strangers). With great dread, I fear she was so lonely without me, that she couldn't make it. All that matters to me as of now, is that Toose, my beloved bird, my sunshine everyday, is gone. I miss her so much, it hurts.
I love you Toose, always will; and I'm sorry I wasn't there for you when you breathed your last...Goodbye my Toose...

  You were in my dream again Toose, you came back to me and I was carrying you everywhere, and wouldn't let go of you because I didn't want to lose you a second time. You turned into one of my old pigeons who has also since been over the rainbow bridge, but your spirit was still there and it was still supposed to be you and I didn't want to put you in with the rest of the pigeons because I didn't want to risk getting you out of my sight.

Come visit me, Frieck & Toose, you'll always be in my heart....

There was somethin' extra special about your friendship with your bird. You two were true pals and it showed in your pictures, in your notes. It broke my heart when you lost your little buddy. She was such a darling bird.

Hold on tight to those precious memories of her.

My mom and I did not know you birdsonally,but we understand the sense of loss when a birdy flys tothe Rainbow Bridge. Don't be too sad, my fister Bertie is there and will help her find her way around. Even better, the Lord Himself will love her with a profound love that never ends!
Your flockily will be in our prayers!
By the way, I'm getting another tiel frother in a couple of weeks! We have too much love to avoid giving another bird a good home, and I bet you do too! It might be to soon right now, but pray about it.
