Grover lived in a pet store all his life, he belonged to the owner. The owner sold the store but kept the bird at the store with the promise that he was not to be sold. Grover had freedom at this pet store to roam about. I was in the pet store a lot cuz I sold my baby tiels to the owner there. Grover has tumors on his body and the fear is that they are cancerous but because of his age was told they should just leave them alone. The newer owner (of 3 years now) was selling the store and wanted Grover to have a home where he would be taken care of until the cancer made it unbearable to him. So I became his Hospice home. I am soooo in love with Grover, he is the Best. I hope his tumors are not cancerous.. Awards

Hi! My name is Grover

I am from Merrill, WI.

Not really, I call him all kinds of cute names but then again, I do that to all my birds..

34 years old   M

Grover loves baby carrots and shredded wheat. But he will eat just about anything

Grover loves to hang out on top of the big cage which has other birds in it. He don't care who is in it, He's the boss bird.

Grover does not like people fussing over him. He is a good bird but only pet him for a few seconds, then leave him alone

She loves me, She gives me kisses and lets me kiss her, She takes me places so I may see things I have never seen before. I am nervous at first when we go out but learn to love it in no time at all. She puts some stupid harness on me and I hate it, I spend most of my nervous time trying to escape.

Grover loves to reach down from the top of the cage and put his beak up against his owners face and give many kisses. He is THE BIRD... as far as he is concerned.

Never!!!!give up hope!.

  Hello Grover
You have lived a long life and you knew that you were loved beyound words to express. It is so hard to lose a loved one. I lost my Nigel at age 3, he wasn't lucky enough to enjoy all the love, hugs and kissses that you did, so you were a very special and lucky bird. My Nigel was also waiting at the rainbow bridge for you. It's such comfort to know he's amoung all those waiting for you. I didn't think I could ever love another bird as I did Nigel, but I was wrong, I now have three others that are just as special in different ways. My pain is still very real as your will be for a long time. As I read your story my heart is breaking all over again. Will it ever get any easier??

  Hi Grover
I do have many friends that have passed over the great bridge, and 2007 has been the worst year ever. I will miss all my birdiful friends, but I will see them all again. There are a few of our flock that have passed as well, but not for many years. Mom is worried about my mortality since Alex, the CAG has passed, since he had the best care and was younger than I am...I hope your mom is doing OK. You sure were such a fabulous fid. I will see you on the other side some day~~Uzi

  Condolences Groves Mom!
Oh I am sorry to hear about Grover. What a Guy he was.!! That must have been so hard for him to leave such a warm loving home he obviously had with you. How blessed he was to find such a caring person to look after him. We lost our furry friend Miss Lilly one month ago. She was my mommy's little Westie. She lived with mom for 16 and a half years. Mom said she was her first baby. Miss Lilly really loved Stitch. They were big buddies. She would let Stitch hang out on her back and let her preen her fur. It was really quite adorable. Mommy was heart broken. Daddy had already bought mommy a B&G for her birthday and that was helping mommy get over her broken heart. We were all very excited and focusing our energy on getting ready to bring home our new baby B&G. MOmmy went to see her a few times and she would even talk to her on the phone. Her breeder mommy would send us lots of pictures.. But then this weekend little Miss Gabriella passed to the Rainbow Bridge. She was 15 weeks old and her mommy (her breeder mommy) had to go away the weekend before. The people who were in charge did not feed her right and they stretched her crop. The complication were just too much for her. Mommy is very upset...Stitch and mommy were not in a very festive mood but she will be fine once she has had her time to grieve....I am trying to keep her laughing. She tells me all the time I am a funny guy. Ya know mommy has not been been helping me type my notes too-much cause she says when she gets her smiles back she will be ready to help me type my fun blogs. So we will come by again and visit you Grovers mom...but for now mommy is going to just snuggle down with us for a bit.

  Hi Grovers Mom
I am so sprry to hear grover went to rainbow bridge. Rest asured that he is in no more pain. I know it is hard to lose one you loved so much. When I lost baby and ode I was devastated, I cried for days. Just like grover they died in my hands. There is not much any one can say or do to make things better. Just remember that I am there for you. the heart ach is hard to take now but it will get a little better in time. There are lots of birdies at rainbow bridge to welcome your sweet grover. Keep in touch from grovers birdie friends mom.

Come visit me, Rosey & Smokey.

  Oh Grover, we are so sorry you had to go
May you fly free and healthy at the Rainbow Bridge. Here is a Poem for you by author unknown to comfort you.
Just this side of Heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When a bird dies that has been especially close to someone here, that bird goes to the Rainbow Bridge.

At the Rainbow Bridge there are meadows and hills and beautiful trees of all kinds where all our special friends can fly and climb, hang and flap, hop and run, jump and play, squawk and squeal and sing together.

There is plenty of good food, including grapes and peanuts, ice cream and cheese, spaghetti and especially lots of pizza. There is crystal clear water in brooks and springs are filled with water as well as every kind of delicious fresh fruit juice.

One warm spring even runs full of the coffee they can now drink their fill of without hearing a single no-no. There is lots of glorious sunshine, and sweet warm rain when they want it and our friends are warm and comfortable and totally at peace.

All the birds who had been ill or old are restored to health and vigor and to their natural incredible beauty. Their feathers shine, their wing feathers are whole, and their eyes gleam once again with vitality.

Those who were hurt or maimed or ignored or broken-hearted are made whole and strong and free of fear again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days gone by.

The birds are happy and content..... except for one small thing - they each miss someone very special to them who had to be left behind when the bird returned home. Still they all fly and play happily and safely and noisily together - even the grouchiest greys and orneriest senegals, the tiniest finches and the grandest macaws.

But the day comes for each bird when he suddenly stops and looks far into the distance. His body freezes and his bright eyes are intent as he watches and listens in silence. Suddenly he begins to fly from the group, soaring over the green grass, his wings flapping harder and harder!

You have been spotted - and he shrieks to you and then calls your name and his own and cries again and again and as he rushes toward you.

When you and your bird finally meet, you cling to each other in joyous reunion, knowing you will never be parted again.

Your face and your fingers - and even your toes - are covered with beak nibbles and soft ecstatic kisses. Your hair is preened by that special beak, and his head bends under your fingers to invite your touch. Your hands again find their way under beloved wings, to caress the downy softness beneath.

You look once more into the trusting eyes of your companion-so long gone from your physical life on earth, but never for an instant absent from your heart.

Your tears of joy are gently brushed away by those beloved wings... and feeling immersed once more in total contentment and love, you and your beloved companion cross the Rainbow Bridge together.
~~Uzi and flock

So sorry to hear about your loss. I bet he's up there with all the rest of the birds who pass over the Rainbow Bridge. And they waited for him with open wings. At least he don't have to suffer anymore. And Now is at peace. Here's a vote in his honor ♥

You tell her that when it's your time and it seems your not ready yet, I will be here along with so many of my flock mates to welcome you and make you safe and happy. I miss my mom very much and she misses me even more. You will be missed too but at least your mom can talk to you from the heaven net when she needs to. I will always be your friend.
