My mom is in a bird chat group in Yahoo with my very first mom who raised me. My first mom posted pictures of of my clutch to the group. That's when my mom fell in love with me. I didn't get to see her for quite a while because I had to take a plane trip to get to her since my first mom was in Massachusetts. I even got to stay with my Auntie Amy until the weather was just right for me to take my big flight to Ohio. That was November 1, 2005 and I've been with mom for over two years now. Jingle and Honey Bun are my fiblings!.

Hi! My name is Sweetie

I am a Lovebird from Dayton, OH.

I'm a white face violet lovebird. Mom calls Snowy and I the "blue boys" or "blues brothers" even though we aren't really related.

9 years old   M

Lovebird

Scrambled eggs, millet, corn and Ramen noodles

With my friend, Snowy, on the bird play grounds. I really like the hanging one my mom made.

I don't like peach face lovebirds. My moms use to breed and raise them. They fell in love with all their babies and kept them. When I was the baby of the flock all the peach faces picked me so now I pick on them.

She's taking me to the vet to help me feel better. In early December I started picking a spot under my wing. She took me to the vet and found out I had bacteria in my mouth. I got better for a little bit and started picking again so she took me to the vet again. This time the doctor did blood tests and said I have a toxicity problem from something I breathed. Mom is doing everything she can to help me feel better.

I like Fisher's lovebirds a lot. My best friend, Snowy, is a blue Fischer. My moms also have a normal Fischer, Sweetheart..

I just adore Fischer lovebirds!.

  We'll have to try the ramen noodles!
Ramen noodles: sounds like a fun food for Tessa. We'll try it out. Do you cook it plain or add the seasonings?
We have shrimp flavor here.
Zena loves to tear up plain spaghetti. I don't think she really eats much of it. We hang it in her cage and she furiously starts from the bottom and starts shredding it all the way to the top. Its a riot to watch.

Hope you have a chance to stop by and give Zena a vote today. Meanwhile, here is a vote for you.

  Update for the friend's of Artemis
Hi all, this is Artemis' mom. I have soem terrible news for each of you. I lost Artemis suddenly one month and one day ago. On Feb 20, I found Artemis still clinging to his cage bars. He appeared to be playing. He was not caught in anything/toy, it was like he just suddenly passed away. It tears me up to know I will never get another kiss, another word, another snuggle from Artemis.

Sorry it's taken me so long to reply. Mom has been away at a show and didn't leave me her password to get onto BC myself. She's home again until the 26th and then off once more. I think mom is getting me a new toy from your mom. One for bobbi too! Here's a v4u today. Birdie hugs, Clyde

  Hello Sweetie!
It sounds like you had a nice Valentine's day. Happy Birthday to your young mom. Mama hasn't made me a new dress in a long time. My Christmas one is the one I'm wearing though all the beads and ribbons had come off it. Mama has sewn the beads on about five times. They really keep me occupied. She just put some new ones on last week. My infection came back under my wing so I've been struggling with that again. And it's made me very itchy again too. I haven't lost my appetite this time. Mama is becoming more experienced with giving me my meds and I am getting used to taking them, but still hate it. Right now we are getting some much needed rain. The more rain we have now, the fewer forest fires we have later. I hope you have a nice week Sweetie. Leaving you a vote. Pringle

  Hello Sweetie!
Happy New Year!
We have really missed visiting our friends here lately. It's been too long since we've been able to blog properly. Hopefully by the end of the month we can get back to it regularly. I am feeling much better now and have lots of new feathers coming in. I am playing a little, eating well and preening nicely when my collar is taken off. Mama says I can have my collar off full time when all the new feathers have grown in. Last Sunday, Mama attached a leash to my getup and took me outside. It was the first time I have ever been outside without being in a cage. It was a little scary and I was only out for about two minutes since it was a bit cold, even with a fleece collar on. I am looking forward to Spring and new found freedom. I wish you the very best in the upcoming year. Pecking at your vote button. Pringle

  Hello Sweetie!
I am finally here on the computer tonight. It feels like it's been ages since I last blogged. I am doing much better now. My skin is improving but I still have to wear the cape. I am eating all my food well and have even attempted the forbidden territory of Poirot's kingdom. His royal pellets are better than mine by far. I was halted rudely in the process and returned to my lowly cage. I am hoping to be taken off my antibiotics this week. We have to find out from the vet if it is alright. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Thank you for supporting me through this difficult time. Leaving you a vote. Pringle

  Hello Sweetie!
Mama took Pringle to the vet this afternoon. It's a tiny office and our vet was out on a call but would be back shortly. The specialist ( an old friend of our vet) , who our vet had called in, arrived and looked at her right away. Mama held Pringle while the specialist took a sample of her skin to look at under a microscope. In the meantime our vet arrived and told this specialist was one of the top pathologists in the world and worked specifically with birds. He also jokingly told us that he normally worked with dead animals. It turned out her skin problem is caused by something internal since he couldn't see anything on the skin. After a lot of discussing and getting Pringle's history, both vets came up with the conclusion that she probably has liver or kidney problems. They also think she has a secondary infection, so she is back on antibiotics. While they were discussing this, the specialist called an avian vet and confirmed his suspicions with her. She said to also try medicine for Giardia. She has three different drugs to take, including something for the liver/kidney problem. They also want her to start eating Harrison's pellets and since the amazon that lives at the vets eats the same thing, they gave us some of his pellets to get started. She still has to have stuff put on her skin too. Now we have to wait a couple of weeks to see if things get better. I'll try and get back to you properly tomorrow. Poirot

  Hello Sweetie!
I hope you had a Happy Halloween yesterday. Today I am eating when offered food, but really don't have the energy to go and get it myself. Mama puts me in front of it but I ignore it. I have to sit on my top perch and be offered it on a spoon. I am just spending my time sleeping and keeping warm. I think the vet wants to get to the bottom of the problem next week. I know that Mama does. My crazy brother Poirot, has just started to pick up chicken sounds. He is clucking away on the window sill. He is so silly. I would never dream of doing anything like it. I hope you have a good Sunday. Leaving you a vote. Pringle

  Hello Sweetie!
Happy Halloween to you, your flock and family. Glad that Snowy finally came out of hiding. I've been feeling better today. I was hungry and squawked a little bit. It'll be one day at a time. Mama made me another collar so she could wash the one I was wearing. It's the same blue, but with some beads that I can preen so I have something to do when I reach for my feathers. I hope you had a great evening. Pringle

  Hello Sweetie!
Thanks for flying by and for your concern. My skin infection is spreading under the other wing. It's really strange since I've had the sulfur stuff put on it the whole time. The vet said to keep me on the Baytril over the weekend. I might have to have a biopsy next week if I am not improved by Monday. I hope it doesn't come to that. I am getting very tired of being medicated. I love to sit on a hand or knee and be petted, but I have never gotten used to being handled all over. I was very good today when Mama was putting stuff under my wings. I struggled a little but did not complain. I was not so quiet when the antibiotics came out this evening. I did eat better today. To begin with I wouldn't touch my food but with some coaxing I ate enought to work up an appetite tonight. I was still spoon fed everything but when Mama came back to me after leaving me for an hour, I had eaten a piece of Pumpkin roll. Poirot has been a big ham all week. He lost the broken part of his beak this morning and has been celebrating by tossing all his toys, making up for lost time. I hope you have a grey'tweek'end my friend. Leaving you a vote. Pringle

Thanks for flying by. Mama has just posted pictures on Pringle's page of the soft collar she made her this afternoon. She seems more relaxed in it. Thank you so much again for the instructions. You look so cute in your little dress, I mean cape. That's a really cute fabric. I'll squawk at you later. Poirot

  Hello Sweetie! Thanks for the congrats!
Super Bird. I think that you are wearing a cape too. Maybe Pringle should have a big red P on hers. That party for the lovies sounds like fun. I am lucky, I only eat ZuPreem pellets, Pringle too. That is aside from the other things we eat. Mama thinks my ideas for the prize are a bit exaggerated. I heard her say that she will be giving the money to those in need. Pringle and I will still be getting a couple of toys out of it. She says my cage is perfectly fine and she doesn't really want my current for herself. She says a bed is a bit more comfortable than a perch. The Bird channel gave all the winners their ribbon or trophy to use in their avatars. I've added the one to mine already. I'll squawk at you later my friend. Poirot

  Hello Sweetie!
Thank you so much for the instructions on how to make the collar. Mama has been so busy today she's not had a second to make one. I'll let you know when it is ready. This morning when Mama weighed me I was an all time low of 79 grams. I've lost so much weight lately. I am only willing to eat if the food is offered to me on my top perch in my cage right under my light. Mama spoon fed me then called the vet. He is a vet that would never think of charging for a phone consultation. He has now put me on Baytril. I have to take it by beak twice daily. Poirot and I went along for the ride to the vet to pick up the medicine. Poirot was a big Ham and called the receptionist a Cutie Pie. She really liked that. Albert the DYA that lives there was jealous and made some really cute sounds. They said it was the first time that Albert had taken any notice of another bird who came in. When we got home I squawked and made a big fuss when I was given the Baytril. I struggled more than usual when the yucky sulfur stuff was put on me. I am getting really tired of all this handling. But after all that I wanted to snuggle against Mama's cheek. I was not interested in my supper tonight, but after being offered it on a spoon, I got some appetite back. Mama really hopes the medications start working. I get to take your vote button tonight. Don't tell Poirot. Hee, hee, hee. Pringle
