My husband and I went to a local pet store "just to look". Baby was in a glass enclosed area with about 20 other birds. While they flew around, she sat quietly on a perch eyeing the activities of the people - "just to look" I suppose!. Awards

Hi! My name is Baby

I am a Lovebird from Seaside Heights, NJ.

Stinky, Poopa, Smelly Cat

14 years old   F


Macaroni, cheese, crab, wheat chex and shelled peanuts.

Mommy's leg, Daddy's feet, my cardboard box where I stored my favorite things and of course, the shower.

Eating macaroni out of anything but my favorite chinese dish, being held and when mom and dad didn't wear white socks! (Don't know why, but I just love them!)

They spoil me, love me and play with me ALL the time!

Napping with my head tucked into my favorite bell (See pic below!) Doing "rituals" around my favorite toy (walking backward in circles - sometimes doing a Figure 8), breaking a blue glass lovebird mom and dad bought (Only one princess in the house please!).

"Time for me to Fly" - Baby passed away last week after suddenly falling ill..

  I am so Sorry!
I was looking at lovebirds on BC and I saw your story. I lost a lovebird 6 years ago! She was my first bird and we loved her so much! When she passed I cried and cried for weeks! I just wanted to let you know that it dose get better but you will never forget! Everytime I see a green peachface lovebird I think of Sweet Pea! I have 3 lovebird now but will never have one that looks like her,(I just can't do it) Another bird dose not replace they just bring more love to your life. Again I just wanted to say Sorry and I KNOW how you feel! Take care and God bless, Amy (Mumble, Rocky ,and Peaches Mom)

Come visit me, Mango, Kenya, Baby, Blaze & Dylan.

  Good Morning
Hello! Just checking in again to see how you are doing. Mommy keeps praying that every day gets a little easier for you. She even found a little lovie in a pet shop that was in rather poor living conditions and she wanted to buy him for you to lift your spirits a little with a new bundle of feathers around. (Certainly not as a replacement for Baby!! That is never possible!!) But you live way to far away from Minnesota for mommy to bring him to you :( Just know that you are in our thoughts and prayers! Please keep in touch!! ~Huey, Zebe and Angela

  Good morning again!
I just wanted to add that I just read your message about your family member saying that she was just a bird and I had to comment. I really feel for you on not having the understanding of family members...I know in the back of their minds my family was thinking the same thing when I was so hysterical about losing DJ, but God bless them, they have never said it. I just wanted to give you my permission, if you feel so inclined, to forward any messages that I have written to whomever you wish. Maybe those poems would help them, if not understand, then at least realize how incredibly precious our birds are to us. I also wanted to comment on the "size of the pet equaling the amount of grief". I know you know this, but it may help your family to hear it from someone else too: I've trained horses for many years and have had some incredible horses in that time. I (very thankfully) have only lost 3 over the years (many were sold, but only three passed away), and as painful as that was, I can tell you that I have never hurt more deeply or felt more empty than when my sun conure, DJ, died last August. Anyway, sorry to ramble on, but I hope it helps in some way. Oh and also, I would recommend that if you want more of a response to this subject to post the same message on other birdies blog sites. I can personally attest for all of the birds that have left blogs on my birdies pages, and MANY of them would be more than happy to help. Just a thought! Still anxiously waiting to hear how you are doing! Love ya! ~Angela, Huey, and Zebe

  Good Morning
I just wanted to stop by and see how you are doing after losing your precious Baby. My heart still aches for you. I remember when I lost my DJ I cried for weeks after when he would pop up in my mind. There were times my chest felt so heavy I could hardly breathe. I still have his favorite toy sitting on my dresser. Just know that it's okay to grieve, and there are very many of us who understand the deep sorrow that you feel. Don't let anyone discount that. We know how precious and dear to our hearts these little feathered ones can be. And also know that it's okay to get another bird eventually. It's hard at first because you expect them to act the same as the one you lost, but after a little while, that new one will fill that aching hole in your heart. My Huey will never be the precious DJ that I lost, but I wouldn't give him up for the entire world on a silver platter. He is incredible and mommys spoiled baby boy. Please let me know how it is going, and I will continue to keep you in my prayers. ~Angela (Huey and Zebe's momma)

Dear Baby,
I hope you are having fun in Heaven, playing all the time.
I'm sorry to hear that you had to leave your Mommy and Daddy, but you'll see them again. After all, it's not Heaven without our humans!

  So sorry about baby
We are so sorry you lost your beautiful little bird. We know how hard it is to lose a special friend. And how sad that so many people don't know the joy that birds (and other companion animals) bring to our lives, so they say callous or thoughtless things. They will never understand, but other "bird people" do, and share your grief. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Suzie & Kirby's mom

Come visit me, Kirby & Suzie.

  How Rude !! " It's just a bird " Wow
My sister inlaw called and was chatting about e-mail we sent out to all of our family members of the passing of Baby. One sister asked the other if she got the mail and her answer was IT'S JUST a BIRD wow what more could be said. ( MAY BABY OUR BLUE BIRD OF HAPPYNESS AND ALL HER FRIENDS SAY GOODMORNING AT SUN UP AND LEAVE DAILY " TREATS" ON HER CAR) I would love to know your feelings on behalf of Baby and all her friends. At your request I will forward your response, maybe oneday she will understand how sad her statement was to all of us.

Baby's sad Dad

  I was near you, by your bed last night; I came to have a peek. I could see that you were crying, you found it hard to sleep. I chattered to you softly as you brushed away a tear, "It's me, I haven't left you. I'm well. I'm fine. I'm here." I was close to you at breakfast. I watched you pour the tea. You were thinking of the many times your hands reached out to me. I was with you at my grave today. You tend it with such care. I want to reassure you, that I am not lying there. I flew with you back towards the house. As you fumbled for your key, I gently touched you with a feather, I smiled and said, "It's me." You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair. I tried so hard to let you know that I was perching there. It's possible for me to be so near you everyday To say to you with certainty, "I never went away." You sat there very quietly, and then smiled. I think you knew In the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you. The day is over - I smile and watch you yawning And say, "Good night, God bless, I'll see you in the morning." And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide, I'll fly across to greet you and we'll enter side by side. I have many things to show you. There is so much for you to see. Be patient, live your journey out... then come home to be with me

  I'm so sorry!
Oh, I am so very, very sorry for your heart just aches for you! Fly free little Baby! *********************************************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 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.
