Hi! My name is Dickens-RIP 8/14/08

I am a Budgerigar from Hampton, NH.

Dickie, Dickie Poo

14 years old   F


I am a very picky eater so I don't really do treats.

In my house next to the mirror or on my swing.

Mom and the vet put me on a diet! Guess I inherited a fat gene from Mom!

Mom lets me do my own thing and doesn't try to make me come out when I don't want to.

I am a total homebirdy! I would rather play/entertain at home. Flying is overrated!.

Is it time to eat yet?.

  In memory of my Miss Dickens
So sorry to hear of your loss. I am sorry Theo and I have not written but we also lost our favorite Bird Lady friend Julie Anne. She had 5 tiels and sadly passed away. Was Miss Dickens sick? Our thoughts are with you and your flock. A vote for Miss Dickens. She had such a lovely personality and will be missed.
Dawn, Theo and the Flock

Come visit me, Theodore, Dito & Raptor.

You always have my vote. All is good around our place. Lisbon is not very nice. He chases us off the cages and does not share. Mom has had to give him a few talks. Not that any of them have sunk in. I have tried to be his friend. He has his moments but really it is when mom is standing there. He knows mom will be all over him. She is the rule maker and that is final!!! Mom thinks with time all should calm down. Let's hope she is right. I laugh cause the minute he sees or hears mom he hides. He has had a few time outs as he just goes after us for no reason. Don't worry I am ok. I can fly and mom moves pretty quick. It is moms B-day on Friday so we are all planning on spending some time with her that is after her sister aunt Boobers lets us have her back. They have plans Fri night, sat am and monday. I know social aren't they? Well I better get back to watching over us so mom doesn't have to worry. You have a great day. Please visit when you can. If you move to texas let me know. I hear it is nice there. TTYL Theo xoxo

  Hello Robin and Miss Dickens
Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I had my GrandMAMA here and man can she motor!! I still do miss Rolly as he was such a vibrant little guy. I have adopted Lisbon (his pics are on Theo's page). He has not had a great start in life but now he is here with me and my flock. I think he is still trying to figure out who and what we are. I take him back to the vet in Vancouver on Friday to get his toe re-checked. I called the Vet this morning as he has chewed his bandage off. Miss Personality was a bit put out so I said Friday would be fine. I thought take him today make sure all is ok. I hope this vet has more personality. LOL I have to take him to this vet as that is the vet that has treated him all along B4 I adopted him. It will be about an hour car ride 1 way. I know not great for the little one but nothing I can do. We can chirp to the radio. In time I hope he can find trust with people and other birds again. He is pretty nervous. I guess so! I also noticed his 2 back feet were chewed as he has no claws and 1 foot is shorter than the other. I don't think I want to know that life he had. I will let you know how he is doing. He is pretty quiet and observes lots. Thanks for the info on the Rainbow bridge. It was nice to send a tribute to Rolly. I know Theo still misses him as they were buds. You have a nice day. Happy 4th of July!! We just had our Canada Day and it was a hot one. I am off all this week so I will be off to enjoy some sun. Take care Dawn & the Flock

Come visit me, Theodore, Dito & Raptor.

  Hey Miss Dickens
I gave you a happy Canada Day vote. Our holiday is tomorrow. GrandMAMA bought mom a bike for her B-day. She plans on peddeling around town. Cheaper than gas!!! Mom also put some pics of Lisbon on my page so you can check him out. He has had a pretty rough start.I think with a little time he will be just fine. We are all having a great time with GrandMAMA. She shared her salad with me last night. Today we are just watching the news together B4 mom and her go out. Cooler this morning. We are having a heat wave. GrandMAMA is leaving tomorrow but there is a forest fire so we have to wait and see if the HWY is open and she can get home. We don't mind if she stays. I will check back later if the girls get home and are not too tired. You have a wonderful day. Theo xoxoxox

Come visit me, Theodore, Dito & Raptor.

  Good evening Miss Dickens
I know it is late but we had a super hot day and mom brought Lisbon our new roomie home. He is cute. He is on meds and has a bandage on his foot. Poor thing. He is lucky to be here. Did you see moms write up on Rolly? She went to the site but was not sure if she made it in time for the monday thing. We still miss him lots. Lisbon seems to be pretty cool. We will get to spend more time with him tomorrow. Oh and GrandMAMA is in town we get her tomorrow aswell. Busy day for us. Lots to look forward to. I best get going to bed. A vote for U Theo xoxo

  Thank you Dickens and mom Robin
I went to the Grey Haven fundraiser last night and everyone was so kind. I got lots of hugs. Rolly will be in the next news letter. They had planned on it long before we lost him. I thought that was very nice. I have decided to adopt the Parrotlet that was found in a cats mouth. He is doing fine and will make a full recovery. He is on meds and going to the vets Wed. for a check up. Most likely I will pick him up n ext weekend. Good thing as I start my 1 week of holidays so I can be home with him and see how he adjusts with the others. I think Theo will be thrilled. He is such a mother hen for a budgie. He is not Rolly but he will be a new birdie friend. I don't think I could ever find another Rolly. He was just a gem. I myself am better. Thank you for the website I am going to post Rolly on it. Have a nice evening and again thank you for your thoughts. Dawn Rolly's mom

  Morning Miss. Dickens
I am still very sad. Mom asked me yesterday if I wanted a friend. I miss hanging with Rolly. She is working on a new friend for me. She mentioned a Parrotlet named Liz Ban? something like that. He is a resue as he was found in a cats mouth but he is fine and will make a full recovery. Mom I think is planning on visiting with him tomorrow. She met him once. Mom will make the right choice but it takes her time as she researches and all that human stuff. I have just been hanging out with mom. Thank you for your thoughts. How is life with you these days? Anything new? I should get going as mom is going to wash her car and I have to make sure she gets all she needs. I am such a mother hen she tells me. Have a great day Theo xoxo

  Morning Miss. Dickens
Thank you for thinking of Rolly. He passed away. Mom and I are very sad as he was such a great Canary. I hung our with him everyday. Mom misses his song. There was nothing even a vet could do. Not signs of illness but we think he had a stroke. Aunt Boobers thinks mom fed him too much as he loved to eat. Either way we miss him. I am just hanging out havin my breakie and listening to my CD. I think I will just chill today. Mom is taking the 1st week of July off. I thik she wised it was now. LOL I will chat to you later. Take care you look great. Theo xoxo

You got my vote!!! I had a great weekend. Mom was busy but we hung out. Mom also adopted a new cat for Uncle Ryan as he ha to put his Vester to rest. Liver Failure. Apparently he wants to adopt another cat named Cosmo. But for now he has Boris. Mom said he is real cute and a snug bug. Bad news my roomie Rolly is sick. Mom thinks it is a stroke that he had. She is keeping close watch on him. trying to find a vet that works on a Monday and deals in birds...well let's just say she was on the phone for almost an hour. Our vet got married and moved away. Not to worry mom has everything under control. I am watching him too. Poor thing. Well I best get back to soaking up the sun and watching Rolly. I'll chat to you later. I hope your mom is feeling better now. Theo

  Good Day Miss. Dickens!
Thought I would fly by to say hello and see how you were. Mom made a spectacular salad for us yesterday. She also made birdie moosh and that was excellent. Rolly and I are just hanging out watching the rain. Mom is going to a coffee and conversation Saturday (all bird related) so she gets to make a bird toy for us. I am sure the tiels will get it b4 I do. I hope all is well in your world I will chat to you later. Theodore

How are you today. My mom has raised me right as she is a lady (well not to sure of that somedays). However she makes sure I know my manners unless anut Boobers is there. Then I can do whatever I want. Must be a sister thing. Beside I think you look just fine. Mreeeow!!!I hope you are having a nice holiday day hanging out with your mom. Theo

  Welcome little girl!
Diets are never any fun. Are you an English budgie? I heard from mom that they are always on the larger size. Please don't take that the wrong way it is just in your jeans. Flying by the way is the best thing. You can do fly bys and freak people and fellow roomies out. Oh you so have to try it. trust me you will love it. I do it every chance I get. Some other tastey treats are popcorn and pasta. Yum Ok now I am hungry Theo
