We rescued him from an Neglectful situation, we where not in the market for a bird, One day I seen this lady who was selling pups and i went over to look at them, she started taking about her bird and that she was trying to sell him. I felt so bad about what she was telling me, My husband and I went to there home 2 days later and seen the poor Neglected bird, We took him 1 week later after his blood tests came back OK.He was in a 18x18 cage and was in the basement most of the time. I am very sad to let you all know that as of 02-20-07 My darlin smokie passed away. he was very sick and not recovering, My heart is heavy with sadness missing all the little things i use to do with him, have him on my shoulder and dance to the music channels. throw him in the air and let him fly. i love smokie with all my heart.

The picture at the top of the page in my tattoo that i got of smokie, hes on my right shoulder and that was his favorite place to hang out so i thought it was very appropriate. it was worth the pain and discomfort

  VERY SUDDEN
smokie's illness came on so fast and he went to so fast too. thats how it is with birds. he got sick on friday. i noticed he was not eating and staying in his cage more. by sunday his breathing was not good, laboured and shallow. i had no choice but to wait till monday to get him into our local vet( no avian excperiance) gave him antibiotics both viral and fungal. but getting them into a sick amazon with doing more harm than good. Anyway i got mondays dose in. and put im to bed with a pillow on the bottom of his cage (just in case)), Tuesday he will still there and i went to work. when i got home from work i could tell he was worse. i opened his cage and he lunged at me and came off his cage. he fell and started to run away (like he was going to hide and die) falling all over and staggering, i just started to cry and told him" no smokie, dont do this" i just knew what i had to do, but i sure didnt want to. after working in a animal hospital i know you have to do it for the animal and know what they are going through. As much as i was dreading the phone call to the vet i had to do it.I am surprised he understood me.. I stayed with smokie and held him and told him it was ok. he was given some sleeping gas, i kissed him and told him i love him and then he was gone. My husband buried him in the yard under our butterfly bush... My tattoo came out great. A fitting tribute to my baby....nite nite darlin

Come visit me, Sam & Smokie.

  Dear Sweet Smokie
To your family I am so sorry that you have passed. We recently had a passing as well but had no idea of your passing. This is so sad. You were so very young. If your Mom does not mind maybe she could tell us what happened. We lost our little Pionus Spirit Wind on Mother's day and Spectra's friend Skittles passed on May 3rd. How sad. We have had such heartache this month. I have not spoken to you since December. I wish I had know or at least been a better friend and checked up on you. Your tender soul is at the Rainbow Bridge waiting for your pet and now my baby brother brother Spirit is with you and both are very healthy and happy and playing. Fly Free Sweet Smokie..
Love to you and my thoughts and prayers are with your family..
Carino

  night night My darlin
It is with a heavy and sad heart that i had to say goodbye to my babe Smokie, last week he got really sick and with no avian vet within 200miles i had to put him to sleep, he was sick for about 3 days before it got really bad, he got off his cage and was stumbeling around, My heart couldnt take it, i felt so bad for him that he was in such bad shape and there was nothing i could so to fix him, I miss him everyday and and heart aches to hold him again, we still have sam and love him just the same......

Come visit me, Sam & Smokie.

  Hi Smokie! I am so sad about how your life was before. You did not deserve that but you are fine now. We are lucky to have such good parents now. Looks like you even have company. Yes I have made holes in my moms shirt too and even bent some of her rings. Now she knows not to wear rings and earrings around me. I can't help it, but she still loves me. And welcome on the site Smokie.
