DEAR FRIENDS, YOUR GOOD FRIEND CODIE THE SENEGAL IS HERE WITH ME AND TURK AND BETTY AT THE RAINBOW BRIDGE. HE IS SAFE AND WELL. HE MISSES HIS MOM SO MUCH BUT WANTS HER TO FIND ANOTHER BIRD TO FILL HER HEART WITH LOVE.

IN MEMORY OF CODIE
R.I.P. 0CT 8,2009

TURK AND BETTY BLUE ARE HERE WITH ME AT THE RAINBOW BRIDGE. WE ARE GREAT FRIENDS UP HERE. SO EVERYONE DO NOT DESPAIRE AS WE ARE HEALTHY AND HAPPY ONCE MORE. WE DO MISS OUR FAMILY ON EARTH THOUGH. WE WILL FOREVER BE YOUR GAURDIAN ANGELS FROM ABOVE.

TURK RIP SEPT 3, 2009
BETTY BLUE AUG 5, 2009


Digger was found by my sister, he was sitting on the hood of her car chirping. She brought the little tiel to us knowing we had a spare cage. We search th neighborhood for the owners, called different vets offices, no one claimed him. So we made an appt with the vet to get him checked out. He was under weight, very scraggly looking, scared. Vet said he had been out for 2 or more weeks and would not have survived for much longer. We bought him a new bigger cage and plenty of toys and food. He met our other tiel, Maxi, who was 6yrs old then. It took Digger a year before he wasn't so nervous and would come out of his cage on his own to play. He had the most beautiful whistle and loved to listen to birdie music.
Sadly Digger went over the Rainbow Bridge on June 11, 2005. We never new his age when we found him, but he was with us for 8yrs. He is greatly missed by his human flock as well as his feathered flock. SweetPepper and Maxi had a very hard time getting over the loss of their feathered sib. Pepper still says his name every so often. I miss you every day Diggy!

  Hi ya Digger~
I'm starting early with my Christmas wishes to all my friends! Thought I'd start with my Rainbow Bridge friends first!
I think it's a bit silly how much work goes into just one day! I told mom I thought everyday should be a celebration and I think she saw the wisdom in it! I know all of you up on the bridge just enjoy the day and don't make a big fuss about it! I think that is the way it should be for all of us! Just enjoy your family and food of course! I am a zon after all and food is very important to me! I especially love having dinner with the family. It doesn't matter what we eat, I just like being with them!!
Please remember that I love you!! On Christmas morning I will be sure to say a prayer for all my friends up on the bridge and I'll be smiling up at you!!
Merry Christmas dear friend!

How did Kacey & Sweetpepper's vet visit go? Well, I hope! I hope Kacey gave the vet some attitude, because I know I would!

The Cuddler's stomach seems to have gotten used to the antibiotic because it's not bothering her anymore. She only has to take it for 3 more days. She went to the doc today and she said just keep doing what she's doing.

The Cuddler is taking antibiotics and feeling a lot better. The antibiotics really hurt her stomach, though, no matter how much she eats and drinks with them.

I sure hope Kacey and Sweetpepper have a good trip to the vet tomorrow for their tune ups! I hope they don't find going to the vet traumatic.

  Hi Angel Digger
I'm glad to hear that Angel Sally is behaving herself. She was dearly loved by the hoomans and they still miss her terribly, but they were worried that her toe biting tendencies would follow her to the Bridge.

Annie has told me about your fister Kacey's health scares. She is certainly a blessed and lucky little girl to survive everything she's gone through. I know she brings your mom a lot of joy and comfort.

The Cuddler has been really sick the last few days and finally went to the Urgent Care Center today. They said she has a urinary tract infection and she started taking antibiotics. She can't believe how much better she felt after the first dose. Now maybe she'll start playing with us birds again.

Thank you for the message from Sally. She went to the Bridge a couple months before I came to live with this flock so I didn't know her birdsonally, but the others did. She was quite a 'tiel toe biter so be careful.

  Hi Angel Digger
Your nephew sounds like a great kid. My dad, the Edible One, has an autistic nephew who is 7. He is really doing well but it took a lot of intensive speech and occupational therapy to get him to that point.

The Feeder will be 17 on August 26. Where does the time go?

What a great story about how you got your name. You're right, it is cute. I believe your mom's nephew must be about the same age as our Feeder, he's 16.

  Hi Angel Digger
I sure do appreciate you stopping by my page. We do have a lot in common. My parronts don't know how old I am either, but our friend the 'tiel breeder thinks I'm an older fellow, maybe around 10 or so. I know your parronts miss you terribly but I know they have lots of happy memories of you to keep them going until you are reunited at the Bridge.

Oh, how I wish I could have known you Digger. Your flockily surely does miss you, too! What a loving flock they are! They are the pride of the BC birdies! Loving & caring in every way! I think you'd be mighty proud of them with all the kind things they do for others. I hope this will bring them comfort as they miss you being gone from them. But it will only be a short while...in God's time table, that you will be apart. We know you are waiting patiently for those who follow. Waiting to welcome them. This is the hope that they cling to for it lessens the pain of your absence. Hold on good & true birdie. Your reward will be granted in its right time! Hugs, SamIAm
