Default Goodbye Bertie

I took Bertie to the vets today to put her to sleep. Needless to say I have been crying quite a bit. She was a young budgie but was diagnosed with tumours last week. You always hope that somehow she will suddenly be okay but since the end of last week she was hardly eating and sleeping most of the time, and her chirps had virtually become non existent. It would have been cruel to prolong her suffering. I know it was the right thing to do but I felt so awful. Goodbye Bertie r.i.p.

You have had great courage in having to make such a hard decision; one borne out of love and care. My thoughts are with you at this time.

Andrea, I'm so sorry to hear of your loss of your darling girl.

She knew how much you loved her during her time with you, and now she is free of pain and fatigue, flying high and free over the Rainbow Bridge.

May her memory stay with you forever, hugs to you during this difficult time

Rest in peace, Bertie.

Really sorry Andrea, it's an awful decision to have to make but I'm sure she's thanking you for having the courage to make it. She's now free of any suffering just as she was in your fondest memories of her.

You have my deepest sympathies over your Bertie's passing. As sad and heartbreaking as it is, this is part of pet ownership.
When we run out of every possible chance and the quality of life of our pets is seriously compromised with no hope for a recovery, then saying goodbye to them and letting them go with dignity is the best we can do for them.
Your Bertie will forever live on in your heart and through the cherished memories you have of her.

Rest in peace, Bertie. You were much loved and will be missed.

Andrea,

I'm so very sorry for your loss of darling little Bertie.
You gave her the greatest gift of love by helping her move on to the Rainbow Bridge where she will have no more pain and suffering.
It is because of Love we Grieve
and
Because of Love we are also comforted
in our Sorrow

In Memories, may you find Healing
In Time, may you find Peace
In the Power of Love, may you find Comfort.
Fly High, Soar Free little Bertie; rest peacefully now sweet girl.

Aww - how sad to hear about your dear little Bertie. You did the very best for her that you could, and I'm sure she knew how much you treasured her, and wanted only the best for her. Please accept my deepest sympathies - may your cute Bertie rest in peace

Default Lonely Spock

Thank you all so much for the messages it does help. Spock (Bertie's partner) is very down. I'm spending as much time with him as possible (most of the day) talking to him, and have now put the radio on constantly. He's obviously missing her because he's not cheering much and is off his food. I'm keeping a close eye on him and trying to tempt him with treats. Any tips for helping him recover from grief?
