Over the rainbow

Last month we lost our beautiful Sunny. She had been ill for quite some time, beginning in April. After having some labs done, she was diagnosed with an infection and avian gastric yeast. She was in and out of the vet’s office several times and was put on various medications. We had to keep her separate from the other birds, so she moved into her condo full time.
The last couple months were a roller coaster – she would seem to get better, then relapse. Keeping her food down and her weight up was a struggle. But Sunny was a trooper through it all.
On August 12, she said goodbye to the budgies. We put her on a heating pad on my desk and stroked her head and told her how much we loved her. Then she was gone.
It’s been a rough year for the flock, and losing Sunny was a big blow. She was such a sweet, gentle, little budgie and we loved her more than words can say. I still can’t believe she’s gone. I hope she is in a better place with the rest of our rainbow budgies and her darling Dewey.

  1. Fly high across the Rainbow Bridge beautiful Sunny. I hope you’re having a blast with the other Rainbow budgies – including my Jerry. ❤️
