R.I.P. Dude

Dearest Dude:

My darling sweetheart I miss you so but I am happy to have known you and honored to have shared the length of your lifetime on this earth. How can a little ball of fluff and nothing, weighing practically nothing, contain a heart of solid gold, a spirit of perfect silver, and enough personality to last forever. I never did take a picture of you honey but I never threw out one single feather from your little body, ever. I saved them in a jar. To me they were too precious to just lay in the garbage. I could not bear it. Each feather was touched (some many times) by my hand as I picked them up from the bottom of the cage, or rescued them from the whisk broom and dust pan. There are more than 15 years worth my sweetest dude. Thanks for those years spent with me. Good night, sweet prince. Love Mom.


  1. I am soooo sorry for the loss of your Little One. The same coloring as one of my trio, the Feisty One.
    And I thought I was the only one who saved each and every feather....
    I am in good company.


  2. I miss the sound of Dude and cherish the feather mask you made for me ! xo xo xo


Your comments make my day! Thanks for dropping by and we'll see you soon, I hope, *smiles* Norma
