I am sorry I have not been around much this week on Wednesday afternoon I lost a beloved pet of mine I had since he was 3 months old Shelby who is a black masked lovebird . He has been like a son to me as when he was a baby use to cuddle up under the collar of my pajamas and my husband and I traveled a lot in the 13 years we had him from Colorado to live to Cape Cod a couple times and then to Maine where we finally live. I took him to the vet on August 7, 2015 and found out he was really sick and being in the parrot family they are known for heart issues and he had a heart murmur not to mention unsteady on his feet and he picked his wing till it was raw that was the reason I brought him to the vet to make sure it was not broken. I was given antibiotics and pain meds to give him. I thought he was getting better be then I believe he suffer a major heart attack that is what killed him. He let out a loud noise and then he was gone. I am so heartbroken and in time know I will heal. I know some people out they may not understand my attachment but I believe other will.
R.I.P. Shelby … I still miss you and I will see you someday!
