Goodbye my sweet boy

by Conrad

Barney, my blue fronted Amazon parrot lost his 2 year battle with aspergillosis Sunday morning. I've had him for 22 short years, he was 32 years old. I'm having a very hard time dealing with his death. It's taking a lot more out of me than I ever thought that it would.

I feel so guilty about the times that I yelled at him to shut up that squawking! He just wanted attention or something that I was eating. Sometimes he just wanted to squawk. I'd take it all back if I could.

We have three dogs, a mini Dachshund and two Dachshund/Yorkie mixes, Dorkies. All three of them are mourning Barney in their own way. I sat down and cried with them. Let me tell you, it's hard to cry while you have three dogs cutting up and licking your tears away.

I know that Barn will be giving 'em all heck at the Rainbow Bridge.

God's speed my sweet boy. I'll miss you every day.
