The vet called me about half an hour ago.

My beautiful, sweet, wonderful Dolce died around 6:20 this evening.

Needless to say I'm a basket case over here. The vet said he had a seizure and it seems like it was something neurological or maybe a toxin. He's going to do an autopsy. I want to know what happened. I don't want any other flock members getting sick.

I can't believe that I'm never going to have that little head burrow under my braid again. That he's not going to be snuggling under my chin or against my neck. That I'm not going to hear his sweetest of sweet whistles.

I feel horrible. I feel guilty, I feel like a bad mom. I wish I could have been with him. He was all alone for the last 4 or 5 hours. The last thing I did was hand him off to some stranger.

I want to snuggle with him again. I want to watch him get all excited when I give him a head scritch. I want to watch him get ridiculously wet and get me wet and get the entire bathroom wet while he takes a bath.

Be prepared for lots and lots of unpublished Dolce pictures to be showing up.

I don't know what to do.

You're not a bad mom sweetie. You did the best things you could for him, and just watching the two of you together I know there wasn't a happier bird out there. I know it doesn't help now, but you'll see him again someday. Take care of you, and I'll talk to you again when I get home from work. I'll be thinking of you tonight! (((((HUGS))))

~Love ya!~
