      I had to euthanize my beautiful Cockatiel Bud this week, and I just wanted to take a minute to joual about him and remember him.

      My son came home from school one day with this bird in a cage, from a friend who didn't want it anymore. I thought Oh great …. something else to take care of … a cage that's going to need cleaning… and what kind of a pet is a bird anyway?

      Little did I know that over the next 16 years I was going to discover that a bird is a wonderful pet. They are very intelligent, love to talk to you, and most wonderfully of all …. love to sing. He sang me through many ups and downs, trials and tribulations, and was always there swinging on his swing, playing with his little bell that he loved, and chirping away to one and all. The house is awfully quiet now without him.

      One thing I didn't like though, was seeing him in a cage. He got out on us a couple of times, and when he flew he had beautiul, big wings with white tips, and I always felt sad that he wasn't able to fly and be free as birds should be. So that is what I comfort myself with now, I see him flying around heaven, and stretching those wings for the sun to glisten off, and chortling away to himself Pretty bird, pretty bird. (Those were the two words he always delighted in saying to to us, over and over, as he danced back and forth on his perch.)

      I'm grateful I was able to give him the gift of euthanasia, as he sickened very quickly and was in terrible pain. They wrapped him in a fleece blanket, and gave him to me to rock and cuddle, as he gently closed his eyes and slipped away. I miss him so much, but my heart is at peace as I watch the wild birds soaring in the sky and know he is soaring now too.

                        "Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."
