She's gone.

She's gone.

It was obvious from about lunchtime that she was going. She found a quiet shady spot in the garden and settled down, but her breathing became more laboured. I lay down beside her earlier syringing water into her beak, but then she didn't want any more.

I spent the last half hour with her, just waiting.

My husband arrived ho
me, came out to see us, and she had a heart attack and died a few minutes later. The last few moments were awful, and I'm relieved that my DH was there with me.

She was such a lovely girl. So friendly, so willing to be cuddled; always the first to try new food.

I'll miss her so much.
