Thank you so much for sharing your story of your beloved Nanday Ning It brought me to tears. I received a special needs Nanday who was less than a year old a little more than 2 years back. She was unbanded, had been attacked by a bluejay and she was born without any feathers on tummy or back. Her leg warmers are not red like most they are ringed red and yellow. She had severe tobacco poisoning and I got bit twice a day for 8 weeks of meds to cure her. She is my best friend and protector. I had a greencheek before who was very independent, but Sadie doesn't seem to know she is a bird. She gets up out of her sleep cage and flies into greet me and snuggle until I'm ready to feed her. She even woke up in the middle of the night, unlocked her cage, open the blankets and flew full force at the paramedics in the middle of the night! They 3 had never seen a protective bird or bird no less to be afraid of LOL! My rottweiler only barked for a minute and let them in. All during my recovery she kept her distance until she knew I was on the mend, and once again she naps with me and spends all her time with me as I'm disabled w/ MS. She has been such a blessing in my life and I get attached to her more every day. I'm sorry for your loss. I can sort of understand as I lost my companion dog of 11 years that I got from the pound and trained her to help me with much needed everyday tasks. I miss her at my side every day, even though it has been 3 years. I never expected a bird could give so much unconditional love. She's quiet almost always unless the dog barks at the door then she chimes in. I calm her with a little clicking noise I make, then she's fine. Thank u soooo much for sharing your beautiful memories of your beloved child as that is what Sadie is to me. My children are grown and I thought I was alone until I realized just how much joy and sometimes frustrations she brings me. Thank you for Sharing Your special friend with us.
