I am beyond sad to report that my beautiful boy Bezukhov was pts this morning after falling ill the day after his 8th birthday.
This photo was taken on his birthday last week:
Those who have followed his story, will know he's had numerous health problems over the years. Aside from his 'PPC' (Poor Patient Compliance) he was the epitome of a good boy.... truly goodhearted, one in a million, selfless, sensitive, thoughtful &, unusually for a budgie, empathetic.
I will really miss his gentle & wise ways. He always forgave me for all the indignities I put him through for his health, so he was forgiving too. I think he always knew I 'had his back'.
Goodbye my beautiful Bezukhov. Hope to meet you on the other side one day...
I am so sorry, sweetpea. You two went through a lot together and he wouldn't have gotten to share his eight birthday with you if you hadn't cared for him through his health issues. Things will not be the same without Mr B.
Rest in Peace, beautiful Bezukhov (Mr B) xx
We are not Vets, Avian or otherwise. If you have any serious doubts about your budgies' health an appointment with an Avian vet should always be your first point of call.
So so sorry Sweetpea, rest assured you gave him the best life ever. RIP little one, fly high. xx

In memory of Pickle, my friend. 8th June 2012 - 7th August 2017 ❤️ Buddy 25 October 2015 - 3rd December 2017 Boris 11 August - 3rd December 2017 Ernie 12th November 2017 - 9th June 2019 Not forgetting little Perry. May to August 2012. Taken tragically too soon. Together forever. Gone but never forgotten.
Am so sorry sweetpea I share your grief and know that beautiful Bezukhov had a grand 8 years under your care and love, he did have a rocky road along the way but knew he was loved to the enth degree.
Can you imagine when we all go to the other side how many budgies we will be surrounded with? I take comfort to know they will all fly to us and each and every one of us will be a tree of love from budgies when we arrive x
Not forgetting Monty ✶ Pippin ✶ Alfie ✶ Barney ✶ Sir Wiggy ✶ Kipling ✶ Marley
Bezukhov was a model budgie in so many ways (I doubt if any budgie in the history of the world has NOT been afflicted by Poor Patient Compliance!), and such a handsome one too. You and Dalai and Lennie and Perry must all feel so at sea at the moment without his steady presence ...
Let's hope he's now reunited with Raspy, and Atilla is bossing him around, and Cagney is welcoming his old buddie with open wings ... xx
