When we lost our first dog, Travis, it upset our cockatiel more than it did Chica. Petey Bird grew up with Travis
and worshipped him. He followed Travis
around the house, shared his food bowl, cleaned his whiskers. They were really best buddies. After a few days with Travis out of the house, Petey stopped singing. That was almost 5 years ago, and that bird has yet to utter one peep of any of his old songs.
Give it time hun, and let yourself cry as much as you need to.
