Yup. Leads to "fatty liver disease" which does away with many a bird. Also not a good idea to feed them seeds as they are also high fat. Just junk food, really. Even those mixes are a bad idea as birds tend to only eat the "twinkies" leaving all the "veggies." That is why most bird experts feed birds extruded pellets. Basically takes a better mix of the good and bad and fortifies it with vitimins and minerals. ZuPreem, Roudybush, something along those lines in terms of pellets are always better.

That is for parrots, cockatiels, budgies, etc., though. A canary, on the other hand, is a higher energy bird and can get away with a seed diet and more millet as a treat. Depends on the type of bird.

My mom puts millet out on several trees during the winter, like she is afraid birds will starve without her.

AWWWWWW!!! How cute! Took me a minute to see the pen in his paw (signing the card..heh) but it is very nice to have finally made Wolgang's virtual acquaintance.

I just wanted to say thank you to all of you for the wonderful comments. You are all amazing people and I am very thankful for wonderful friends like you!! Here's a picture of Wolfgang "signing" my Mother's Day card this year (the stuff he puts up with, LOL!)

HRMG - I'm so sorry to hear about your sweet boy...there is nothing as awful as coming to that point in a pet's life where you must make decisions...they truly are the most loyal and loving and honest 'friends' we could ever have.  I can't imagine a world without dogs or cats. They give us so much and as for nothing in return.  Just keep loving him the way you have been and hope for the best.  He sounds like he has had a wonderful life with people who adored him, and that means everything, so just keep on treasuring him each day that you've got him.  I'm sure he knows that whatever you decide, it is a decision made with love and respect for him.  If you can and want to, post a pic of him so we can 'meet' him.

Very touching conversation here and I simply wanted to butt in to send my best to your pooch and your family, HRMG. Having just come back from the store where I got Kiko (and Fred) some celebratory millet, you know how much I adore animals. Neither get this treat very often as it is akin to giving twinkies to birds, but it is her birthday. Adoption day, really. I pulled out her papers and found that I got her 11 years ago to the day, thus the celebration. I mentioned it before but I actuallly adopted Kiko to be a companion to the parakeet I rescued from a dumpster (yeah, thrown away in the cage) years before. Sadly, that parakeet died two days before Kiko arrived. Odd how all of this turns out. I've said it before but while Calvin gets most of the spotlight, Kiko has always ruled the house having bonded to me almost the moment she arrived.

All the best from my feathered and furry family to yours.

My mum had to make that awful decision on thursday - worse that she was at work, her dog was on the operating table and she had to make that call over the phone (11 year old labrador, good age for that breed of dog, but they found a massive tumour around her heart). She called me while I was at work to let me know and it was awful, but it was the best thing for Zoe. She was well loved and had a great life, just like your doggy! Enjoy every second with him All our animals are the same age, which could work out quite bad but I wouldn't change a second of our time together.

My sister gave her dog an arthritis drug, which they got for free because her husband was a drug sales rep. That helps. Their boy lived to the age of 19 and he was half collie half chow, a big boy like your's. Here's to hoping the drugs keep working. I could ask my brother in-law what kind of arthritic drugs he carries. He represents Merck, I don't know who makes Rymadyl. If it's Merck wont hurt to ask about it.

They bring so much joy to our lives, don't they? I think they are the best part of us in a way -  they love to play and completely enjoy life, even the simplest things make them happy. Our lives are made richer by their love and loyalty. Thank you so much for your words Spa, I can't begin to tell you how much they meant to me. Lucy is a sweetheart and she is just as lucky to have you as you are to have her. Spoiled rotten, I'm sure she is! So is mine, laying on my leather sofa right now. He still has that sparkle in his eyes and just chased a bunny the other night (one of his true joys in life!) and maybe that tweaked his leg. He'll let me know when it is time and I know it isn't time just yet. Thank heaven for Rimadyl that's all I can say. The aspirin just wasn't cutting it anymore and the vet gave us enough for a week to try and things just completely turned around. Very expensive, but his quality of life has improved dramatically and it's worth every penny and then some.

Bud, there is an odd thing about all of us. We feel we can not do pet ownership again after a loss, but then one day when you least expect it a animal captures your heart and you just can't walk away. Lucy, my dog now, did that to me. She was malnurished and looked god awful, but she was young and so sweet. I brought her home and never regreted it. I might have a few times when I had to teach a 1 year old how to toilet outside, but that was the only time. lol She's now a bit chunky, but not too fat and she's spoiled rotten. The love is just as great for her.

I should have stayed away from this page. I feel so bad for you.
Doing what you may have to do is one of the worst things one has
to do. They were only cats but I had to do it three times in a two year
period and it crushed me. One was 15, one 11, and one 9. I said I
would never have pets again because of it. Of course a year later I
had another cat. I never will have more than one animal at a time
again though. It's too tough to deal with at the end. I'm really sorry
you have to deal with it now. My only advice is think of the dog more
than yourself. Don't make him suffer just to keep him around.
Take care.

Thanks Spa, that means so much to me. He is 15 and my first baby. He made our house a home. He is having more bad days lately and is going through a tough time at the moment. But they have passed before and maybe it will pass again, I don't know. We put him on Rimadyl and he seems so much better. But I think he may have degenerative myelopathy that German Shepherds get. Either that or hip dysplasia. He will let us know when it is time, I'm sure of that. I don't want to do it too soon, but I also do not want him to suffer..... it's a very hard decision and one that I have to feel that I did the right thing or I will never forgive myself. So I cherish every single day we have together and treat him like the King that he is!

I know that feeling my friend. Max was about 11 1/2 when he was diagnosed with Cushings. I asked about the meds and they said it would only make his life about six months longer and the quality of life would go down. Needless to say, I let him be happy until his last days without the drugs.
I know how much Wolfie means to you and it will hurt. Hurts just as bad as the passing of any loved one. My daughter and I still talk about Max and Bella and we remember them fondly now, and on occasion a few tears still spill.
They come into our lives and give love and acceptance, and you will never forget it. I'm sorry your at the time the decision must be made, I know how bad that feels. Very sorry.

I finally saw Marley and me last weekend. I couldn't stop crying at the end..... now I wish I hadn't seen it at all. We are facing that same decision here in the next couple of months I'm afraid and it totally SUCKS!!! I'd love to see the movie Guido mentioned, but I don't think I can handle it right now.

I can't wait to go to the final Harry Potter film! I'm going opening night though because it's too crowed and I hate winding up with a crappy view.



Guido the dog movie sounds good.



Bud, Marley is tuff at the end but the movie is really good. I remember reading Marley and Me to Flora when she was young, and I was crying like a baby last few pages............so was Flora.

Braveheart is the best movie I've ever seen.  Often joke Chaucer, Shakespeare... and Mel Gibson???
