Lovie will be sorely missed
Lovie our very beautiful Lovebird passed away today. He was such an amazing Ambassador and he will be sorely missed in our presentations. He was just a wee thing, but his gentle nature was as big as an eagle. He brightened many people's lives and was a star among our youngest audiences because they could hold and pet him to their heart's content. Lovie enjoyed being held and riding on shoulders. He also loved shredding paper and tossing all the yucky veggies out of his dish so he could see what juicy morsel was hidden underneath. His best friend, Ray the Rainbow Lorikeet, will also miss his calm and cool friend. They lived together for 3 years and were a great duo.
Lovie struggled with problems with his beak for several years. He received the best vet care and went through many procedures to try to cure him. He ultimately was diagnosed with cancer and passed away quietly while being cradled in Jessi's hands. We miss you already Lovie! May you rest in peace.
