The third day outside... and I love it!!! No more shackled and chained, but free - and safely surrounded by bars! For the first time in my life, ever, I have been singing and shouting on the top of my voice. Previously, I used to be a very quiet and shy bird outside. Everybody is happy that they made the right decision in getting me a second cage.
A lot has changed in my life... I got married and moved to Canada. Of course I am very happy with my new life, but I will miss visiting Dandy! However, I am glad to know that he is VERY happy... he has a large aviary to play in and certainly doesn't miss his old life. We got a lot of flack from some people, who thought we abandoned Dandy, didn't love him, didn't even try... all I can say is that we always did the best we could, and that we always had Dandy's very best interest at heart. We thought it would be very selfish of us to keep Dandy in an environment where he was very unhappy, just to satisfy our needs. Perhaps we could have done some things differently, we did not have the knowledge I acquired later. Dandy, my sweets, I still miss you!
