Dexter is dead along with seven of the Tiels

Dexter, Henry,Tinkerbell, Max, Missy, Paco, Budgie Blue died horrible deaths.

I do not want to linger, as the last week has been an emotional roller coaster.
I do not like to admit it, but the tears have flowed over this tragic attack.

A tribute to my lost ones. RIP.

Omg, I am so so very sorry, I read the article and that must be so very horrible for you. Words fail me and I just don't know what to say other than My thoughts and prayers are with you and your survivors.

Oh no Clive this is Devastating!!! I am so sorry for your loss... Know that we are all here for you for when you need or are ready to talk... I have watched you on other forums and here and I am terrified to hear this kind of news. They were like your family and I loved seeing the mixed set up. Try to stay strong and give yourself as much time as you will need to grieve.

Oh Clive I am just devastated to hear this news. There is nothing I or anyone else can say at this moment that can give you any comfort. To say I understand and I do after losing one of my beloved Alex's to a hawk and another to a carnivorous marsupial doesn't really help you. It is like losing one of your family, there are just no words that can help.

Dear Clive,
I have no words for what I'm feeling.
I love parrots so much.
Tears are in my eyes, I'm feeling with you.

Fly high, little angels, and wait for Clive on the other side of the rainbow bridge. One day you'll meet again.

I know I've already said it Clive but I am so terribly sorry for your losses. The article was stomach churning, it was so awful to see the photo of your birds in that way. I hope that time will help you heal and just know that you've got a big community of bird lovers here who will be with you whenever you need us

This is absolutely horrible! My heart truly breaks for you and your beloved birds to be lost this most tragic and violent way. I am so incredibly sorry for your enormous loss. I love dogs, but I really think their owners should face severe consequences because these were members of your family and there is no undoing their suffering or bringing them back.

How terrible...your heart must be broken to pieces. I can't imagine how it would have been to enter that aviary...all of the birds were precious, but I know Dexter was even more special. I am so terribly sorry for your loss. Peace to you.
