Sammy came to us several months after his owner passed away.  He was self-mutalating his wing and had done some horrible damage.  For 16 months, we had vet visit after vet visit, and it would seem like we would get it to doing better, then he would start digging at it again.  But through all of this, he was the happiest, funniest and best bird.  On September 9, 2009, Sammy started digging in his side and hit an artery and bled out.  It was horrible.  I was devastated, but I think he was tired of all of the meds, the bandage changes and wanted to be free of it all.  I know he loved us just as much as we loved him and he was happy with us.  We miss him terribly and not a day goes by that I don't think about him.
