Remembering Dalai on his adoption day
14 March 2020Posted by on
Dalai came into our home on the 14th March 2016. He was, we believe, around 5 months old at the time, putting his birthday (or hatchday) at sometime in October 2015. I never dreamt that he would not be here for the 2020 celebration of his special day. Despite the sadness, I will take this opportunity to share some photos…
During quarantine, Dalai was self-assured & calm:
He made good friends with Bezukhov & Phineas:
Dalai was not always swayed by flock mentality & if he wanted to do something or be somewhere different to the others, he would go ahead & do it. This photo shows him, in the early days, not returning to the cage for bed & Bezukhov & Phineas coming out to join him:
He had more in common with Lennie that I think he would care to admit:
Dalai was not overly giving to others (flirting aside) though was witnessed caring about Bezukhov when he was poorly:
Despite the above, Dalai would openly preen Perry’s head & was doing this even in his last days when he was unwell:
Dalai was a big presence… much admired & much loved.
Missing you very much, Dalai darling.
Thinking of you.
