goodbye sweet zephyr

Zephyr means gentle breeze.
Everything about Zephyr was gentle.
Her coo was soft and soothing.
She taught me what it meant to be
harmless, pure...
The peaceful dove has always been a symbol of innocence.
She lived a good, long life.
Doves have a life expectancy
in captivity of 10 to 15 years.
She was with us for nearly 20.
Goodbye, sweet Zephyr.
We'll miss you.
Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
Matthew 10:6


  1. Oh I am so sorry...God cares for His creation in every way....there has to be another life for her...and all of our sweet beasts that we love so. I adore your blog.

    Bless you, Anita

  2. Zephyz was as beautiful as her name.
    She must of been loved and well cared for, to have lived such a full life.
    I can see that you are a bird lover and so am I.

  3. Hello, Susan,
    I am sorry for the loss of beautiful and gentle Zephyr. Our pets are members of our family, and when we lose one, it is very sad. I am glad you were able to have her for as long as you did. Easter blessings to you, sweet friend! Vicki

  4. Oh what a sweet sweet bird....sorry about your loss. I have always wanted a bird..a dove would be so special. Your sweet bird is now flying free in heaven. Hugs to you. xoxo
