Evelyn the Diamond Dove

It's just not safe for me to go into a pet store. I followed my oldest son into Petsmart where he was buying supplies for his guinea pigs that are now staying with me for the next 7 months. One bird enclosure had the name "Evelyn" taped to the front, and since pet stores don't normally name their merchandise I asked if she was a 'return' looking for a new home. No. The story was that she had been there for nearly a year, patiently waiting for someone to be interested in taking her home. Since I have a building that's been converted to an aviary I figured Ms. Evelyn might as well come home with me and hang out with the other two little Diamond Dove girls that I have.

Mom, thanks for suggesting I take a picture of her. Here you go!
very kind-hearted of you to take miss evelyn in. I am sad when I hear of stories of animals that have to stay in foster care for long periods of time because of breed or color or whatever reasons people pass them by. I hope she enjoys her stay at the Chez Denise!

Awww - that's a wonderful feel good story. She's a lucky girl and I bet she really appreciates it. She's quite lovely.
