  1. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi! I'm about to move out from my parents house, meaning I now have the freedom to get any pet I chose. I want a pigeon as a companion animal because they're so sweet and trainable.

    Napoleon and Paxy are looking for new homes. Napoleon is a fiesty former champion racing pigeon who broke his wing. His owner took him to the vet to be euthanized. The vet said "No way!" He can fly short distances *in the house*. In other words, he shouldn't be let out. He is an aggressive...
