This review contains some of my brief thoughts about your item.
Hi Aunt Dottie! You always mention your dear friend, Chickie, but you never told me that she had a bird. My best friend, Helene, also has a bird. Hers is an African Gray parrot. How interesting that your friend had a dove...
You wrote such a very sad story, Aunt Dottie. You know you wrote it well, when my eyes started to tear up! That's the sure sign of a good writer!
The update note which you included at the bottom, reminded me of when my beloved sugar glider, Rocky, passed away. Chickie put her deceased dove in a shoe box to be buried. I did the same thing with Rocky, only I clenched onto that shoe box for a couple of days. I didn't want to believe that he was really dead, and I kept pleading with everyone to check him to make absolutely sure that he was dead before I would allow my husband to bury him. I could imagine how Chickie felt, especially since it had been her dad's bird.
What an interesting story about how that bird became a part of their family! It's almost creepy in a way...That the white dove went into their garage and insisted on staying - The same day that Chickie's step mother died!
I really love the pretty name of the bird. ...And I'm also glad that you mentioned coo coo roo means pigeon in Spanish! Geoff and I will be taking a trip to Mexico in October. I can hardly wait to show off the new word I learned!
