Buddy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Buddy
Age: Unknown
Gender: Male
Kind: Helment crested pigeon
Home: Pelham, North Carolina, USA
   This is my pet pigeon, Buddy. I call him Buddy, because he is such a pal. Every morning when I open my back door, he flies right up to where I am to greet me. Then he follows me around as I walk about in my yard. He is not in a cage, he flies freely, yet he doesn't leave. He is a Helment crested pigeon. I got him several years ago, but don't know how old he was when I got him, so am not sure of his age. We have become great friends since then. We live in Pelham, North Carolina, USA, so the weather is usually nice and he can be happy outdoors all year round! I never thought I would have a pigeon as a friend, but now I do. And honestly, I am not sure if I am his pet, or he is mine! Sure his leg band identifies him to the world as belonging to me, but that's just according to silly people rules, I suspect Buddy would say! In any case, we are friends.
