Cupid the Wedding Dove, the Pet of the Day
Name: Cupid
Age: Eight years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Wedding Dove
Home: British Columbia, Canada
   My name is Cupid, and I'm a Wedding Dove! Ever see people release white birds at special events? That's me! I'll tell you a secret - I'm a pigeon and not a dove at all, but 'Wedding Dove' sounds prettier than 'Wedding Pigeon.'

(Editor's note: Cupid, you are both! Your species, Columba livia, is called both the Rock Dove and the Rock Pigeon, and even the ones people call fancy pigeons are your same species.)

     I'm a special bird in lots of ways, but I'm extra special! I have a neurological disorder that makes it hard for me to walk, and I can't fly at all. Some people would call me disabled but I'm really not. I have friends, like my BFF Phoenix the Silkie Chicken, and I get to have adventures in the garden, and my pet-mommy lets me play in the rain! I love the rain! But she has to keep an eye on me when I do, because if I get too cold then I need help getting back to my coop.

     I have a big coop all to myself with a special heated floor. I can't really stand up, so I sit on my tail. This looks pretty funny and makes my tail all dirty, but it works! I wanted to be honored so I could tell lots of people that disabled pets have just as much love to give as any other. And personally - I think we're the best, because there's no other pigeon like me!
