Our New Feathered Friend

Santa was kind enough to bring BayLee a pure white dove for Christmas this year. She was so excited to see the bird and she could hardly believe that it was really, truly happening. BayLee has a deep and genuine love for animals. Caring for them is in her blood.
She has named her bird Snowball and everyone has fallen in love with it. Yes, "it" is an "it". The only way to tell the gender of a dove is that the males coo and the females don't. So far no cooing. Is it possible that the Dovers will have a quiet pet for once?

BayLee ALWAYS wears this orange glove when she holds the dove.

There is no doubt about it....this bird will have plenty of attention and love.
