A Pigeon Named Spot — 27 Comments

    • Spot had a lot of issues, but I don’t think identity was one of them. Although, maybe he was trying to swim (like a penguin) in the toilet and I had it all wrong. It wouldn’t be the first time! LOL

  1. My girlfriend made me turn around in traffic to pick up a pigeon who was doing exactly as you described. But by the time we got back to him, he was smashed flat. My girlfriend cried. I’m glad your story was better than mine. I love seeing you on The Bloggess.

    • Oh, so sad! They haven’t always turned out this well for me… I saw a squirrel in the road several months back, and ran out to save him – it was already too late, and is a rather gruesome picture I still have in my head.

      Welcome to my little place on the web! The Bloggess rocks, doesn’t she? Just when I think she can’t surprise me anymore, she pulls another rabbit out of the hat. I aspire to do as she does, making people happy, and being so generous.

  2. I don’t know…I think on some days I’d rather have a pigeon with issues than my husband…well, as long as the pigeon didn’t want to watch hockey all the damn time.

    • LOL! Ah yes, my current/last (remember – he’s on the fence) pigeon likes to watch sports, too. *zzzzzzz* Oh sorry, I fell asleep just thinking about it.

      Welcome, and thanks for dropping by Darlin!

  3. I have brought home men who later crashed into walls and slept with their heads in the toilet, but USUALLY they do leave when “released”… usually… : )

  4. Available for capture, nursing back to health and release after a couple of weeks. Antibiotics not required. Have issues and want to see you *Swoon* LOL! Thanks for the fence sitting lesson and Happy Banging New Year.

    • Ah, my dear Apearl, that is exactly what I’m not looking for: I want one who wants to stay around, not leave in a couple weeks. My current/last pigeon is still sitting on the fence. Me, I’m preparing to fly away.

      Thank you! I hope you have a “Banging” New Year, too! πŸ˜‰

  5. Happy New Year lovely Kernut!

    truly a brilliant comparison to the ummm……unsavory men in our life.

    this only illustrates how dumb they are and how wonderful and compassionate you are.

    much love and luck in the new year!

  6. Loved the post. I decided to get off that fence 7 months ago and now I’m getting married (something I never saw myself doing). 2011 is going to be very interesting indeed!

    Happy New Year Oh Wise Blond One!

    • Excellent! And Congratulations!

      Bless you for calling me ‘wise’!! πŸ™‚ Happy New Year to you and your betrothed! (I love saying ‘betrothed’! Wow, I’m one seriously geeky romantic.)

  7. What a wonderful and inspirational lesson! You r an amazing writer Kernut!
    Luv the symbolism… Looks like a spotted Dalmation, a dog, a domesticated and loyal companion. Even named him a dogs name but in the end still a pigeon, a wild prey animal by nature. (hope I got that right).
    Ur post reminded me of the proverb: β€œIf you love something set it free; if it returns its yours forever, if not it was neverΒ meant to be.”
    I hope u have an explosive and gratifying New Year! You’ve earned AND deserve the best!!!

    • Ah, yes. There is a hidden message in the post… related to a recent dating experience. It’s funny how after my recent experience I was reminded of this story. They relate rather well. πŸ™‚

      Happy New Year to you, too!
