Yes I'm also not sure I agree with the bird brain comment.

Birds (most anyway) are extremely intelligent animals. Being around parrots a lot of my life (my friends parents own bird jungle) I've learned not to underestimate these fine creatures.

I always liked the name Shadow for a dove. Grace is nice too.

Cheers,
Justin

Justin,
I think there may be a big difference between the intelligence of a parrot and a dove.

I think the sequence might be:
Doves - kids giving you a hard time at a birthday party show - Parrots. Smile

LOL I like that analogy.

I must disagree though. Although doves aren't as smart as a parrot per se, they are smarter than most people make them out to be.

Doves - kids giving you a hard time at a birthday party show - parents that don't do anything about it - Parrots. That makes a bit more sense.

I also do not agree with the bird brain comment.

Many people name their plants and talk to them, now its not that the person talks to the plants that the plants will look more alive, it’s the TLC and attention that the plants get. Its caring for a living thing. Kids will always ask what is your dove’s name because kids see the doves as your magic pets and not your magic prop.

Any persons that do not name a pet, lets me know that the pet has no TLC or gets attention. Not only do my doves have names they get 100% TLC and weekend dove boot
camp, meaning doves must be trained in the magic prop or area it will be in, and not put into your props or jacket at the show. I always say that Magician have to Practice, but a Dove Magician must have time for Training and caring for the doves.

I let the kids name the doves at the shows I do with any new dove. And the doves get names like snowball, winter, Silky, Milky, Milk and the doves stay with the names they get. The two new doves I have, now have been thru my dove boot camp and when I did a show with them, they got the name windel and peter pooper and you know why one of the dove was name peter pooper.


Vinnie all the best with your dove magic,

Maro

To Agree or Disagree on a thread I am sure we call that an opinion
and not an argument. Sorry you feel sad Mr. Buss, Don’t worry be Happy Smile


To others ready to post more names for Doves please do so and disregard
this misunderstood thread.

And to quote Mr. Buss words - “end of thread..................................”

It's sad that certain people don't always agree with certain topics, but there are people like this that come in and like to start trouble.

Name him Mr. Buss.

It's also sad that people don't have a sense of humor... apparently you both took me way too seriously.

You don't think it's a bit weird that 20 some odd people are talking about naming one kid's dove? I guess it's just me. But I stand by my (unintentional, yet apparently offensive) comments.

I don't have to name the dove... the kid already said he is going to name him "Jack."

Done

I have to agree with EvanMagic. I use six doves and their names are, "Fountain Production", "General Grant", "Streamers", etc...

For a little advice with your new interest in dove magic- use the same dove for the same trick each time.

Good Luck!

Hey there Eric, don't worry about some of the people on here.....some people just don't get humor and look for any reason to flame somebody. The people in this section should be asking you, one of the most original award winning dove workers out there for help instead of the sarcasm! Keep up the great work and look forward to seeing you perform again.
PS I love you in Fusion in Lake Tahoe! Brian
If your not having fun doing what your doing....dont do it!

Eric, trust me I have a sense of humor, and I apologize if I came off as flaming, that wasn't the intent. I've worked at various pet stores, and I just get upset when I see people that have the attitude of.. "what's the big deal? the thing won't know its name anyway."

And Brian, just because someone has an award winning show, doesn't mean that they won't take somethings existence for granted (not saying you are Eric). "Some of the people" on here just care very much.

Name for a dove? Why not name it after the magician who first inspired you to perform with doves?

Best,
