Gypsy Jabbers: Bird Dog

I see the bird.

  2. Dove TV for Gypsy! Chance has Turkey TV and Squirrel videos:)

  3. I'm keeping you right in my sights!!! Great photo and poem!

  5. Oh, Gypsy, you better leave that mama bird alone!

  6. Gypsy, Gypsy, Gypsy. You are not fooling me.


What thoughts do you have?
