Rebel- Dog Story

Rebels previous “owner” gave him up when his fiancé gave the ultimatum- “Him or Me”. This turned out to be a magnificent gain for Marty, for whom Rebel became the next family member. Rebel was a dog who was bubbling over with personality- he was joyful and elegant and playful. He loved to lunge onto then lounge upon his yellow rubber raft in the pool. If the kids pretended to be drowning in the water he would swim to them and attempt to be a lifeguard. He had a sense of humor- when workers were re-roofing the house and one would start down the ladder he would stand at the bottom and growl in a way that made clear that it was a tease, not a threat. One night when watching a TV program about animals with the human companions, Rebel dashed outside to lift his leg then dashed back in to finish the program.
Marty had him for three years. He died at age 5 due to the negligence of a dog sitter. Hearts are still broken.
