I know my name now, but when I first arrived at my new permanent home on 24 August 2019, I was told my name is Gypsy, Gypsy of Rebel Ranch. However at that time and for a few weeks thereafter, I thought my name was NO! But it could also have been drop it, leave that alone, don't touch that, Sit, Heel, or Go Potty. O-yea; I almost forgot about, Put your tongue away.

When I was about two months old, I was rescued from a Texas kill shelter by Sloppy Kisses Animal Rescue (link on Links page). While my permanent home humans went through the adoption process, I spent a few weeks in a foster home in Highlands Ranch, which is West of Denver Colorado. I'm supposed to be part Collie, part retriever and something else, but no one knows exactly what I am.

When I arrived at my permanent home, I was about three months old, weighed 15 pounds and my ribs were showing. Now as of the sixteenth of December 2019 (almost 4 months later), I weigh 43 pounds with no bones showing and I'm still growing! My paws are big, so I'll be a big dog when I'm fully grown.

WOW! On 10 December 2019, I got a new toy that moves and makes noise! It has four legs, a tail and floppy ears. I chase it and it chases me, we bite each other, growl and bark. This is FUN! GRRrrrrrr!!!!!! OUCH! That toy has sharp teeth!

They tell me my name is Rebel, Rebel of Rebel Ranch, but I'm still too young to know what it is. On 16 October 2019, I was born a Sable colored, Registered, female German Sheppard Dog with greenish colored eyes.

I was taken to my new home on 10 December 2019, the day before I turned eight weeks old. I miss my litter mates, but Gypsy and I are becoming friends. The only problem is, being several months older and much, much bigger than I am, she gets a bit rough while playing with me. She is so big, I can walk underneath her without touching, with room left over.

I know I'll be a big dog when grown, because my paws are humongous. Their bigger than Gypsy's! I'm also well on my way to being housebroken.

Gypsy and I were watching a John Wayne movie on TV the other day with dad and Gypsy was growling at the cows and horses. Dad said to stop it and we better not do that with the ranch cattle.

When I first got here, they told me my name is Rebel. But for a while I thought it was NO! Or it could be drop it, Sit, Heel, go Potty, or Put your teeth away. It's so confusing for a young pup!

Rebel's growing and almost as tall as I am. I won't be able to push her around for very much longer.

WOW! My little buddy is almost as big as I am! She steals my food, bones and treats, but I let her because she's my little sister. At night I sleep by her kennel because she cries if I'm not there. I put my nose up against hers and then she goes to sleep. Is this baby sitting? If it is, how much do I get paid?

3 February 2020

I know my name now, it's Rebel! I only had one accident in the house this week. I go to Dairy Queen once a week with mom, dad and Gypsy. Mom makes sure our allowance covers the ice cream. I'm growing so fast, that when I get up in the morning; I don't know if I should look at my paws, or my tail first, because they are so much bigger than when I went to bed. Mom fixes us a special dinner every night with home made beef broth, steak and puppy chow. I have to go to sleep now. I just got a new bone and it's bed time.

O'Boy do I have a lot to tell you! There were strange people here all week and we had to stay in the house a lot. We always have to go out on our leashes, then Sunday morning mom went to the door, opened it and said, "OUT." What, No leash? Rebel and I ran out and guess what? We have a two acre fenced yard (6 foot high welded mesh) and we can run all over. There is a big pile of dirt, I run to the top and I am Queen of the hill. YIPEE! We ran around for several hours, mom put a big dish of cold water out for us and now I am so tired, I need a nap on my bed. Bye for now. ZZZzzzzzz.

13 April 2020

So, Gypsy told you the news about the new yard. Here's my news, I'm bigger now. I mean, at last weigh in, I was 5 pounds more than Gypsy (probably more now) and I'm several inches taller. After running around in the yard for several hours, we had to come in for a nap. What's this? Mom said, "Bath!" I don't remember agreeing to that. What now? I'm in the tub with baby shampoo all over me! I'm being cleaned with warm water and a towel to fluff my fur. Wait, I have to shake! OH, oh, all over mom's clean floor. After Gypsy's bath, we both got treats and new bones! I'm sleeping by the warm pellet stove after my bath. What a cool Sunday!

Way back when I was a puppy; I thought I was going to be a big dog, now I'm disappointed! Rebel weighs more than I do, is about 6 inches taller than I am and she eats like a horse. Her bowl is filled to the top and she gulps it down, then tries to take my food. I'm a slow eater, so it takes me longer to eat my half a bowl. It's also getting very difficult to push her around like I used to do. She's pushing back!

15 May 2020

I'm getting SO BIG, mom and dad say I need to be fitted for a riding and pack saddle. What is a saddle and why do I need to be fitted for one? They say I'm getting as big as a horse and that I eat like one too! How can I be as big as a horse? I've seen horses on TV and they are very tiny! At least they look tiny on the big TV hanging on the wall.

A very big trailer arrived today and four black and white dogs got out of it in the pasture. At least I think they're dogs. Two are very big and one is very small. They're speaking a foreign language that I don't understand. It sounds like they are saying, "Moo and MOOooooo." Why can't they speak dog, so Rebel and I can understand and talk with them? We were told they are cows, Belted Galloway cows, whatever that is.

8 June 2020

Gypsy and I try talking (barking) to the cows, but every time we do, we get yelled at and told, NO! We only want to talk to them and don't know why we aren't allow to. One of them was my size when they arrive two days ago, but is now bigger. They are funny looking too! They're black on each end and white around the middle. They do look like some of the animals we saw on the TV, but are very different in color. Mom and Dad are talking about one of them being due to deliver a calf any day, whatever a calf is.

Rebel, I was spayed at a very young age when I was taken from the kill shelter. And no, I don't know what it is, but I remember my belly being sore for a few days too.

11 June 2020

I'm NOT a happy camper today! I was taken to the vet and left there most of the day by myself, without Gypsy. We go everywhere together! I don't know why, but the people there put me to sleep and spayed me. What is spayed? Now I'm told, "NO" every time I try to lick the sore spot on my belly.

Shepherd Pony, that's a good one Rebel!!!! I once heard someone say something about a Shetland Pony being a small horse, but I never heard of a Shepherd Pony. However, Dad once said you were getting as big as a horse and that you ate like one. It sounds like he is comparing you to a Shetland...

...Ya know, now that I think about it, you are very big! Are you sure you're not a horse, a Shepherd Pony Horse?

27 June 2020

Gypsy! Dad just said I was big enough to be a "Shepherd Pony." What's That?

1 August 2020

We have a new baby on the ranch! A Black & White, Belted Galloway heifer calf was born yesterday morning. Mom and Dad said, "she is the first calf to be born on our new ranch."

1 August 2020

The new calf is smaller than I am! I heard her name is "Calamity Jane" and I want to play with her. But every time I try talking to her (barking), Mom and Dad tell me, "NO!" They won't let me go anywhere near her. I wonder why?

24 August 2020

Hey Rebel! Guess what! One year ago today, I came to my forever home. I was living in a foster home in Highlands Ranch (Colorado) and my foster mom told me my forever parents are coming today. I was very nervous, but she told me they were real nice people. When they came to pick me up, the lady held me on her lap and asked me if I would like to be their forever dog. I wasn't sure what living on a ranch would be like, but I decided to go home with them. They bought me a new collar, leash and toys and I'm VERY happy now! We are all going out for my anniversary and I'm sure there will be a Dairy Queen at the end of the day. I'm really turning into a ranch dog! I bark to scare away all the animals that don't belong here. What do you think of that Rebel?

24 August 2020

Wow Gypsy, that's quite a story! I don't remember having a home before this one. Was I adopted too? I know I'm not old enough for an anniversary, because I haven't had a birthday yet. Do you think we can talk mom into a SUPER BIG Dairy Queen?
