Arlington Pet of the Week: Rebel

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Rebel.

The photo above may make Rebel look like a beach bum, but he’s a hard worker who chases bunnies like a champ and is training to be a therapy dog.

Here’s what Amy had to say about her friendly, energetic canine companion.

Hi my name is Rebel! Everyone compliments my mom on my name but she can’t take credit, I had it when she adopted me. When I was leaving the shelter I jumped right into the driver’s seat, we were going home and there was no turning back!

I’m a 3.5 year old Greater Swiss Mountain Dog mix who used to be a country dog in Staunton, VA but moved to Northern Virginia 1.5 years ago. Making new friends is my favorite whether I’m barking at dogs across the street, running around the dog park, or letting little kids pet me; I want to meet everyone. Chasing all the bunnies in my backyard is fun too because they look just like my squeaky toys. When I’m really good I even get to tag along for happy hours and sneak some french fries from anyone willing to share.

My mom wanted a travel buddy so I go on lots of road trips with her. I’ve been all up and down the East Coast everywhere from Connecticut to Georgia but my favorite was my first trip to the beach in Charleston, SC.

People like to ask me lots of questions because I tilt my head every time I hear the words car, dog park, or Petsmart. I figure if I look cute enough they’ll take me to one of those places. This summer I hope to become a registered therapy dog to show off my sweet personality.

Have you noticed a striking sculpture at Monroe Street and Wilson Boulevard? It’s the Museum of Contemporary Art Arlington’s newest installation, Make Your Mark, by Arlington artist, Adam Henry. This sculpture celebrates MoCA Arlington’s rebranding and brings the museum’s energy outdoors.

On February 11, come inside when the museum’s galleries reopen with two new exhibitions: Rebecca Rivas Rogers: Grey View and Crisis of Image.

Grey View, in the Wyatt Resident Artist Gallery, is an homage to “gray” and a snapshot of the artist’s process. Consisting of photographs, collage, and a site-specific installation, this show is an outgrowth of Rivas-Rogers’ visual investigations into places you see on your way to somewhere else.

On the main level, Crisis of Image features artists who seek equity in today’s saturated visual world by developing new methods related to the production of images.
