Have you ever seen someone who is still receiving gifts after being dead for 100 years?
This story is about a wet-nosed character named Rex. We all know that dogs are the most clever and devoted pets you can have. Rex is a dog who died more than a century ago. However, citizens of the city remember the sweet dog that was the pet of a friendly food trader, John Snow.
Rex was his owner’s beloved pet, and they didn’t even part ways after their deaths. The loyal dog is buried with John at Brooklyn’s Green-Wood Cemetery. He was the “American Hachiko” that would always be loyal to his owner!
The people erected a life-size bronze replica of Rex as a memorial to him.
A snapshot of his grave was recently shared on Twitter. It demonstrates that the residents continue to place sticks and small tree branches near to his monument. It quickly went viral, and the most common inquiry was, “Why are people doing this?”
Later, a Brooklyn resident reacted, explaining that the sticks are a memorial to a specific dog that their grandparents told them about.
Residents who have lost their pets also visit Rex’s tomb, place sticks in his bronze paws, and beg him for a favor. To care for their much-missed pets until they can be reunited! I hope he’s doing a fantastic job with those wonderful pets in heaven! Rex, may you rest in peace. They will love you for the rest of your life!
