Have you ever seen someone 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 intelligent and loyal pets. Rex is a dog who died more than a century ago. However, residents of the city remember the kind dog who was the pet of a kind food seller, John Snow.
Rex was his owner’s beloved pet, and they never separated after their deaths. The loving dog is buried alongside John in Brooklyn’s Green-Wood Cemetery. He was the “American Hachiko” who would always love his owner!
A photo from his grave was recently shared on Twitter. It demonstrates that the townspeople continue to leave sticks and small tree branches next to his monument. It quickly went viral, and the most common question was, “Why are people doing this?”
Later, a Brooklyn resident commented, explaining that the sticks are a tribute to a special dog that their grandparents tell them about.
Residents who have lost their pets also visit Rex’s grave, place sticks in his bronze paws, and beg him for a favour. To look after their much-missed pets until they can reunite! I hope he’s doing a fantastic job with those wonderful pets in heaven! Rex, rest in peace! They will adore you for the rest of your life!
