R.I.P, good boy 💔🙏🥺
Rex is still a very good boy ❤️️
Everyone who owns a pet—a rat, a bird, a cat, a dog, or any other kind of creature—knows how truly special the connection between a human and an animal can be. If your home has ever been gr.a.ced by fu.zzy paws and a wagging ta.il, then you know that there is such a thing as eternal love. Visitors to the [Green-Wood Cem.etery] in south Brooklyn are celebrating that eternal love and the story will tug at your heartstrings.
A bronze statue honoring one of the best good boys adorns one particular gr.a.ve and you could say it really st.icks out.
Rex has faithfully protected his owner at the corner of Greenbough and Sycamore for over 100 years — and he’s still a very good boy…!
We’re sure that the owners who built their doggy named Rex this beautiful monument 100 years ago knew this feeling quite well…
[Green-Wood Cem.etery] in south Brooklyn is full of famous residents — from artists and musicians to Civil War generals and politicians. But one tucked-away gr.ave has gotten a lot more attention from recent visitors than ever before.
Rex is believed to be the dog of John E.Stow, who was one of the city’s longest practicing fruit merchants when he di.ed in 1884. For years, people have been collecting s.ti.cks and fallen branches to lea.ve them at the good boy’s waiting paws.
Green-Wood has become a popular destination for those looking to escape the crowds and enjoy nature during the CO.V.ID pan.demic. And as the number of visitors has grown, so has Rex’s stick collection.
Rex’s statue is a sweet reminder that no matter how much time passes, a dog’s love is forever.
Now how did a dog live to be 100… God bless furbabies 🙏🙏❤️❤️❤️
