Although Rex crossed the Rainbow Bridge 100 years ago, the memory of this good boy is still alive. Rex was the dog of John E. Stowe, an NYC fruit merchant who died in 1884. Stowe has a bronze statue of his puppy, Rex, raised near his own grave, and it is not clear if Rex is buried there as well. Acceptable.
Rex’s monument is found in Green-Wood Cemetary, and Stow’s deep love for his pup seems to resonate with many people because to this day, people walk by Rex’s grave and leave sticks for him. Rex is clearly deeply in love with his father, John E. Stowe. People have worked to honor the bond he shared with Rex and his master.
