Grave of Rex the Wonder Dog.

Grave of Rex the Wonder Dog

Rex is located in the 2-acre Clara-Glen Pet Cemetery in Linwood, NJ, which originated in 1918 as a private resting place for Clara and Glen White's own menagerie of deceased pets.

Grave of Rex the Wonder Dog

I've heard that Petey, the Little Rascals dog, is buried at the Clara Glen Pet Cemetery.

[Tom, 07/30/2000]

Nope, sorry, Tom. Petey isn't buried here. But this is the final resting place of "Rex the Wonder Dog," who rode a boogie board towed by a power boat as part of a water thrill show in Atlantic City. Rex's tombstone is pretty dull, unfortunately.
