For those of you too young to remember, Rex first appeared in the flick, The Adventures of Rex the Wonder Dog, in January 1952. Rex is a white German shepherd and served our county valiantly in World War II. A veteran of the Army's K-9 Corps, after the war he was taken back home to live with the Dennis family. Rex used his intelligence to help prove one of the Dennis boys, Phillip, was not guilty of murder.
For many years after that, Rex and Phillip's brother, Danny, had numerous adventures. During that time, Rex did everything from riding a horse to swinging from a vine by holding it in his teeth.
And now, with the "Weinergate" controversy on the front page, with the Congressman neither admitting nor denying that the weiner in the Twitter photo was his, it is appropriate to quote Mark Twain regarding his take on politicians: "The only time that a man can guarantee a politician is speaking the truth is when the lying bastard has his right hand on a Bible and his left hand on his Mutt's head". Rex would certainly agree with this assessment.
As for Rex, he is getting along quite well, but growing long in the tooth as years go by. Fortunately for his fans, he went to Florida and met up with Bobo the Detective Chimp. In one of their adventures, the amazing mammals stumbled upon the legendary Fountain of Youth and drank of it. In an instant, the two of them were returned to their prime of life and have continued their individual pursuits. Rex was last seen contentedly licking his weiner on Twitter.
