Happy Trails to You

Today, we were talking about making a little jingle or song for Bliss Boarding, and Scott mentioned Gene Autry and the song, “Happy Trails to You.” It’s an oldie, but a goodie, here’s a link to a youtube video from the old Statler Brothers Show. Enjoy!

Roy Rogers born Leonard Franklin Slye (Nov 5, 1911 – July 6, 1998), was an American singer and cowboy actor, one of the most heavily marketed and merchandised stars of his era. He and his wife Dale Evans, his golden palomino Trigger (horse), and his German Shepherd dog Bullet, were featured in more than 100 movies and The Roy Rogers Show. The show ran on radio for nine years before moving to television.

The Roy Rogers Show ws an American Western television series that broadcast 100 episodes on NBC for six seasons between December 30th, 1951 and June 9th, 1957. The show starred Roy Rogers as a ranch owner, Dale Evans as the proprietor of the Eureka Cafe in fictional Mineral City and Pat Brady as Roys sidekick and Dale’s cook. Brady’s jeep Nellybelle had a mind of her own and often sped away driverless with Brady in frantic pursuit on foot. Animal stars were Roy’s Palomino Trigger and his German Shepherd, Bullet, the Wonder Dog.

They were married in 1947. Roy died in 1998, Dale in 2001.

“Dogs are not our whole life but they make our lives whole.”
