Great Moments in Cowboy History

Although playing supporting roles in numerous westerns it wasn't until Leonard Franklin Slye changed his name to Roy Rogers, married his third wife Dale Evans, and traded in his faithful companion Tumbleweed the Singing Prairie Dog for a golden palomino named Trigger, and a German Shepherd named, Bullet, did he become King of the Cowboys. Tumbleweed died alone and forgotten in the Motion Picture Animals Home of a broken heart while Roy went on to found a chain of restaurants.
