Molly, You Were A Great Dog

Elvis and Molly. Better than a Hound Dog


Today we had to put our wonderful dog Molly to sleep. She lived to 15 years, two months, very old for a 55 pound golden retriever.  We are going to miss her so much.

I posted this picture years ago on ElvisBlog.   It was created by Carol Stephens, the graphic artist who did my two book covers. I asked her if she could replace the hound dog in the original photo from the Steve Allen Show with Molly. She did a fabulous job.

I have about a thousand other pictures of Molly without Elvis in them.  I’m spending the weekend making a slide show to share with my wife as we grieve.


May all you readers have a fulfilling year in 2022.
