Roy Rogers' Dog Bullet Fetches $35K at NY Auction

Thursday, 15 Jul 2010 07:02 PM

Roy Rogers' stuffed and mounted dog, Bullet, fetched $35,000 on the second day of an auction of the movie cowboy's belongings in New York City.

An executive of Nebraska cable TV network RFD-TV says the company bought Bullet to accompany Roger's horse Trigger, which the company snagged Wednesday for more than $266,000. RFD-TV chief financial officer Steve Campione says the network hopes to start a museum one day.

The preserved remains of Rogers' wife's horse, Buttermilk, also were auctioned Thursday. Buttermilk sold for $25,000 — less than a tenth of Trigger's price. Christie's has not yet released information on Buttermilk's new owner.

The Rogers auction included more than 1,000 items from the now-closed Roy Rogers and Dale Evans Museum in Branson, Mo.
