    Elvis Presley Hound Dog Given to J. D. Sumner (1970s) It's well-known how charitable Elvis Presley was. Ever since his classic hit "Hound Dog" ruled the charts in the summer of 1956, stuffed varieties of hounds were sold as Elvis mementoes. Ones like this were sold during Lake Tahoe and Las Vegas events to benefit local charitable hospitals and organizations. During one engagement Elvis loaded stuffed animals and members of his performing entourage into a caravan of vehicles and headed for one of the local hospitals to visit and present gifts to sick kids. The King told sidekick J. D. Sumner to take one of the collectible hounds home to his grandson, Jason Enoch. It became an integral part of a menagerie of similar toys that Jason grew up with, and was obviously well cared for, as it displays minimal wear from the passing decades. From the J. D. Sumner Archives. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from Shirley Sumner Enoch.
