Betty White. Just one more reason to love Golden Retrievers

Betty White is an actress and animal activist. She also happens to own a golden retriever named Pontiac.  He was rescued from Guide Dogs For the Blind in 2010.  Before that, she had a golden named Kitta, also a rescued former guide dog who had bad hips.

Betty was an only child growing up and only had pets as siblings.  She eventually came to love the golden retriever for it’s ability to read their humans feelings.  Kitta took care of Betty after her hip surgery, and she spent her 90th birthday with her favorite companion, Pontiac.

Once someone has had the good fortune to share a true love affair with a Golden Retriever, one’s life and one’s outlook is never quite the same.” –Betty White

I was born in the very early seventies, and grew up watching Betty White on Mary Tyler More, The Golden Girls,and more recently, on Hot in Cleveland and Off Their Rockers.

Betty was recently honored at The Second Annual American Humane Association’s Hero Dog Awards.Here she met Surf Dog Ricochet (another amazing Golden Retriever!) and agreed to match any donations that were raised on the sale of a custom made dog dress for dogs in need.

Here is Betty White  and Pontiac pairing with the Morris Animal Foundation to fight canine cancer.  Another great site that needs to be mentioned (and worth a whole blog post) is Land of Pure Gold.  This is a site ran by Rochelle Lasseur dedicated to cancer research in golden retrievers.  It is my favorite golden retreiver site on the web.  Click here to read a great article about Betty White from Rochelle.

Thank you Betty White, for all you do for animals!
