Betty White: She Loves Her Animals


A conversation with Betty White from exactly three years ago (2014), as she had just at that time been voted the most beloved person in America. Listen HERE from my WGN radio on Steve Dale’s Pet World with Betty.

We began by talking about her favorite moments on TV.  At the top of the list was sitting with Johnny Carson and just chatting, off-air and on-the-air. She says Carson set up his guests to be brilliant.

Another moment is when Allen Ludden and Betty White were often poked fun at during the Johnny Carson monologue.

Pet expert Steve Dale chats with animal advocate Betty WhiteI also talk about mountain gorillas with Betty White, and why mountain gorillas are the only great ape species holding their own. We talk about about Terra Incognita Ecotours offering chances to see the gorillas. White talks about how their animals are there financial treasure, as she puts it.  We also talk about the Mountain Gorilla Veterinary Project. 

We talk about how cheetahs can suffer from FIP (feline infectious peritonitis). White talks about the Morris Animal Foundation and Winn Feline Foundation.

If Betty White, the ultimate animal lover, were to come as any animal…what do you think she says it would be?
