This week I had the unexpected honor of meeting someone I've admired since pup-hood, the incomparable Betty White.
My heart went all-a-flutter as she gently touched my head. I was so overcome with emotion that all I could do was pant! Doggone it! There's so much I wanted to say...
My Dear Betty,
On behalf of all animals, furry and non-furry, I want to thank you for your steadfast devotion to helping us, defending us, and caring for those of us who have no home to call our own.
Your love and compassion for those who cannot speak for themselves has touched so many lives, including the humans who have become aware of our plight through watching and listening to you.
Oh sweet Betty, if the eyes are the windows to our souls then your soul glows as bright as the sun, for the sparkle in your eyes reflects a bright and beaming spirit that brings joy to all who are lucky enough to bask in its glow, if only for a moment.
Your Faithful Furry Friend,
First Dog of the United States of America
