The world truly suffered an incredible loss after Hollywood icon Betty White passed away on December 31st, 2021. She passed away at the age of 99, just a couple of weeks before her 100th birthday.
As fans are well aware, Betty White loved animals and supported a number of organizations throughout her life. According to TMZ, one such organization will be honoring her memory in a huge way as well.
The CEO for Guide Dogs for the Blind, Christine Benninger, stated that Betty White was a genuine friend of the organization for the last 35 years. Because of her constant support, the organization will be naming one of their Golden Retriever puppies after her.
The puppy will be named Betty Rose, which is an obvious reference to Betty’s character on “Golden Girls.” The puppy will go to a puppy raiser when she is around 6 weeks old. Betty herself became a raiser when she adopted a Golden Retriever named Pontiac and was her puppy for many years.
It was also said that there will also be a tribute to Betty in October in San Francisco, where staff and volunteers will share stories about Betty and play a video montage to honor her dedication to the organization over the years. In addition to that, Betty White’s hometown will also celebrate ‘Betty White Day’ on January 17th, which would have been her 100th birthday.
