Betty White, Animal Lover: Actress Plans On Celebrating Christmas With Her Dog

Betty White is beloved by many, but the seven-time Emmy winner says she'll be spending this Christmas holiday alone with her dog.

"He's my family," White, 90, told People magazine of her golden retriever, named Ponty. "It's just the two of us for Christmas because I'm alone, and so we just have a cozy day all day. We look forward to that all year."

White is a famous animal lover and advocate of the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association, where she is a trustee. "Both my mother and father were tremendous animal lovers. They imbued in me the face that, to me, there isn't an animal on the planet that I don't find fascinating and want to learn more about," White told Smithsonian magazine in May.
