“What am I doing for my birthday? Running a mile each morning has been curtailed by COVID, so I am working on getting ‘The Pet Set’ re-released, and feeding the two ducks who come to visit me every day.”
First released in 1971, “Betty White’s Pet Set” featured appearances by celebrities and their pets. The show is set to be re-released digitally and on DVD on Feb. 23, just in time for its 50th anniversary.
White is known for her love of animals, and it sounds like she’s had the chance to enjoy nature while in quarantine.
“The animal community is watching over her,” her rep said. “The virus is afraid of Betty!”
She also reflected on the one thing keeping her going during these difficult times.
“A sense of humor,” she told People. “Don’t take yourself too seriously. You can lie to others — not that I would — but you cannot lie to yourself.”
She waxed philosophical … “I can stay up as late as I want without asking permission.”
Rock on Betty White and Happy B-day!
