If You Ask Me: (And of Course You Won't)by Betty White
Synopses & Reviews
The story of a dog, and the extraordinary difference
she made in every life she touched.
After sixty years in show business, Betty White has earned her reputation as an American icon. She may be a bona fide television pioneer, but throughout Bettyandrsquo;s life, her heart has always been with the animals. But one of the most enriching episodes in her career as an animal-rights advocate arrived with actor Tom Sullivan. Blind since birth, Tom was one of Bettyandrsquo;s closest friends and professional partners. Their dearest collaboration was a mutual devotion to a golden retriever named Dinah.and#160;This first-class guide dog was more than Tom's best friend, she was a source of unqualified loyalty and love. Most important, she enabled Tom to be truly independent for the first time in his life. However as Dinah got older, as her faculties weakened and her confidence faltered, Tom had little choice but to get a new dog. The effect of losing her purpose was devastating to the once-gallant Dinah.
Then Betty gladly stepped in to give this great Lady a new lease on life.
What would transpire is a heartening and inspiring story of a dog who made a difference and who, in Betty Whiteandrsquo;s words, andldquo;helped Tom grow up as she has helped me grow older.andrdquo; It is for all animal lovers, for all Betty White lovers, and everyone who can relate to the unconditional devotion of dogs and the people who love them.and#160;
America's sweetheart, impassioned lifelong animal welfare advocate, and New York Times-bestselling author Betty White offers intimate and funny stories about her animal friends at the zoo, enhanced by gorgeous four-color photographs.
The New York Times bestseller from the beloved actress who's made us laugh on shows from The Mary Tyler Moore Show to Saturday Night Live! In this candid take on everything from the unglamorous reality behind red-carpet affairs to her beauty regimen ("I have no idea what color my hair is, and I never intend to find out"), Betty White shares her observations about life, celebrity, and love (for humans and animals). Filled with photos, If You Ask Me is funny, sweet, and straight to the point-just like Betty.
