Miss Beazley, Former First Dog, Has Died
A former First Dog has passed away.
Miss Beazley, the Scottish terrier and onetime White House resident, died after a battle with lymphoma.
“This weekend our beloved dog, Miss Beazley, was put to rest,” former President George W. Bush said in a statement Saturday.
“She was a source of joy during our time in Washington and in Dallas. She was a close companion to her blood relative, Barney,” wrote former President Bush, adding on a lighter note: “And even though he received all the attention, Beazley never held a grudge against him.”
Barney, who was infamous for biting a member of the press corps, passed away in 2013, also from lymphoma.
It seems Miss Beazley was a friend to everyone in the Bush household.
“She was a guardian to our cats, Bob and Bernadette, who – like Laura and I – will miss her.”
