Bush Family Dog Succumbs to Lymphoma


The Scottish terrier George W. Bush gave to then First Lade Laura Bush in 2005 has died, according to a statement by the former president.

Miss Beazley was often seen with the then-president and his family during their years in the White House, but she has been "put to rest after a battle with lymphoma," in the words of Mr. Bush.

"She was a source of joy during our time in Washington and in Dallas," his statement read, issued from the Dallas home he shares with Laura. "She was a close companion to her blood relative, Barney. And even though he received all the attention, Beazley never held a grudge against him. She was a guardian to our cats, Bob and Bernadette, who - like Laura and I -- will miss her,"

Both Barney and Miss Beazley were featured in a White House Christmas video in 2005 called "A Very Beazley Christmas."
