Miss Beazley, Former First Dog, Keeper Of Bush Cats, Dies
NPR ^ | May 17, 2014 | Eyder Peralta

Miss Beazley, the Scottish Terrier who graced the White House with her presence while her owner, George W. Bush, was president, has died after a battle with lymphoma.

Bush and his wife Laura made the announcement .

"She was a source of joy during our time in Washington and in Dallas. She was a close companion to her blood relative, Barney," the couple said. "And even though he received all the attention, Beazley never held a grudge against him."

As we reported, Barney died in February of 2013.

Miss Beazley, the Bush's continued, "was a guardian to our cats, Bob and Bernadette, who — like Laura and I — will miss her."

Sympathy to Laura and George, loving companions to the precious Miss Beasley. They must feel terrible.

You can tell the Bush family loved their dogs...unlike the Obamas who use their dog as a prop. When the photo op is over, the dog is handed off to the staff to care for.

Is this the Scottie that President Bush painted?

Cute. The cat does not look pleased. I wonder how long it took to get them to sit there?

W rolled into DC with his dog pack in tow.

No last minute ‘poll bumpers’, they.

RIP, both dogs.

Well, Barney needed her.

My heartfelt sympathy for the President and the First Lady for their loss.

I think your right. For me, it says a lot how a man treats his dog. President Clinton’s dog died when it was 6 or so by being hit by a car. Obama uses his as some stage prop, and seeming refuses to ride on the same plane as his dog’s. Bush loved his dogs, and it showed. Obama and Clinton, they were measly stage props to them.

I agree 100% with your comment. Bush was president during a time when our country needed him - 9/11/01.

Agreed. Dubya’s dogs were family.
