George W. Bush’s Dog “Miss Beazley” Dies and Weekend Links

George W. Bush’s Dog “Miss Beazley” Dies and Weekend Links

Former President George W. Bush announced today that Miss Beazley, his family’s adorable Scottish Terrier, was put to rest after battling canine cancer.

Miss Beazley was born in October 2004, joining Barney Bush, the family’s older and more outgoing Scottie, as the country’s pretty awesome First Dogs. It seems W gave the new pup to Laura as a birthday gift with Miss Beazley getting her name from the character “Uncle Beazley”, a dinosaur in Oliver Butterworth’s children’s book, “The Enormous Egg.”

In a statement posted on his Facebook page, along with many sweet photos, President Bush said this:

“This weekend our beloved dog, Miss Beazley, was put to rest after a battle with lymphoma. She was a source of joy during our time in Washington and in Dallas. 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.”

This photo, in particular, is very sweet.

And then of course, there was “The Barney Cam” and those stinking cute videos that everyone loved. In my house, they were played over and over and over!

Though Barney Bush, who died in February 2013, got most of the attention, clearly Miss Beazley was a star in her own right and loved by everybody. Remember this Christmas classic?

You were a doll Miss Beazley!
