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 on his Facebook page.
"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."
