(KXAN) -- One of the family dogs belonging to former President George W. Bush has passed away. Miss Beazley, the Bush’s beloved American Scottish Terrier died on Saturday. She was 9-years-old.
Her official White House bio page says that her favorite food was cheeseburgers.
President Bush issued a statement which touched on the relationship between Miss Beazley and her more famous housemate, Barney.
“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.”
