RIP: Former President Bush's Dog Miss Beazley Dies of Cancer

Miss Beazley never got the worldwide attention that George W. Bush’s other Scottish terrier, Barney, received. Yet, according to the former President, “Beazley never held a grudge against him.”

According to Politico, Laura Bush received Miss Beazley as a birthday present in 2005. The nine-year-old dog passed away on Saturday after struggling with lymphoma.

Barney had been in the public eye quite a bit during Bush 43’s presidency and had even drawn the attention of Russian President Vladimir Putin. On one of Putin’s trip’s to the US, Barney, who always held a “spot in my heart,” according to Bush, was proudly introduced to Putin. “You call that a dog?” asked Bush’s Russian counterpart.

Bush recounted that a year later, when he visited Putin in Dascha just outside of Moscow, “Putin asked, ‘Would you like to meet my dog?’ Out bounds this huge hound, obviously much bigger than a Scottish Terrier. And Putin looks at me and says, ‘Bigger, stronger and faster than Barney.'”

Bush honored Beazley on Instagram with a photo that many dog owners could appreciate. Bush said that Laura and their two cats “will miss her.”
