Former first dog Miss Beazley has passed away. In 2004, president George W Bush gave first lady Laura the puppy as a birthday gift.

The Bushes say Miss Beazley was put to sleep this weekend after a battle with lymphoma. She was nine-years-old. The first couple says that Miss Beazley was a "source of joy during their time in Washington and in Dallas." The Bush family had two Scottish Terriers in the white house. Barney passed away in February of last year.
