Former first pet Miss Beazley was put to rest this weekend after a battle with lymphoma.
President Bush posted a brief statement onÂ Instagram, along with a favorite photo:
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 â€” likeÂ @laurawbushÂ and I â€”Â will miss her.
