Former first pet Miss Beazley was put to rest this weekend after a battle with lymphoma.

President Bush posted a brief statement on 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 — like @laurawbush and I — will miss her.
