"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,” says a statement on former President George W. Bush's Facebook page.

Miss Beazley was a birthday gift from President Bush to Laura Bush in 2004.

At only 10-weeks-old, the little puppy moved into the White House in January 2005, after Bush was re-elected. She sat in on many important phone calls and meetings.

Miss Beazley spent many an afternoon in the oval office helping the President unwind.

When not hard at work she enjoyed playing on the White House lawn.

While Barney may be the better known Bush family dog, Miss Beazley was an equally important member of the family and will no doubt be greatly missed. In addition to these wonderful photos, Bush painted portraits of both dogs which are currently on display in the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas, Texas.

I know how much you will miss her. We lost our pressious Spring, Sal, about ten years ago. We have her ashes, along with ashes of 2 cats. They were all members of our family. Our family now includes1 yellow tabby cat and 2 Chihuahuas and 1 Pit

Bull. They all live together in our house and love each other.
