Miss Beazley, Bush Dog
The First Lady named her 10-week-old puppy after a character from Oliver Butterworth’s 1956 children’s book, The Enormous Egg.
That Christmas, Miss Beazley and Barney, the Bush’s first Scotty who had moved into the White House with the family in 2001, were featured in the White House video “A Very Beazley Christmas” in honor of her first holiday in the White House.
The two Scotties — who were indeed biologically related — became devoted pals, and dog fans everywhere enjoyed watching videos of them playing ball on the White House lawn.
What Happened to Miss Beazley?
Miss Beazley was born October 28, 2004.
At the time this article was published in early January 2014, Miss Beazley, 9 years old, was living in Texas with the Bushes.
According to Mrs. Bush, Miss Beazley was distraught over her friend Barney’s death in early 2013. “Miss Beazley really seems to be sad… she seems a little lost looking for Barney,” she told reporters.
