President George W. Bush’s dog Spot was an English springer spaniel. She died at 11 years old in February 2004, and was sorely missed by the White House staff and the Bushes. She was the daughter of former President George H.W. Bush’s dog Millie. She was born in the White House on March 17, 1989 and was the only second-generation presidential pet in history. She liked dry dog food and used to sleep on a chair in the president’s bedroom.
