A former First Dog has passed away.

Miss Beazley, the Scottish terrier and onetime White House resident, died after a battle with lymphoma.

"This weekend our beloved dog, Miss Beazley, was put to rest," former President George W. Bush said in a statement Saturday.

"She was a source of joy during our time in Washington and in Dallas. She was a close companion to her blood relative, Barney," wrote former President Bush, adding on a lighter note: "And even though he received all the attention, Beazley never held a grudge against him."

Barney, who was infamous for biting a member of the press corps, passed away in 2013, also from lymphoma.

It seems Miss Beazley was a friend to everyone in the Bush household.

"She was a guardian to our cats, Bob and Bernadette, who – like Laura and I – will miss her."
