DALLAS, May 17 (UPI) -- Former first lady Laura Bush's purebred Scottish terrier, Miss Beazley, died Saturday, former U.S. President George W. Bush announced on Facebook.

"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," Bush said in the post. "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."

President Bush gifted the dog to the first lady in 2004 when she was just a 10-week-old puppy.
