President George W. Bush and Barney (19/20)

George Bush and his wife, Mrs. Laura Bush had two Scottish Terriers, called Barney and Miss Beazley. Barney joined the Bush family after the 2000 Presidential election as a gift of President Bush to his wife Laura. The other dog, Miss Beazley was a birthday gift from President Bush to his wife in 2004, and arrived at the White House on January 6, 2005. There was so much demand for information about them that the White House created a website, Barney.gov. It can still be visited today in its archived form.
