Miss Beazley to stay at White House
President George W. Bush and his wife, Laura, got a new pet on Thursday, a Scottish terrier puppy named Miss Beazley.
The puppy, a gift to the first lady from the president for her 58th birthday in November, was born on Oct. 28. The puppy joins the Bushes' other two pets: Barney, another Scottish terrier, and a black cat named India.
Miss Beazley, named after a dinosaur in a popular children's book, is the daughter of Barney's half-brother.
The 10-week-old puppy, which was introduced to the press corps on the South Lawn of the White House, proved to be camera shy, opting to run behind a bush rather than pose for a picture.
One of the first family's dogs, an English springer spaniel named Spot, died last February aged 14.
