    RIP Barney

    "Laura and I are sad to announce that our Scottish Terrier, Barney, has passed away. The little fellow had been suffering from lymphoma and after twelve and a half years of life, his body could not fight off the illness.

    Barney and I enjoyed the outdoors. He loved to accompany me when I fished for bass at the ranch. He was a fierce armadillo hunter. At Camp David, his favorite activity was chasing golf balls on the chipping green.

    Barney guarded the South Lawn entrance of the White House as if he were a Secret Service agent. He wandered the halls of the West Wing looking for treats from his many friends. He starred in Barney Cam and gave the American people Christmas tours of the White House. Barney greeted Queens, Heads of State, and Prime Ministers. He was always polite and never jumped in their laps.

    Barney was by my side during our eight years in the White House. He never discussed politics and was always a faithful friend. Laura and I will miss our pal."

    WHAT A HEART BREAK!! BARNEY DIED! SO SAD ?see President Bush?s statement « Gretawire

    I never wish the loss of life for anyone to endure.
    A pet is so like a child....a member of the family.
    Many people, over time, have told me 'it's just a friggin' animal'....
    tell that to your 5yr old....to your Grandmother....to yourself....
    if you have a heart.
    A goldfish, dog, cat, hamster, bird......sibling, parent, child, etc.
    A loss of life in your heart can and usually will be devastating.
    It matters not what walk of life you involve your adulthood with,
    a loss in the heart is a huge loss.
    RIP Barney

    Very sorry to hear about barney....I love dogs too,its so very hard isn't it?.I wish dogs were like turtles,or parrots or us and could live the long life they certainly deserve for giving us the friendship,love and laughter,we have lost 2 now in our marrage 1 at ten years and one at 13,we have bindi now, she's a 5 yr old border collie/lab mix and I cant stand thinking about the time it will have to happen.save one from the shelter when it feels right to you, you will find another good friend to love or that special dog will pick you.it really happens.take care.
    Some people are more trouble than they are worth,I'm glad your worth something....Mrs. T.G....

    I've never read in the Bible that dogs go to Heaven, but how could they not? God created them, knowing they would be the best companion for man.
    Hang in there, buddy, and remember that the best way to ease the pain is to go to a shelter and rescue a dog who is also suffering.

    I hate that. I always got a kick out of seeing Dubya climb down from Marine 1 and set Barney down, and watch him scoot across the lawn.
    RIP, little buddy!
