Spot with Mr and Mrs Bush
US president George W Bush and his family have said they are "deeply saddened" following the death of their 14-year-old dog Spot.

Spot was often snapped with the family and greeting the president when he returned from foreign trips.

Spot, an English springer spaniel, was among the family's three pets. He is survived by another dog called Barney and a cat called India.

Spot was born at the White House in 1989, when Mr Bush's dad was president.

"The president and Mrs Bush and the entire Bush family are deeply saddened by the passing of Spot," said a statement released by the White House.
