  Proud pooch moves to White House
Updated 08 November 2004, 11.29
Miss Beazley in the White House
The Bushes will soon be having a new furry member of the family moving into the White House.

President George W Bush has given his wife, Laura, a Scottish terrier to celebrate her 53rd birthday.

The presidential pooch, called Miss Beazley, was born on 28 October. She'll be placing her paws in the White House for the first time before Christmas.

A spokesman said she was named after the dinosaur in a children's book, The Enormous Egg by Oliver Butterworth.

The puppy will be the perfect playmate for the Bush's other Scottie dog, Barney, who is four years old.

The White House has a long history of furry friends padding through its corridors, including cat India, and Springer spaniel Spot, who sadly passed away earlier this year.
