Photo gallery: Presidential dogs

George W. Bush’s dog, Miss Beazley, was just one of many to take up residence in the White House — and like many presidents, Bush had multiple dogs as president.

With Miss Beazley’s passing over the weekend, we figure it’s a good time to look back at some of the other four-legged friends who did their business on the South Lawn:
