Photo: White House photo
Barney, the beloved Scottish Terrier of former President George W. Bush, recently passed away earlier this month due to complications from lymphoma. He was 12 years old.The White House made Barney star during his time as the “First Dog” by giving him his own page on the White House website.
Barney’s photo galleries still live on in the White House archives. The photos, along with the hilarious first-person photo captions, are extremely cute.
We’ve compiled some of the best Barney moments, complete with the captions, here.
My 2 German Shepherds wanted me to ask you the following:

Thumbs are overrated.
*Margaret Spellings was Bush's Secretary of Education from 2005 to 2009. This photo was posted when she was named to the post.
Caption: 'Operating the camera for the first time while diving, Barney executes a perfect 'Triple Lindy' and shares the experience in this exciting action photo.'
