(PIX11)– A part of the George w. Bush White House has passed away.

Barney, Bush’s Scottish terrier, died.  You may remember the pooch as the star of many White House Christmas videos.

You would often see the president himself carrying him onto air force one. Barney was usually very lively; he even nipped a reporter’s finger once.

Barney lost his battle with lymphoma.
