First Dog Spot passes away

The White House announced the passing of Spot today. Spot “Spotty” Fetcher was the daughter of Millie and was born at the White House in 1989. She was put to sleep today after suffering a series of strokes.

I’m not a fan of the President, but it is terrible when someone loses a pet. My heart goes out to the Bush family. I sent them an e-mail (I know they probably won’t ever see it, but it seemed like the right thing to do) expressing our condolences and asked them to give Barney an extra hug for us. I’m sure he misses Spot too.
