Thanks for posting. Oh, so sad!
I thought he hated ALL reporters — and that’s why Bush would bring him out. A truly lovely, beautiful dog.

Breaks my heart. May the Lord prevent the left from teasing George and Laura about this loss. I watched the Millie and
Ranger run down the south lawn to great W’s parents one day. There is just something about a WH dog.

As Truman once said ... if you want a loyal friend in Washington get a dog. Or words very close to that ...

I just lost 2 pets November 14th 2012 and November 21, 2012 and am still really missing them losing a pet is hard.
RIP Barney and thanks for the smiles you gave me

Man, I hate that. Me and my family loved Barney Cam. Such a good little dog.

Prayers for President and First Lady Bush. It’s one of the hardest things you’ll ever do, sayin’ goodbye to a friend like that.

So sad. I know what it’s like to lose your dog. Dogs give unconditional love. I cried like a baby when I lost my dog. :(

I always loved the Christmas Barneycam trips through all the decorations and pushing that red Christmas ornament around..RIP Barney. He is now on the Rainbow Bridge and will meet you there.
Sympathy to the Bush family.
