Barney's gotten a lot of attention during his years in the White House. His has his own section of the White House's web site. And he makes a yearly Christmas video, called the Barney Christmas Saga. Last year's plot involved various evil Bush administration officials trying to get him to do the video—but Barney just wanted to play! You might remember that Bush used to have a pal for Barney, a dog named Spot. Spot was the star of the 2002 White house correspondents dinner presentation. Hey, whatever happened to Spot? Oh. He died in 2004.
Here's a lovely Barney moment, documented by Wonkette—Bush and Barney demonstrate their respect for military decorum! Here's a list of his films, taken from the actual White House website:
He has also starred in several "films" available on the White House web site including Barney Cam I (2002), Barney and Spot's Winter Wonderland (2003), Barney Cam II (2003), Where in the White House is Miss Beazley? (Barney Cam III, 2004), Barney has found Miss Beazley (2005), Barney and Miss Beazley's Spring Garden Tour (2005), A Very Beazley Christmas (Barney Cam IV, 2005), and Barney's Holiday Extravaganza (Barney Cam V, 2006).And soon as the new Obama puppy is adopted, we're expecting a congratulatory call from Barney. As part of this retrospective, here's our favorite Barney Christmas Special:
