Former first dog Buddy killed by car
CHAPPAQUA, New York (CNN) --
... Clinton received a 3-month-old Buddy as a gift in December 1997, weeks before the surfacing of the Monica Lewinsky scandal, which ended with Clinton being impeached by the House and found not guilty by the Senate.
The dog's namesake was Clinton's great-uncle, Henry Oren "Buddy" Grisham, who died in June of 1997. Clinton said at the time that Grisham was a father figure to him, in addition to having been a dog trainer for 50 years.
Buddy, a chocolate Labrador retriever, was frequently seen at the president's side at the White House and on travels, and joine d Clinton when he moved to New York one year ago.
