Service dog of President George H.W. Bush lies by his casket for one last mission
HOUSTON (AP) - President George H.W. Bush's service dog is honoring the late president with his own tribute in front of Bush's flag-draped casket.
Bush spokesman Jim McGrath posted a picture Sunday of the yellow Labrador retriever named Sully with the caption, "Mission complete. #Remembering41."
The 41st president died Friday at his home in Houston at 94. He will be honored during several public and private events in Houston and Washington before his burial Thursday in Texas.
Bush received Sully in June from America's VetDogs nonprofit organization. The president had a form of Parkinson's disease, and Sully could open doors, pick up items and summon help.
KTRK-TV in Houston reports that Sully will return to America's VetDogs in New York before joining the Water Reed National Military Medical Center's Facility Dog Program.
