As former President George H.W. Bush is being laid to rest, his service dog Sully is among those mourning the 94-year-old’s death.
Sunday night, family spokesman Jim McGrath shared a photo of the yellow Labrador retriever sleeping next to Bush’s casket. He wrote, “Mission complete.”
Sully was appointed to the 41st president in June. At the time, Bush welcomed Sully, from nonprofit America’s VetDogs, as a “member of the family” who was “beautifully trained.”
Since then, the dog accompanied Bush nearly everywhere, even the voting booth during the November midterm election.
Sully will go on to work alongside other service dogs helping wounded soldiers and active duty personnel at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center’s Facility Dog Program, according to America’s VetDogs.
