Sully, the late President's labrador
A photo was shared on Twitter by the late George and Barbara Bush's spokesman that shows Sully (the couple's labrador) watching over his owner's coffin. Sully used to be by the late President's side at all times and helped him walk while George suffered with Parkinson's disease.
As a service dog, Sully will now join the America's Vetdogs, a foundation that allows war veterans with disabilities to receive help from four-legged companions. He will then be able to find a new owner who will give him all of the love that he needs and deserves.
