#Remembering41 - Sully Helps Bush One Last Time

Man’s best friend was no exaggeration in the case of ‘Sully,’ the service dog assigned to former US President Bush after Barbara passed away last year.

He opened the door for him and picked up the phone when it rang. Sully, the four-legged friend of President George H.W. Bush, assisted him in his very last moments.

On the picture above, you can see how Sully is resting on the ground in front of the casket, his eyes closed. Next to him is the flag-draped coffin of the President who led the country from 1989 to 1993.

"Mission accomplished", Jim McGrath, the spokesperson of the former president, said on Twitter.

The yellow labrador has been working for Bush, who suffers from Parkinson's disease and had been in a wheelchair for a few years, since the summer. He has been trained by America's VetDogs charity, which links service dogs to needy veterans and people with disabilities.

When he received the dog over the summer, President Bush wrote thankfully: “A great joy to welcome home the newest member of our family, "Sully," a beautiful, and beautifully trained, labrador from America’s Veteran Dogs. Could not be more grateful, especially for their commitment to our veterans.”

Because of his very popular Instagram account @sullyhwbush, the friendly Labrador became quite a phenomenon.

He was named after Chesley B. “Sully” Sullenberger III, the pilot who became world famous in 2009 for landing a damaged plane on the Hudson river and saving all 155 passengers.

"He can do about anything except pouring a martini," McGrath said in June. "But don’t worry, he can send someone else to send pour a martini."
