President George H.W. Bush's faithful companion since the death of his wife will be reassigned. The president received a golden lab from America's VetDogs last June. The organization provides service dogs to veterans in need.
With the president's passing, "Sully" will spend the holidays at the group's New York headquarters. Sully H.W. Bush, a yellow Labrador, will be traveling with Bush's casket on his flight to Washington, D.C., according to our TV partner KPRC Channel 2.
According to Sully's InstaGram page he will be joining the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center's Facility Dog Program, providing physical and occupational therapy to recovering soldiers.
John Miller, President and CEO of America's VetDogs released a statement reading in part, "It was truly an honor to have provided service dog Sully to be by the president's side for the past several months. As a true patriot and a visionary, President Bush will forever be viewed by people with disabilities and their families as a hero through his efforts to enact the Americans with Disabilities Act."
