WASHINGTON | Good boy: Sully the service dog visits Bush’s casket
WASHINGTON — It’s often said that if you want a friend in Washington, get a dog.
For the last six months, Sully the service dog was President George H.W. Bush’s. The yellow Labrador Retriever visited the president’s casket in the Capitol Rotunda Tuesday alongside people in wheelchairs who benefited from the Americans With Disabilities Act that Bush signed in 1990.
John Miller, the president and CEO of America’s VetDogs, said the Bush family contacted Walter Reed National Military Medical Center after the late president’s wife of 73 years, Barbara, died in April.
