WASHINGTON | The Latest: Sully visits former president Bush’s casket
WASHINGTON — The Latest on events honoring former President George H.W. Bush (all times local):
Sully the service dog has visited with former President George H.W. Bush’s casket.
The yellow Labrador, who served the late president until his death on Friday, walked into the Rotunda on a leash with Americans in wheelchairs who have benefited from the Americans with Disabilities Act that Bush signed.
Sully is 2 years old and named for retired airline captain “Sully” Sullenberger who in 2009 landed a US Airways flight in the Hudson River off Manhattan after both engines were disabled by a bird strike.
