Service dog to former President Bush prepares for next mission
SMITHTOWN — A photo of George H.W. Bush’s service dog surfaced in headlines Monday, showing the dog lying next to the former president’s casket.
The golden labrador, Sully, was trained on Long Island.
“This past june we worked with the president’s team to get Sully placed over there,” says John Miller, president and CEO of America’s VetDogs.
America’s VetDog has taken the former president’s loss personally. They had connected Sully with President Bush’s team after a recommendation from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Maryland.
“Sully was an amazing retriever that is what President Bush wanted because in the later part of his years he was in a wheel chair,” says Miller.
Sully is named after Chesley Sully Sullenberger, the pilot who successfully landed a passenger jet on the Hudson River in 2009. She was assigned to President Bush, a WWII veteran, when she was almost two-years-old.
George H.W. Bush’s former service dog will head to Walter Reed National Military Center in Bethesda Maryland to assist wounded soldiers and active military personnel.
