George H.W. Bush's service dog, Sully, is honored: 'Mission complete'

- Bush family spokesman Jim McGrath on Sunday night honored the service dog who accompanied George H.W. Bush during the former president's final months.

“Mission complete,” McGrath tweeted, showing Sully the dog. Sully's Instagram page showed the same photo.

Former President George W. Bush later “regrammed” the photo on his own Instagram, noting: “As much as our family is going to miss this dog, we’re comforted to know he’ll bring the same joy to his new home, Walter Reed,” the military hospital in Bethesda, Maryland.

Sully, a yellow Labrador retriever, became Bush's new service dog in June. Sully had been trained by America’s VetDogs, a nonprofit that provides service dogs.
