Washington: One mission is complete and another is just getting started. Sully the service dog, who famously stood by his «boss», George H.W. Bush, in the months before the former US president’s death in November, is back to work.
Sully, who is named after hero pilot Chesley «Sully» Sullenberger, was sworn in on Wednesday to the Facility Dog Program at Walter Reed National Military Medical Centre.
«It was [President Bush’s] wish that Sully serve other veterans,» said Sully’s trainer, Valerie Cramer of America’s VetDogs. Cramer went on to describe Sully as calm, loyal, smart and adaptable to all environments.
