If you don’t want to feel sad today, look away.
The photo of two-year-old Labrador Sully, who has assisted Bush since June this year, was shared by his spokesperson Jim McGrath on Monday.
“Mission complete,” the photo was captioned.

Sully assisted the 41st President of the United States after former first lady Barbara Bush passed away in April this year to provide support and companionship.
According to SBS, Sully was able to perform two pages of commands, including grabbing the phone and opening doors for Bush.
The service dog completed his last work today as he travelled with Bush’s body as it was flown from Texas to Washington DC, in preparation for the US’s national day of mourning on Wednesday.
Sully also walked in the procession as Bush’s casket was carried by Secret Service members from the funeral home.

Assisting with voting must be easier with thumbs. It was very nice of Secretary James Baker to help my best friend cast his vote. They didn’t even let me push the button! . . #vote . . . . . . #SullyHWBush #SullyBush #bush41 #instagood #goodboy #DogOfInstagram #TalesOfALab #InstaDog #InstaDogs #Dogs #AmericasVetDogs #GuidedogFoundation #labrador
