Anderson Cooper Celebrates President Bush’s Service Dog Sully
There has been nary a dry eye recently in America as former President George H.W. Bush has been laid to rest. Particularly gutting? President Bush’s loyal service dog Sully staying ever faithful by the casket just about every time he could.
The viral image has brought many to tears, knowing the love of a dog is so fierce. Sully has been with President Bush since earlier this year in June, and was with him to the very end.
The two-and-a-half-year-old lab certainly has the love of the President’s family, however, they recognize that being as young as he is, there is much he can continue to offer to humans he loves so well. He’ll be going to the Walter Reed Military Hospital in Washington, D.C., working with veterans and wounded warriors who will be so thankful for his companionship and care.
Sully was also honored by CNN’s Anderson Cooper in a touching tribute to his loyalty and service.
Cooper was clearly smitten with the beautiful and well-trained lab, and Cooper gave Sully’s trainer, Valerie Cramer, thanks for all she does through her work with America’s VetDogs in New York.
Sully will be taking a brief ‘vacation’ before he heads to Washington.
