"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, that be brought to 41", the 43rg president wrote. Even after Bush died, though, Sully still looked out for his appointee, whom he began to serve in June, just months after Bush's wife, Barbara Bush, died in April. The couple had six children, including George W. Bush, who would become the nation's 43rd president in 2000.

KTRK-TV in Houston reports that Sully will return to America's VetDogs in NY and then join the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center's Facility Dog Program.

President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump are scheduled to attend. "President Bush was such an unbelievable man yet there is a sense of peace knowing that he and Barbara are together again and with Robin and just that it was time for him".
