Sully, former President George H.W. Bush's service dog, paid last respects to President Bush this week at the U.S. Capitol before Bush's funeral in Washington, D.C. Sully is named for retired airline pilot Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger III, who became famous for landing a damaged passenger jet on the Hudson River in 2009. The Labrador retriever is headed back to America's VetDogs in Smithtown, N.Y., where he was born and trained. Then, according to John Miller, the president and CEO of America's VetDogs, Sully will go for training at Walter Reed to help brace, retrieve and otherwise help the veterans getting care there.
