“Such an incredible day back at College Station visiting with old friends and making new ones!,” the post read.⁣”What an honor to have this beautifully sculpted bronze of me to sit proudly among my best friend’s memorial East wing at the @bush41library. ⁣ Thank you @susanbahary for your artistic genius and to @americasvetdogs & @bush41library for making this evening so special for me.”

Only days before, Sully paid a visit to the statue of his former boss, President George H.W. Bush on the anniversary of his death. A caption posted alongside a photo of Sully with the President’s statue read, “Anniversaries are hard but made easier by being home in Houston. ⁣Here we made our last memories together…ones I cherish and hold onto everyday. ⁣ As I travel around Houston seeing your name and the legacy you left deep in the roots of this great city, I can only think of you. ❤️”

Sully was by the president’s side until his last day on Nov. 30. The precious pup was even seen laying guard in front of the late president’s coffin. “Mission complete,” the post read during the funeral.

George H.W.’s son, former President George Bush, commented on the photo of Sully, saying, “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 he brought to 41.” Sully was reportedly named after the pilot who landed a plane on the Hudson River in 2009.

President George H.W. Bush died on Nov. 30, 2018, at the age of 94. Following his duty to the President, Sully officially landed a new gig with the U.S. Navy at Walter Reed National Military Center following Bush Sr.’s death.

Congratulations Sully!
