Sully, Bush's service dog, lies by his casket before one last journey with the former president

After accompanying the statesman and World War II veteran in the final months of his life, Sully, the late president's service dog, lay before the casket holding what remained of him.
 
 
 
 
President George H.W. Bush's spokesman has posted a photo of the late president's service dog lying in front of a flag-draped casket. Jim McGrath posted a picture on Dec. 2, 2018, of the yellow Labrador retriever named Sully with the caption, "Mission complete. #Remembering41." [Twtter]

The yellow Labrador retriever appeared woebegone, his head slack over his front left paw, his muzzle resting on the ground. Yet he was also steadfast, still keeping watch over George H.W. Bush, the 41st president, who died on Friday at his home in Houston.

The display of instinctual, animalistic devotion captured the reaction to Bush's death in a way that the words spilled all weekend over the Internet could not. Dogs, wrote the poet Emily Dickinson, "know but do not tell."

In his knowing pose, the dog was at rest. He will accompany his person a final time, as Bush's body is flown from Houston to Washington, CNN reported. An arrival ceremony is expected Monday at the Capitol, where Bush will lie in state in the rotunda until Wednesday, when family and friends will gather for a funeral at Washington National Cathedral.

Touching!

Not sure if your aware of the Real Irony here

 

The 101st Congress in 1990 both the House & Senate were controlled by a Democratic Majority

 

Over the objections of many in the Republican Minority the 101st Congress Passed the Americans With Disabilities Act

 

That act removed the ability for Private Businesses & Government Controlled Buildings to continue to prevent - Service Animals in & on their property

 

George HW Bush signed that Bill into law

 

 Just can't let a brief moment of decency slide by without interjecting negativity can you?


 


Here is a moment of reality which none of us can get away from. The Dogs name is Sully. He was named after the Capt. of the US Air flight which landed in the Hudson river a few years ago and all on board were saved. This past election Capt. Sully a life long Reb. worked to get Dems. elected, and told all that Donald was not fit to be President. That was also the view of the Bush family and that is fact. Now we should all honor that like Sully the service dog honored the former President over the next few years.


John258's and mickstuder's posts are yet additional factual and truthful examples of the kind of positive non-partisan realities that all too clearly and obviously demonstrate how vile and despicable the content of the last eight years of republican/conservative posts containing negative intents have consistently and persistently been...

 

The negative (unpatriotic?) intent in the content of conservative posts has been noted...

Dogs are loyal to the end.

 

"Greyfriars Bobby (May 4, 1855 – January 14, 1872) was a Skye Terrier who became known in 19th-century Edinburgh for spending 14 years guarding the grave of his owner until he died himself on 14 January 1872."

I Wish To Exercise My Fifth Ammendment Rights in response to your Question

 

Fifth Ammendment - Fifth Ammendment

 

Wait - Wait - Only The Guilty or Mob Bosses Take the Fifth - Right?

 

BTW - If not for Democrats - Sully - the Service Dog Would Still Be Banned From The US Capital

Shep Fort Benton Montana's faithful dog

 


During the summer of 1936 a sheepherder fell ill while tending his flock and was brought to the St. Clare Hospital in Fort Benton, Montana. A nondescript sheep dog had followed the herder into town and soon set up a vigil at the hospital's door. A kind hearted nun who ran the hospital kitchen fed the dog during those few days before the man died. The herder's family in the East requested that his body be sent back home.  On that August day the undertaker put the body on the east-bound train for shipment to his waiting relatives.  As the gurney was rolled out onto the platform, a big gaunt shepherd dog with watchful eyes appeared out of nowhere and watched as the casket was loaded into the baggage car.  Attendants later recalled the dog whining as the door slammed shut and the engine slowly started to pull away from the station, then head down, turning and trotting down the tracks. On that day the dog, later named Shep, began a five-and-a-half year vigil that was only broken by his death.
  
  • Shep's Burial Site
  • The Shep Memorial
  • Shep's Memorial


 

Day after day, meeting four trains daily, Shep became a fixture on the platform. He eyed each passenger hopefully, and was often chased off as a mongrel but never completely discouraged. Neither the heat of summer days nor the bitter Montana winter days prevented Shep from meeting the next train. As Shep's fame spread, people came from everywhere to see him, to photograph him, and to try and make friends and possibly adopt him. All of the attention was somewhat unwelcome; after checking the train he often retired quickly to get away from those who came to see him. Most people missed the point that Shep was a one-man dog. The bond he had formed with the herder many years before was simply the most important thing is his life. Food, shelter and attention were now provided by the railroad employees. That was all he wanted, except his master's return.  Shep was an older dog when he came to the station house in Fort Benton. Throughout his vigil the long nights under the platform and the cold winter had taken their toll. Stiff-legged and hard of hearing, Shep failed to hear old 235 as it rolled into the station at 10:17 that cold winter morning. He turned to look when the engine was almost upon him, moved to get out of the way, and slipped on the icy rails. Shep's long vigil had ended.
