The service dog that provided support and companionship to President Bush was treated as a member of the family as Bush's casket left a Houston funeral home last December.

Sully was returned to America's VetDogs in New York before joining the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center's Facility Dog Program, where he is assisting with physical and occupational therapy to wounded soldiers and active duty personnel.
