Sully paid tribute to his previous owner, George H.W. Bush, and has an important message for Memorial Day.
“Each of the patriots whom we remember on this day was first a beloved son or daughter, a brother or sister, or a spouse, friend, and neighbor” – George H.W. Bush. Always thinking of my best friend & the bravest military in the world 🇺🇸 who made the ultimate sacrifice while defending our country for our freedoms. . . . . . . #memorialday #wrbfacilitydogs #SullyHWBush #SullyBush #bush41 #instagood #goodboy #DogsOfInstagram #TalesOfALab #InstaDog #InstaDogs #Dogs #AmericasVetDogs #GuidedogFoundation #labradorretriever
