On the off chance that you needed further proof that animals are infinitely more compassionate than humans, here you go.
Over the weekend, George H.W. Bush, America’s 41st president, passed away in Houston at the age of 94. In April of this year, his wife of 73 years, Barbara, passed away, and the photo of George staring at his wife’s coffin was widely shared.
In case you missed that one, here you go:
This time around the poignant photo being shared involves George H.W. and his service dog, Sully.
This from The Hill:
The casket of former President George H.W. Bush will reportedly be accompanied by his service dog when it’s flown to Washington, D.C.
CNN, citing a source familiar with the plans, reported that Sully, a yellow Labrador, will make the trip with the late president before going back into service to help other ex-veterans.
Bush’s spokesperson, Jim McGrath, shared a photo of Sully appearing to sleep right by Bush’s casket.
“Mission complete,” McGrath wrote on Twitter, using the hashtag #Remembering41.
CNN noted that Sully is a highly trained service dog that worked with Bush starting in the summer of this year. He served Bush shortly after former First Lady Barbara Bush died in April.
Yeah, I’m not supposed to be showing actual emotion this early on a Monday.
