Former President George H. W. Bush welcomed the company Monday — a presidential visitor, and the others remain as a new member of the family.

The 94-year-old dog lover and his new service dog — a yellow Labrador retriever named Sully — met Monday on the Bush connection to the coast in Maine.

Sully had been formed, America’s VetDogs, a nonprofit that provides service dogs.

Bush aide Evan Sisley said the dog hit it off with Bush — can open doors, pick up objects and obtaining help, but the “more than anything else is the dog be a wonderful companion.”
