    In this Dec. 4, 2018 file photo, Sully, former President George H.W. Bush's service dog, pays his respect to President Bush as he lies in state at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C.

    A program that trains and places service dogs with disabled military veterans has commissioned a statue of the late George H.W. Bush's service dog for the 41st president's library.

    America's VetDogs has commissioned sculptor Susan Bahary to create the bronze statue of Sully for placement in the east wing of the Bush library at Texas A&M University.

    Program President John Miller said the artwork would depict Sully sitting with his leash in his mouth, the "retrieve" task VetDogs trains its dogs to perform. It will show Sully wearing his America's VetDogs vest with the Great Seal of the United States on its back.

    The yellow Labrador retriever assisted the former president for the last six months of his life before Bush's death last November at age 94.
