COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - A charity that trains service dogs for disabled 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 George H.W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum at Texas A&M University.

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

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

    If I were to depict something, I would put in somewhere popular, where everyone can see it... if they wanted to honor it or do something to commemorate them.

    I think they should put Sully right next to a statue of bush because Sully had helped Bush in his final years a lot. Also I think the statues should be somewhere very public.
