COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - A charity that trains service dogs for disabled veterans has commissioned a statue. It is of the late George H.W. Bush's service dog. It is for the 41st president's library.

America's VetDogs has commissioned sculptor Susan Bahary to create the bronze statue of Sully. It is for placement in the east wing of the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum. It is at Texas A&M University.

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

The yellow Labrador golden retriever assisted the former president. Sully helped him for the last six months of Bush's life. The former president Bush died last November at age 94.

    VetDogs makes disabled veterans comfortable or help them keep calm And if vet dogs were in a war with them it would help them get out of a situation like if a veteran was trapped a vet dog can sniff and bring another Vet to help them get out.

    I would make it him but he would look better and it would look realistic and he would be laying down next to the u.s flag.

    I would depict a statue of sully or another service dog by making the statue realistic looking and adding a superhero flap at the back of it.
