The service dog that stood by former President George H.W. Bush's side until his death last year started a new role at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Wednesday.
Sully was installed as a "foreman" at the hospital in Bethesda, Maryland, where he will help wounded service members, their families, and staff at the military complex.
Seven dogs work at Walter Reed, and they average more than 200 working hours a month as a group, the medical center said. Sully, a yellow Labrador, is about 2½ years old.
Officials at the hospital honored Sully with a ceremony Wednesday and gave him a vest to wear when he is on the clock.
Bush died Nov. 30, after which the nation mourned him during several days of memorial services. In a widely circulated photo, Sully was seen laying down in front of Bush's casket.
