In a heartbreaking photo posted to Sully's Instagram account on Sunday, the yellow labrador - who was named after pilot Sully Sullenberger - is seen lying in front of Bush's American flag-draped casket with a forlorn look on his face. Many have also heralded Bush's 73-year marriage to his wife, Barbara Bush, who died months before her husband in April 2018.
