KENNEBUNKPORT, Maine — Former President George H.W. Bush is welcoming a new member of the family: a yellow Labrador retriever who’ll be his first service dog.

The 94-year-old and his new companion named “Sully” got acquainted Monday at the Bush family compound on the coast of Maine.

The two hit it off.

A photo sent via Twitter shows Sully lounging at the feet of Bush and former President Bill Clinton, who had been visiting on Monday.

Sully can open doors, pick up items and summon help but “more than anything else the dog will be a wonderful companion,” said an aide, Evan Sisley.
