The late George H. W. Bush’s former service dog, Sully, has been immortalized in a new statue, which was unveiled in Texas on Monday.

The Labrador retriever posed along his new statue in a photo shared on the America’s Vetdogs Facebook page on Tuesday.

In the cute pic, Sully sits next to the work of art, even imitating the pose with his leash in his mouth. The statue was created by sculptor Susan Bahary, who was asked by America’s Vetdogs to make a life-size version of Sully for the George H. W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum in College Station, Texas.

Members of the public can visit the statue starting on Friday.

The unveiling came one year and two days after Bush died at the age of 94.

At the time, Sully made headlines when his Instagram account shared a photo of him looking sad in front of Bush’s casket. Sully now works as a facility dog at Walter Reed National Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.

Prior to visiting his statue, Sully appeared to have fun at the Houston Texans’ NFL match against the New England Patriots at NRG Stadium.
