Sully is a star.

He has his own Instagram page with over 183,000 followers. His image has been seen on socks worn by President George H. W. Bush, who was also his best friend. He was seen accompanying Bush while he was voting in the midterms. A heartbreaking photo of him lying by the president’s coffin has gone viral. Did I mention Sully is a dog? A yellow lab, to be specific.

Sully is a service dog for veterans, which was appropriate for Bush who was a World War II naval veteran, the youngest aviator at the time in the U.S. Navy, and shot down over the Bonin Islands.

Sully was acquired by Bush after the passing of Barbara. Sully completed his mission of serving Bush, and instead of staying with the Bush family, he will now take on new missions to help other veterans at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. President George W Bush said in a statement, “As much as our family is going to miss this dog, we’re comforted to know he’ll bring the same joy to his new home.”

Sully came from America’s VetDogs, and they are usually sent to another assignment.

The Bush family is dog people. Bush 41 brought Millie, a Springer Spaniel to the White House, and she even “wrote” a book. Millie gave birth to one litter of puppies and one of those, Spot, returned to the White House with Bush 43, which made him the first second-generation First Dog. Spot was accompanied by Barney, a Scotty. Barney once bit a reporter, which might give Trump second thoughts about having his own dog in the White House.

It was questioned whether Trump would be welcomed to the funeral of the 41st president, as the family is not a fan of his, and he wasn’t welcomed at the funeral for Barbara Bush. But, being a sitting president, Trump will be in attendance though he has not been invited to give a eulogy. There are concerns Trump will…sully things up, knock things over, leave a stain, etc.

There is no doubt Sully is welcomed. Sometimes, dogs are better people than people.

Be Complicit

What kind of person would want to be part of something that disparages, slanders, and disrespects Dear Leader and his sycophantic followers? Hopefully, you. 
Making a contribution supports my work and keeps the cartoons, columns, and videos coming. My income is from newspapers that subscribe to my work and small contributors. George Soros hasn’t sent me a million dollar check in weeks. Making a contribution of any amount, or buying a print for $40.00, makes you part of this specific resistance, and a member of Team Claytoonz (we’re still working on the name). You are complicit, an accomplice, and in cahoots (and whatever gangster terms we can think of) with this political satire pointing out that the stupid emperor has no clothes. Contributions can be made through PayPal, checks, and wads of cash exchanged in back alleys.
Whether you can help support, can’t, or just choose not to, please continue to enjoy and keep reading my work. Thank you!!!

  1. “Sometimes, dogs are better people than people.”

    Here’s a fact Clay…and I understand that you know what I’m about to present is fact.

    But, to The New Normal/Upside Down/Bizarro World/Douchebag Comb-Over Enlongated-Tie Mindset…this is the brand of truth that the Tangerine Tyrant loves to scream Fake News at:

    All of the time, dogs are better people than tRump the Chump and his people.
