Former President George H.W. Bush surprised the Maine State Police K9 Patrol School Friday when he came out of his Kennebunkport, Maine home to meet and greet the troopers and their dogs.
According to Maine State Police, each year, the graduating class of the K9 Patrol School takes a commemorative photo of the participating officers and dogs at a different location. This year, they worked with the secret service to make the photo opp possible at Walker's Point, where 92-year-old Bush spends much of his time.
Troopers were aware of Bush's presence but were taken by surprise when he was wheeled outside in his wheelchair and began to shake hands.
