George H.W. Bush's Service Dog Sully Remains by Casket

H.W. Bush arrives on the South Lawn of White House in Washington

Former President George H.W. Bush is returning to Washington as a revered political statesman, hailed by leaders across the political spectrum and around the world as a man not only of greatness but also of uncommon decency and kindness.

The late former president George H.W. Bush will lie in state in the U.S. Capitol rotunda from Monday evening until Wednesday morning. He will be honored during several private and public events in Houston and Washington before he is buried in Texas next to his wife, Barbara, and their young daughter Robin, who died in 1953.

After Bush's funeral ceremonies are over, Sully will join the facility dog program at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md., reported TV station KTRK in Houston.

The Instagram account for Bush's service dog, Sully, posted a touching photo of the dog in front of Bush's casket with the caption "Mission complete" following the 41st president's death at 94 on Friday.

His remains will arrive in Washington on Monday, and he will lie in state at the Capitol through Wednesday. It is therefore both touching and fitting that, according to his spokesman Jim McGrath, he will be "carried to his final rest wearing socks that pay tribute to his lifetime of service, starting as an 18 year-old naval aviator in war".
