George HW Bush's Service Dog Sully Pictured By Coffin

Photo of George HW Bush's service dog mourning at his casket pulls the internet's heartstrings

He will be interred at the family plot at the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum in College Station.

Sully has his own Instagram account; here he is shown "assisting with voting" as Mr Bush cast his ballot in last month's USA presidential mid-term election.

He said Bush was the first president he ever voted for and was "the first president to teach me and many of us that in a democracy sometimes you fall short", and how you handle that, "is just as important as how you win". Wrote another, "Truly a lovely and heartbreaking moment".

Two days after Bush's death at age 94, family spokesman Jim McGrath posted a touching photograph Monday of the yellow Labrador retriever lying down in front of Bush's casket, with the accompanying phrase "Mission Complete" and the hashtag #Remembering41.

Sully will accompany Bush's casket on the Monday flight from Houston to Maryland, CNN reported, citing a source familiar with the plans. CNET sister site CBS News is covering the memorial events live.

The former president got Sully through America's VetDogs over the summer, about two months after the death of former first lady Barbara Bush, his wife of 73 years.

The body of the Republican former president will lie in state at the Rotunda through Wednesday, when a state funeral is scheduled at the Washington National Cathedral.

Bush's casket will be on public view until Wednesday morning, when it will be taken to the National Cathedral. The chairman of the National Governor's Association at the time was then-Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton, who later defeated Bush in the 1992 presidential election. The crew has been tasked by Trump with carrying out "Special Air Mission 41".

"America's VetDogs is deeply saddened by the loss of President @GeorgeHWBush".

During this service Bush's grandson George P. Bush will speak as will Bush's best friend, James Baker, Bush's chief of staff and Secretary of State and Secretary of the Treasury.

Trump has ordered the federal government to close on Wednesday and both the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq will be closed in observance.
