Americans to Honor President George H.W. Bush in Washington

Former US president George H.W. Bush and his wife, former first lady Barbara Bush, arrive for the premiere of HBO's new documentary on his life near the family compound in Kennebunkport, Maine, on June 12, 2012.

It was truly an honor to have provided service dog Sully to be by the president's side for the past several months.

Bush will then be returned to Houston to lie in repose at St Martin's Episcopal church before burial on Thursday at his family plot on the library grounds. He was president from 1989 to 1993.

When former US President George HW Bush's body travels to Washington DC to lie in state, he'll be accompanied by a military guard of honour - and his faithful companion: Sully the service dog.

Sully is named after former airline pilot Chesley B.

"President Bush has left us for one last flight but his destination isn't unknown", tweeted Schwarzenegger. Rest In Peace, 41.

X-Men actress Olivia Munn shared the photo, saying: "This is his pup Sully, lying beside him til the very end".

"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, Walter Reed, that he brought to 41", Bush wrote.


Sully, a service dog, was given to Mr Bush by VetDogs earlier this year after his wife, Barbara Bush, died.

"And he cocked one eye open and quipped, 'Well, you better hurry", James Baker recalled today as he described the 41st president's final hours of life.

A contingent of former Bush staff members now living in Texas will join the mourners leaving Houston on Monday morning, former Ambassador Chase Untermeyer told Houston Public Media.

Before that his remains will be taken to Ellington Field Joint Reserve Base, Houston and Joint Base Andrews, Maryland, ABC said.

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

"Bush of course was defeated for re-election and most people at the time considered him a failed president" because of a recession during his time in the White House.

Speaking to the media, America's VetDogs said Sully will stay at their NY headquarters over the festive season and then undergo physical and occupational therapy.

His dog is named after the heroic pilot Chesley B "Sully" Sullenberger III who landed a plane on the Hudson River in NY saving all 155 people on board eight years ago.
