George H.W. Bush’s Service Dog Sully Has A New Assignment

An invitation-only funeral service, which the Trumps will attend, is set for Wednesday at Washington National Cathedral.

As the nation mourned the death of former president George H.W. Bush over the weekend, his beloved service dog was by his side to the end.

President George W. Bush, son of the late president and himself "No. 43" in the line of presidents, led the Bush family in the ceremonial duties at the arrival of the casket and the early commemorations.

After the official ceremony, the public was allowed to pay its respects.

"I'm just here to pay my respects", said Jane Hernandez, a retired physician.

Democratic Representative Nancy Pelosi, the incoming House speaker, and Senate Democratic leader Charles (Chuck) Ellis Schumer placed wreaths at the ceremony.

And in June, when fellow former president Bill Clinton paid Bush a visit, he showed off some blue socks that had the Arkansas Democrat's face stitched into them.

Bush was elected US president in 1988 as the successor to Ronald Reagan.

Bush's body was flown to Washington, D.C., on Monday. Alan Simpson of Wyoming, former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney and historian Jon Meacham, Bush family spokesmen said.

Although Bush's funeral services are suffused with the flourishes accorded presidents, by his choice they will not include a formal funeral procession through downtown Washington.

It is a tradition for the stock market to close for funerals of former presidents.

After services in Washington, there will be another funeral in Houston on Thursday, followed by burial at the Bush Presidential Library in College Station, Texas.

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. Flags on public buildings are flying at half-staff for 30 days. "Honestly I just liked him", he said.
