President H.W. Bush to lie in state in Washington, D.C.

President George H.W. Bush's spokesman posted a photo to Twitter on Sunday night of the late president's service dog lying in front of a flag-draped casket.

Vice President Mike Pence offered condolences on behalf of the nation for the late President George Herbert Walker Bush, who died late Friday at age 94.

Sully was presented to President Bush in June 2018, with Bush tweeting about the lab and thanking America's VetDogs for training him.

Good boy, Sully. Good boy. "Bush in his daily activities", America's VetDogs said in a statement. The train will take about 2½ hours to travel roughly 70 miles (113 kilometers) to the city of College Station, home to Bush's presidential library at Texas A&M University.

Sully was named after Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger III, the pilot who landed a passenger jet on the Hudson River in New York City in 2009. Even before he arrived at his new home with Bush, Sully had his own Instagram page.

The body of former President George H.W. Bush will lie in state in the U.S. Capitol on Monday as his family and Americans mourn the loss of the 41st U.S. president.

The former president was matched up Sully after his wife of more than 70 years, Barbara, passed away. A second memorial service for Bush will be held at St. Martin's Episcopal Church at 9 a.m. MT Thursday.

President Bush had been receiving treatment for a form of Parkinson's disease and had been admitted to hospital with a blood infection in April.

"My friend Sully had the great honor of helping my friend Mr. President George H.W. Bush".
